The Freedom to Fail

A travel blog entry by keficrew

... it's honestly not about the end product. It's about the process of taking a risk, putting yourself out there and having the freedom to fail. Another thing I have learned this week that I will take home with me is that creativity and critique are not meant to happen in close proximity to one another. We all are so afraid to fail that the little voice in our heads tells us ...

A Blank Canvas

A travel blog entry by keficrew

... on a blank canvas is simple. Just start! We all have our own thoughts and desires; our own story. That’s where we start. Who doesn’t like to share their own thoughts or ideas? Everyone can write by just putting down random thoughts without even thinking about the chaos on the paper. You can set a ...

... then some sort of old (ancient) historical piece like most other Greek towns. And according to the book Joni Mitchell was inspired to write Carey because of it (never heard of it or at least don't recognize the name so I can't comment yet). The town is centered around a crescent shaped bay with 60-70 ft cliffs on each side that slope down to the water at each of the far ends. On one side there are ancient Roman tombs hewn ...

... port coming back. They'd be finished with dinner by the time we got back. A slower pace and hopefully enough time to explore the rest of the island. It was breathtaking and gorgeous, and like I said, you don't see that ever day. Ideally I'd be just island hopping all over the Aegean Sea with no time table whatsoever. This morning we're heading south across Crete back to ...

A Pile of Rocks and Iraklion

A travel blog entry by haysnoe

... common in all such ancient palaces. Visitors to this palace had to be made aware of the importance of the ruler living there and usually the entrances to such sites are large in scale by design. Also, a large central courtyard paved with stones is still evident and was clearly a focal point of ritual and daily life in the palace. Beyond that, the remains are mostly only low walls showing some patterns of rooms on a site of perhaps only ten acres.


We then had a choice ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Europa Beach Hotel Heraklion

    Okay hotel, but dissappointing food

    from

    I booked this holiday online, feeling confident about it after reading some of the reviews. However I do not agree with all of them.

    Excellent value for money

    from

    Booked this holiday via internet after reading TripAdvisor reviews. The hotel is a little isolated but there are good, cheap local buses to get you out and about. The main bar is the only area open in the evening, with the pool bars serving drinks all day until 6pm. The rooms are basic but clean, with everything you need, including TV for news channels. We started off on the ground floor which was a little dark, but were changed on request to a room overlooking the pool which was really bright and comfortable. The Chef does a wonderful job, and we enjoyed every meal, which were varied, hot and fresh, with a good supply of vegetables, (and the home made bread is 'to die for' )! All in all we had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday, and would certainly revisit the Europa.

    Great Hotel

    from

    After reading some of the reviews already in existence on some sites about the Europa Beach, I was a little concerned about what we may find when we actually arrived, but our worries were completely unnecessary.

    Great All Inclusive

    from

    The Europa Beach hotel is situated about 25 minutes walk away from the main village and beach area right on the sea front. It does have a nice clean sandy beach just outside, which isn't run by the hotel, but is only used by the hotel guests due to its location. The beach is still well kept, with sun lounges, walkways and a shower at a reasonable cost. The Hotel is lovely; it is fairly new and very well presented and has been well maintained. The entertainment staff are very friendly and there is a lot of choices for adults and children, including table tennis, boules, volleyball, water polo, discos... The food was very good; it was always well presented and cooked, with a good choice. However it is real meals like fish, pastas, spaghetti, vegetables, soups and various meat dishes, so no chips/burgers etc if that's what you want. The selection of drinks is also very impressive with far more cocktails and spirits then many other places would offer. Overall a very good holiday destination and a good all inclusive package, if not ideal for those who like a more central location.

    Loved the staff x

    from

    This was a marvellous Hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful, this was a far better hotel than I was expecting.. would definitely return asap

    Very clean and tidy, but...

    from

    We returned on 27 Aug 04 after a week's stay at the Europa Beach, Analipsi. We found the hotel to have an impeccable standard of cleanliness and the food was excellent. The pools were clean and there were always beds and parasols available. There were a few negative points... We drank several beers from the poolside bar every day, yet remained completely sober, in fact on occasion we bought some bottles from the hotel shop to just get a kick! The rooms are above average, but are separated to one adjacent room by a thin fire door. We were frequently wakened by the loud snoring of our neighbour. The entertainment we thought was very amateur (seen better at Haven)although the animation staff were friendly. Be warned, it's a long walk to the nearest habitation! George the restaurant manager is friendly when you first meet him, after that he will ignore you. The pools are deep and hardly gradual. Watch your kids if they can't swim.

    Wonderful holiday

    from

    An excellent holiday for all 4 of us.

    Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

    The food was tasty and we enjoyed trying the different foods on offer. Meals were easy and uncomplicated - plentiful food well-presented and a wide variety.

    The room and the complex were very clean. The pools and communal areas looked after well. Towels provided and replaced as necessary.

    20min walk into local village with good range of shops and eateries, but other tavernas along the beach front if you wanted to eat out.

    Coach trips are available.

    The kids club meant the grown ups got peace and quiet each morning and afternoon.

    We had a great time and would happily return.

    Ideal location for a quiet break

    from

    This hotel is listed as 4 star by the tour operator. This clearly is misleading and is a lot closer to 3 stars. However, this doesn't mean that the Europa isn't a nice hotel. It is. The staff are extremely friendly and are approachable. This is an all inclusive package, and I suppose that being spoilt in a 5 star Cancun hotel hasn't made it easy to go down a notch or two. Again, the food is varied and pleasant to eat, although if it's fantastic flavours and spices you're after, this menu doesn't have it. Pasta's, meat dishes, fish and vegetables. Salads, soups, fresh baked bread and amazing cake desserts make up the daily buffet. American breakfast is also good quality. Two pools, one fresh water and the other salt water. Plently of loungers, although get up late and you've missed the boat. Drinks available nearly all day and location is beach front and hot. Clean room, daily maid service and roomy. Shutters also give darkness when requiring those afternoon naps.
