Crete part 3: The Little Fun Train

Like a proper tourist I decided to go for one of the trips on The Little Fun Train. I went on one last year and enjoyed it at lot. This year I went for a trip called Hidden Treasures.

Our first stop was at a local winery in a small village called Vatolakos we tasted local wine outside an old Cretan house at the Monousakis family winery that has won european awards for their quality and taste.

Most of the trip went through the orange and olive groves, there was also avocado and pommegranades grown.

It was quite an interesting scenery we got to see on our ride with the cute little train.

After this the train drive us to a monastary on the hillside of Varipeto where we got to visit the Greek Orthodox monastary of Metamorphosis.

The monastary had quite an amazing view. And it was a very interesting place to visit.

On our way home we had a quick stop at a local farmer selling freshly squeezed orange juice!

All in all it was a great ride even if my behind has sat in better seats that those on the train.

  1. What a nice virtual adventure for my lunchtime. Thanks for letting us come along, Maja. Hugs!

  2. The Greek church is amazing. We are not a fan of those trains, much more fun getting sore feet and not a numb bum 🙂

    A drink by the very trees the fruit came from? Now that sure was fresh!
    By the way, I find it kinda funny that there is in fact an orthodox monastary by the name of ‘Metamorphosis’. 🙂 (No offense, please).

    Gorgeous photos, Maja and feel as I’m transported there! The train looks fun but hopefully less painful than the one I went on in St. Augustine, Florida – I felt pummeled afterward. A lovely post! 😃
