Yup! Rommel of The Sophomore Slump left California and is now living in Greece! I’m back in Europe, baby! 🙂 I’m here in the island of Crete and will be staying for a year or two.
The Sophomore Slump Recommends
Movie: Fight Club – Directed by David Fincher, this is a brilliant intellectual movie packed with unconventional words of wisdom masquerading in bloody and psychological scenes.
Here is one of Tyler Durden’s words … “It is only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.”

This is our backyard view from where I work.
Durng my first days here, I wondered when will I ever get to come close to that beauty.
I was completely okay with waiting it out. I don’t have a car right now. I don’t know the ways of the streets here. I don’t know how to get to point A to B.
So imagine my excitement when an old-time friend invited me to go to the mountains.
I was able to go to my first Greek travel destination within a week. I was happy as a clam. 🙂
We snaked through a very winding road on the way to Omalos here in Crete, Greece.
The drive gave me a headache. I had to close my eyes not to get dizzy. One of us actually puked, but she said she’s always that way.
But as always, never mind the hassles of traveling when you get views that are this beautiful…
See how tiny that person is from the picture above. Cool!
I’m not one to play on the snow but I always appreciate the beauty it creates.
Last Calls …
Crete is known for its beach scenes as people from all over the place come visit here during Summer. So during snowy winter season, Omalos is the way to go.
The first and this last picture is a view from my friend’s house. What a treat…
