This year we made our adventure to move our office for a week to Crete. Crete is the largest island in Greece and is located in the southern Aegean. It has more than 600,000 inhabitants and 8,336 km². It was in Crete that the Minoan Civilization flourished, a civilization that is considered the oldest on record in Europe.
Changing the office is always a big challenge. This time we chose to make two changes, first to the left part of the island in Chania, and then to the right part of the island in Elounda. Work, collaborate, having fun, and getting to know the island were our plans.
The adventure began with a mishap, the plane was 3 hours delayed in Porto, which made us lose the connection we had in Barcelona to Chania. So the strikes and hassles at the airport meant that we arrived at our destination a day late. It was Saturday, so it did not affect customers, but we had lost a whole day of fun.
We came to Chania on Saturday night. On Sunday we prepared everything to start on Monday without interrupting the work, and so it was …. We loved Chania so much that later during our stay in Eolunda we went back there. Chania is really beautiful, very characteristic, and is an hour from the beach of Elafonisi, and the beach of the Bay of Balos, two places not to be missed.

During the week we moved our office again from Chania to Elounda, which was a three hour drive. The change didn’t go very well, since the long drive meant we left some tasks to do for the next day …. After arriving, we prepared everything, answered some emails, and went to dinner.
Beautiful scenery, spectacular beaches, and good food defined our stay. Changing the office to a different place each year is always an experience to repeat!
We have already started voting for the next destination, the requirements remain the same: a safe place, with internet connection, and good places to eat.
