In August last year as the international 'parea' on our Facebook Page kept growing, we decided it would be nice to reward the person who would be the 1000th 'Like' on our page.
That person turned out to be Chantal Anthonis, a very charming Flemish lady from the city of Gent in Belgium, now retired and living on - where else? - the beautiful Greek island of Crete - very convenient indeed, especially as that was where we would be going for our summer holidays, as we always do...
Chantal maintains a lively Facebook 'Fan Page' where she describes her everyday adventures on the sunny island of Crete, Chantal Anthonis:Lekkerweg in Kreta
In addition to his house, Clive also bought a tiny property nearby which used to be the village 'kafenion' many years ago. It needs some work doing to it as he plans to open it as a small 'art school' someday....
Clive had a design company in England which he says "was great but very demanding. Now, I take whatever comes my way... a more relaxed way of life here on a Greek island."
Paradise on earth... What more can a person ask for?
since we are talking about paradise here are some pictures of our day in Crete's beautiful Rethymno...
the beauty that is Greece!
We even got our portrait done in the shade of this beautiful church
traditional bread products and Cretan wedding loaves
Collectors' items Athens 2004 Olympic Volunteer Swatch and pins
Lovely to meet you Chantal and Clive! Keep up the great work promoting Crete and Greece!
