As a supplement to yesterday's news, we would like to share a short video clip uploaded to youtube by Nikos Sarantos. Production films have been hosted on our website more than once. Including spectacular shots made with the use of a drone, they always left unforgettable impressions. It is no different this time, but the sound of the latest film by Nikos Sarantos is completely different.

Destroyed bridges and the vastness of the current Keritis river flowing in the area of Platanias are a testimony to the extent to which the inhabitants of Crete had to struggle. Probably many people visiting our website associate these places with their holiday stays. Certainly some of you, like us, often traveled through these overpasses. Today, these places look completely different.
Worrying about your holiday plans for this year's season keep in mind that the coming weeks will be an extremely difficult time for local residents. Many Cretans will have to deal not only with communication difficulties but also with the need to repair damage within their homes and businesses. For many of them, the upcoming tourist season can be very difficult and fearful. Certainly many of them will be wondering whether, due to the floods, tourists will not give up their arrival en masse.
If you want to somehow support the Cretans and plan a vacation this year on this island, we have a request to you: do not give up your reservations and do not cancel your trip. And even if you think about it, just do not do it under the influence of temporary emotions or fears. There is still a lot of time to start the high season. Cretans will certainly remove a large part of the damage and will do everything to make tourists feel at their best.
