I’m 56 (but don’t look it!!). My partner and I want to live in Crete but my partner can’t move there for some years because of his work. I know Crete very well, have been going there for many years.
1. Are there any women out there who are living on their own and loving it?
2 Do they miss their partners, if they have one?
I know women have to be safe where ever they go. I’m very aware that Crete is very family-conscious society and that living on my own for long periods may be frowned upon.
I like Kastelli in Kissamos very much but can’t seem to find the right kind of house. I don’t drive and need somewhere near buses and taxis. Have been thinking about Voukolies, near Tavronitis which has an excellent bus service or Kolimbari. Any woman out there in Voukolies and Kolimbari Lands able to urge me to ‘come on over for Pete’s sake’

I confess that my experience is extremely limited but I’ve found most natives to be very friendly and tolerant of other cultures. If you take the trouble to integrate, I think your Cretan friends will welcome you into their own big family.
