      We left our safe haven to drive to the Lasitsi Plateau at 900 metres high our guide book said, it's a vast expanse of green fields inter dispersed with almond trees and orchards. We stopped by the beach to walk Logan and drove through a couple of towns looking for somewhere to get some documents printed off, we couldn't find anywhere so started the climb up to the plateau. It wasn't long before we hit the snow line, ...

      Just an occasional hail storm this morning, so we are going to drive into Heraklion the 5th largest city in Greece and the capital city of Crete. We stopped along the way first to let Logan have a run and then to shop, as well as food we bought a cheap electric fan heater, we thought that when we have hook up we could use it instead of the diesel heater. Also as we will be coming back across Europe in the winter it will ...

The process starts by dumping the bags into collectors to go up the conveyors to a vacuum to extract leaves. As they fall, they are washed and after they water is separated, they go to the grinder. After being ...

      Today we starting harvesting. The day of picking the olive off the ground are over. Today they use nets spread out over the area and the use a olive tree beater. It's a long shaft with a rotating head that has several rubber sticks that beat the tree branches and knock the olive off. What I thought was a peaceful harvest, is anything but. You need a generator to power the beaters and they hit the branches, constantly making noise and shredding the tree as olives are thrown ...

      Today I made it out to the farm, where I will spend the next bit of time, being a farmhand. The owner is Kostos and his wife will be the main ones hosting. They have three sons that help run the hotel and will help with the harvest on the farm. They have several hundred trees that they will harvest over the next couple months. It sounds like we will start harvesting in a few ...
