I was born in Rethymno, Crete. Physician, Writer, and Small Business Owner in Rethymno, Crete, Greece. Educated in Red Cross Hospital Athens. Family doctor in Greek National Health. I am married and I have two sons.
When I first felt the urge to travel, it was because of a desire to see a world I knew so little of, and to explore these places by myself, a sense of self-exploration.
Rethymno area is famous for its nature and culture. You can also explore local gastronomy and winery.
Rethymno is a lovely town with vivid Venetian and traditional architecture. The most characteristic sight of Rethymnon is the Fortezza, a strong castle built in the Medieval times. The region of Rethymno is probably the most unspoilt tourist area in Crete.
In its picturesque streets you will encounter contemporary buildings, traditional houses as well as mosques, byzantine churches and architectural structures of the venetian and turkish occupation period.
Crete is famous for its nature (beaches, mountains, gorges, caves, flowers, herbs, wild life), also for its tradition, culture and gastronomy.
