On the path to the second Cache invited these blue chairs5 to relax

And then this cache6 had been

Page 8: GEOcaching - Crete

The third Cache 7 was nothing, but three in one day would be too much. 8

7 Stalida; Malia Bay; GC1DKH2; N 35°17.530 E 025°25.7008 Except reading glasses and lots of stones was really not found there.

Page 9: GEOcaching - Crete

and a scrap


9 Pararge aegeria (L)

There was this beautiful butterfly9

Page 10: GEOcaching - Crete

On the way to the fourth Cache I

passed this famous10


10 I don't know for what, but maybe for the warm water, but that probably on the black hose that was lying in the sun.

Page 11: GEOcaching - Crete

In the fourth Cache was also the way the target11

11 The way is always the goal, but no matter.

Page 12: GEOcaching - Crete

But the aim12 was not sooo bad13

12 Perivolakia gorge; GC22X8R; N 35°01.535 E 026°03.02013 There aren't bad caches.

Page 13: GEOcaching - Crete

14 Xerókambos on the east coast (and not in the southwest as described above); Amblos-Fantasies; GC1V85M; N 35°02.453 E 026°13.91715 except of course a lot of debris

Page 14: GEOcaching - Crete

On the way to the west, we passed this remarkable16 place

17 Mirtos on the south coast, Bennies MultimicroMirtos; GC163WZ; N 35° 00.208 E 025° 34.86718 at least the owner claims this

Page 16: GEOcaching - Crete

Our next destination was the petrified, crying lion19.

19 The lion is sad because he has missed the jump to Africa in the Continental division.

Page 17: GEOcaching - Crete

Here again, the way20 was the goal

20 Way? There was no way!

Page 18: GEOcaching - Crete

And the cache21 was then even better!22

21 Steinmännle Kreta-Dytiko (Cairn Crete-Dytiko); GC1GEER; N 34° 55.611 E 024° 55.19822 Actually, that was the best cache (until then)!

Page 19: GEOcaching - Crete

And the view23 was not bad either!

23 to Lendas and in the other direction

Page 20: GEOcaching - Crete

On the way back we went past yet this cache24

24 GC1GKJY; Relax in Dytikos; N 34° 55.780 E 024° 54.896As you see, was this cache in a German restaurant

Page 21: GEOcaching - Crete

The cache was very easy, the Internet offered rather weak25, however I was compensated by this beautiful butterfly.26

25 Unfortunately it had no printer.26 This is the extinct in Germany swallowtail

Page 22: GEOcaching - Crete

On the way to the next cache, there was interesting things27 to


27 First, an old German army vehicle andsecond, an even more ancient Cretan icon box

This cache28 is next to the military cemetery29 of Maleme

28 ANZAC 107; GC1VBWN; N 35°30.890 E 023°53.29529 It would be better if you had never used these

Page 24: GEOcaching - Crete

This cache we had to unfortunately cancel before the finish30, but the view was great

This was a very easy cache31 in the vicinity of Kissamos

Page 26: GEOcaching - Crete

Next to the church was a restored wash-house32

Page 27: GEOcaching - Crete

For the next two caches33 our equipment was not suitable34

33 Ménies Bay; GC13DXZ und Sanctuary of Diktynna; GC1ZPNN34 Very small rentalcar

Page 28: GEOcaching - Crete

I was compensated by this strange plant35

35 but didn't known this plant

36 FTF: FIRST TO FIND; I‘m the first!37 mythos-dreaming wedding cache-Crete; GC295YB; N 35° 30.643 E 023° 33.962

Morning on the map a new Cache discovered

and immediately went there. After one hour I was on target37

Page 30: GEOcaching - Crete

... And here's the proof


38 This is my

Page 31: GEOcaching - Crete

As the owner39 described the view from up there is really great.

39 This is the one who placed the cache,in this case, "mythos-dreaming" from Austria.

Page 32: GEOcaching - Crete

On the way back to the parking lot you could admire the remains of a Doric40 city

40 The Dorians came around 1000 BC by Crete

Page 33: GEOcaching - Crete

This cache41 has a superb views to the airport of Chania, but I haven't

found it42!

Page 34: GEOcaching - Crete

I was not so enthusiastic43 about this cache44 in a clothing store.

43 As you can see.44 Karen's Chania Cache; GCPPP9; N 35° 30.929 E 024° 01.014

Page 35: GEOcaching - Crete

And also the next cache45 was borderline46

45 Owl of Chania; GCVDDB; N 35° 30.789 E 024° 00.37246 Caches in shops and pubs are just a matter of flavour

Page 36: GEOcaching - Crete

Page 37: GEOcaching - Crete

In Georgioupolis48 I was then on that clear but cold stream ...

48 Georgioupolis; GC1V1FQ; N 35° 22.089 E 024° 15.596

Page 38: GEOcaching - Crete

... With a pizza49, I decided spontaneously, to set50 my first cache51


49 Taverna Sunlight near by the beach50 NOW I AM A OWNER!51 GEORGIOUPOLIS - KERIAKI; N 35° 22.083 E 024° 15.728, a Micro

Soon I had found a suitable place52

Page 40: GEOcaching - Crete

In the cave of Zeus53, it was dark

53 Birth cave of Zeus in Psychro on the Lasithi plain

Page 41: GEOcaching - Crete

And nearby54, there was this cache55

54 It was not so close, but after some climbing over goat paths I lifted him yet!55 DIKTAION ANDRON; GC11AP1; N 35° 09.664 E 025° 26.675

Page 42: GEOcaching - Crete

Once again there was a pizza56, and again I had the idea to take my leave with a cache of Crete

56 In Agios Konstantinos on the edge of the Lasithi Plain

At the car park you can see a working Cretan wind-powered water pump

Page 43: GEOcaching - Crete

The view from this cache57 to Agios Konstantinos is really


57 Good bye Crete, Agios Konstantinos

Page 44: GEOcaching - Crete

On the way back, near a Byzantine church I found this cache58
