It’s the perfect time to plan summer vacations now. The mood is right, there are lots of offers and there’s not much left until you actually get to go. And as always, I dream of Thassos.
Whenever I’m visiting another country I love to emerge in the local culture. I find there’s no better way of doing that than indulging in the local cuisine. Ok and probably visiting museums and stuff… but I love food so for me, that’s one of the priorities. Thassos was no exception. Greek food is so good! And that’s why I’ll take you on a gastronomical tour of the island.
OK, so summer vacation has been a lot on my mind lately. And the first thing that comes to my mind is the beautiful island of Thassos. With its diverse beaches and crystal clear water, this gem of the Mediterranean is also known as the “emerald island” thanks to it lush pine forests. It’s simply the dream destination for our summer vacation!
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.

I am not sure if everyone here knows that we here at Ticket to Nomadland are not (sadly) just travel bloggers. Our day jobs are actually in the Digital Marketing field. And as such we are avid travel app users, each with her own preferences, of course.
Last summer, as it often happens, we had no vacations plans whatsoever. After a lot of brainstorming, we decided that for late September Spain would be a good option.
After coming back from England, I wanted to dedicate an article just to British food. And that’s because I think it still has a bad reputation that is not accurate anymore. There might have been a time when the British cuisine meant fish and chips, Sheppard’s pie or breakfast made up of sausage and beans. But that’s not the case anymore.
