The other day while I was taking photos during sunset time in Chania, a guy approached me to show me the drone video he was filming. We sat down on the bench and he told me he is a Chania based photographer. I asked him whether he would like to give me this video to post it on my Instagram and on my blog, and he accepted. I am completely in love with drone videos. And how lovely it is to go to a place where you know no one (or okay, just a few) and meet people who share the same passion! To be honest, I wished for this to happened and it did!
This must be the best birthday cake I’ve ever had! I usually never celebrate birthdays or name dates, but this year, I happen to be in the beautiful Chania Old Town and I happen to have a friend who is a pastry chef. And if that wasn’t enough, we have birthday on the same day. Just in case you are looking for some cake inspiration, feel free to get inspired by our birthday cake. It tasted as delicious as it looks.
What a blessing to be spending Spring 2021 in this beautiful little town, Chania in Crete island! I bought this bouquet of flowers from the local market which takes place every Saturday here. There is only one person who sells flowers in the market. All the other sellers offer fruits and vegetables. Seems like buying flowers is not a habit for Greek people, as it is for the Parisian. So I bought them in a quite reasonable price. 9 bouquets for 15 euro! Well, if they are so affordable, I can buy them every week! I took some pictures of them, and then I put them in the vase. They will definitely last for one week!
When we took this photo, right behind me, there was a guy who was speaking in French on the phone. It was just him and us there, no one else. We actually stopped at this location because I found the light on the sea fascinating. I was curious to see what kind of photos this light could give us.
So we took a bunch of photos and filmed a few videos. We also hoped that we didn’t bother the Frenchman with our little photo shooting….He was laying on a beach sun bed and he was enjoying the sunshine.
He is the reason why I give the title ‘La Canée’ to this blog post, because La Canée means Chania in French. Without him knowing this, I dedicate this blog post to him. Most probably he might never get to know this…
The pandemic had me reconsidering the idea of living in a big city. Living in a big capital city nowadays, what for? There is nothing happening anyway, and no one is meeting no one. So much loneliness and isolation within the four walls of an apartment in a big city.
On the 1st of February I booked a one way ticket to Chania Chania Old Town, Crete. I wanted to leave the return open. I thought, I should stay in Chania Old Town for as long as I can. My flight was scheduled for the 25th of February. I had to wait 25 days till the day I could escape from the city life that is no longer beneficial…
Do you also feel like the pandemic has change the way we travel? Either we don’t travel at all, because traveling has become so complicated these days, or we travel and we stay long at the chosen destination. And I begin to like traveling more that way…
