Everything about Agia Roumeli

Agia Roumeli is a very special and unique place.Situated at the Southern coast of Crete at the exit of the Samaria Gorge. Agia Roumeli is a small village with 120 permanent residents.It surrounded by wild mountains and a long beach of fine pebble by the clear Libyan sea.The village is remote and a little isolated. You can only reach it on foot or by boat.There is no road.

A few lucky visitors have discovered that Agia Roumeli is a superb place to spend their holidays in and they tend to return again and again.In Agia Roumeli and its surroundings you can relax, you almost forget it exists.Agia Roumeli has no nightlife, no cinemas and no entertainment. However anyone who can relate to nature can find plenty to do.

At a distance of one hour’s walking, following the path, there is the Byzantine monastery of Agios Pavlos at the homonymous beach.This is the spot where St. Paul is said to have landed on Crete on his voyage to Greece. Further on, this path takes you to the beach of Marmara, the village of Loutro and eventually Hora Sfakion which is about 7 hours walk from Agia Roumeli. You can then take one of the frequent boats back to Agia Roumeli.With the mountains so close you might also want to walk up to the two ruined castles, situated on the nearest western hillside of the village. The view from the castles is superb.Last but not least, you will want to have a look at the gorge of Samaria. It is not difficult to walk upwards from Agia Roumeli and if you go in the early morning you will have this beautiful gorge almost to yourself.

The location is perfect for unwinding, forgetting the cares of the world and indulging in the drinking of the local wines, notably tsikoudia, and eating the local cuisine for which the island is famous. This is not a destination for the sophisticated tourist, but more for the discerning traveller looking for a laidback, and unforgettable expirience.

Holiday in Paris

If I had a choice of a country to holiday in, I would like it to be Paris. Paris is one of the most spectacular cities in the world containing a wealth of history and culture. With countless Art Galleries, scores of top museums and stunning historical monuments there is something to please every visitor. If I was there, I would like to visit the Louvre Museum because it is unquestionably one of the finest museums in the world.

To walk through the Louvre Museum is to walk through the history of France and into the minds of kings and revolutionaries. Moreover, I would like to visit the Versailles by bike because it is so massive, so this is the only way to see them.Finally I would like to visit the Eiffel Tower. I can imagine what you can see from the top of tower. I think almost all Paris. For all these reasons I would like to go to Paris.

My best classroom experience began about two years ago. It was when I decided to use a computer to practise English. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the computer lab and learnt a great deal. I felt like a little child who takes a gift and everything was very interesting for me.But sincerely,what I felt is nothing compared to how I feel now!

Everything started when my teacher Christina suggested I should have a blog. It was a great idea! She is highly experienced with the Net with proven IT skills, so she took the initiative to show me this magic world.

She co-ordinates everything and motivates me to achieve my objectives. It's fantastic that now I can communicate with different people all over the world and get across my ideas. She broadens my horizons and I would like to tell her thank you for everything and also that I am willing to do everything it takes so that she takes pride in me.
