Paleochora in My View – Christmas Competition 2016
It’s often said, and with good reason, that all visitors who come and discover what a special place Paleochora is, will inevitably return. Some, and there are many, have been coming annually for decades. A fortunate few have bought land and built a home in hills overlooking the town ; Lynne and I did just that, living happily for twelve years in her “paradise” until she left us in 2011, so badly missed.
Everyone has their favourite view of Paleochora ; for some, travelling over from Chania by car, taxi or ‘bus, it’s the avenue of eucalyptus trees as they enter the village, and think “I’m back.”
Others arrive by ferry, maybe from Loutro or Sougia, and watch excitedly from the deck as the “Samaria” approaches the Skala.
Everyone has their favourite cafe for breakfast, morning coffee or lunch by the sea ….
For this year’s competition, all you have to do is choose which of the twelve photographs is “Paleochora in My View”, and then – using no more than 140 characters – say why.
All entries will be judged, and a winner chosen, by Markella Perrakis, our town councillor with a special interest in tourism. And of course the usual prize, of a Ten-Euro gift voucher to exchange at “To Delfini” bookshop.
Happy Christmas – “Kala Xristougienna” – and much more to “Explore” in 2017
