Caïque Boat at Sunrise – Crete, Greece

Caïque Passing Spinalonga as Sunrise

Fall 2015 brings us to the Greek island of Crete. The tranquility of a cool sunrise is broken by the slow puttering of a traditional Caïque Greek fishing boat as it passes between the mainland town of Plaka and the island of Spinalonga in the Gulf of Elounda in north-eastern Crete.

Hjo is a small picturesque Swedish town on the western shores of Sweden’s second largest lake, Lake Vättern. The town, which dates back to the early 1400s, is one of the only original Swedish “wooden cities” that remains largely intact, complete with cobbled streets on the town square. While historically operating primarily as a fishing village and later a spa town, it has now become a popular summer destination for those wishing to experience the slower, more idyllic ambiance of “old” Sweden.
