I can order very cheap flights Oslo<->Chania 4. to 11. April. Highly tempting to go there even if I end up being all on my own ...

We are considering a revised time slot, from 4 to 11 April, 2017.

I will attend and so will Elsid.

Any NG member  interested ought to communicate this as soon as possible.

Looking into the possibility to take a holiday trip on those dates with my wife, we may then participate in some of the days, if that is OK?

Absolutely. It is allowed to enjoy the location(s) and local cuisine too. Life is more than just photography.

I won't be able to join you this time. Too complicated flight connection and overlapping with a vacation trip.


Wish you a fantastic meet up!

A pity. I want to revisit Greece and Crete is an earlier favourite location of mine. Thus I'll be joining even were I the only one.

Unfortunately I will not be able to go.
Only a few weeks before I am going on another short trip, leaving my wife and daughter behind, so that's me done traveling on my own until at least next autumn.
I have been to Crete, and specifically Chania, in the late spring almost 7 years ago and would recommend it to anyone.
The old city is lovely. Aside from the obvious (the little streets and the beautiful harbout) I enjoyed the covered market, well worth a visit, lots of photo opportunities.
The not so distant Rethymno is also nice. Heraklion has a lot to offer and is also worth a visit if you are up for a long day driving.
Also do visit the beaches to the west, especially Elafonissi, and on the mountains Omalos, a very special place indeed.
For the adventurous, the Samaria gorge is famous and beautiful.
