Liebe Isabella
Ich habe wunderbare Ferientage erlebt, und durfte einen Teil Südkretas auf eine Art kennenlernen, wie dies mit mit einer herkömmlichen Ferienbuchung nie möglich gewesen wäre.
Neben den Tanzstunden, die ich sehr genossen habe, hast Du uns an untouristische Orte geführt, uns deren "Flair" gezeigt, und vieles zu deren Geschichte, auch allgemein zu Griechenland und im Speziellen zu Kreta erzählt und erklärt. Das war toll! Die Vielfalt dessen, was ich gesehen und erfahren habe, fasziniert mich sehr.
Deine Spontanität und Ungezwungenheit hat mir Eindruck gemacht und auch die Tatsache, wie Du da voll integriert bist, und von den Menschen geschätzt und geachtet wirst.
Ich habe viele wertvolle Erfahrungen gemacht und liebenswürdige, offene und im Leben engagierte Menschen kennengelernt.
Dafür danke ich Dir von Herzen, und natürlich für die tollen Tanzabende zu Live-Musik!

Priska F.
