The beach "Kolokytha" (which means pumpkin) is on the Kalydon Peninsula, the same peninsula as is the infamous, last active leper colony in Europe of Spinalonga. Despite being October, the sea was quite warm and pleasant.

HikingPosted on Tuesday, 2nd of October 2018 • personal • permanent link •Read time: 2 minutes
Continuing my autumn trips, I went hiking over the last weekend of September which happened to be a long one in Czechia. This time I went to the Krkonose Mountains which are the highest and most visited Czech mountains. I booked a great hotel.
All in all it was a great and relaxing experience the highlight of which was a 20 kilometer hike at ~ 1.300m height.
Sailing as an infosec lessonPosted on Monday, 24th of September 2018 • personal • permanent link •Read time: 2 minutes
Last Thursday I took my CRISC exams and - the restless person I am - I had already arranged to take sailing classes over the weekend. I always wanted to take sailing classes, and I had gone sailing once several years ago when I was still living in Greece. My idea was that when I grow old I will buy a small sailing boat and sail around my beloved Crete.
