I’ve been itching so badly to write this post. My boyfriend and I both love Greek food! And we both agree there’s something really special about it. Because although it’s not exotic like Thai food or pretentious like a Michelin restaurant menu, it’s just as amazing. It’s simple and fresh and oh so tasty. And Crete hasn’t disappointed in this area either. We had some of the best food on the island. And now I am going to tell you where, but most important what to eat when in Crete.
Last summer has come and gone so fast that our trip to Crete seems so long ago. It’s been a busy couple of months and I’ve been meaning to write about Crete earlier, but here we are. It has been one of the best vacations ever. And a huge part of that is because of the amazing beaches. The other part is because of the food, but that’s another story for another time.
It has been one of my biggest dreams to visit Crete and especially the Balos and Elafonissi lagoons on its Western coast. I have already documented my love of Greece in a lot of posts. And Crete has only helped make me love it even more. However, coming from Romania, transportation can be a bit expensive and limited. So I felt like Crete was not that tangible for a lot of time. But with a bit of planning and research, you can make your Cretan dream come true.
There are few other cuisines as popular as the Italian one. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t ever tried pizza, pasta or tiramisu. And most people love it too! So imagine my excitement at finally having the opportunity to taste the real deal. No interpretations, no shortcuts, the real Italian food right from the source.

I get a feeling that a lot of us have already used Airbnb to book an apartment or a room whenever we travel. So I am always a bit surprised when I meet the occasional reluctant person. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. But I just thought by now anyone has tried it once.
New York has always been on the very top of my list of places to visit. It probably has to do with the many movies and shows we see on TV that take place in NYC. It also has a lot to do with the architecture, the art scene, and the food. So when I got there I really had to pinch myself to believe I was actually in Manhattan!
