EXOTIC TRAVEL DESTINATIONS, part #1


CURRENT CONTENTS:
Air travel
Cappadocia, Turkey
Chania, Crete
Congolese hippodromes
Discount fares to Australia
Ford Ord national monument
Haifa (Holyland)
Hawai'i, US and Haida Gwaii, Canada













Authors' Note:

La Canea (lah cah-NAY-ah): Italian name of the city
La Canée (lah cah-NAY): French name of the city
Chaniá, also written Chania (kha-NYAH): modern Greek   pronunciation
KydoniaCydonia: Roman names for the city, presumably derived from the designation given by the rather mysterious Minoan early settlers

  The city of Chaniá on the north coast of Crete, although difficult to pronounce, is an excellent tourist hub due to the adjacent rugged but hikable country, with beautiful beaches, mountain gorges and archeological sites. The history of the area is fascinating. When Byzantium fell in 1204, crusaders took control of Crete. Venetians, under their ruling Doges, held the island primarily from 1245 to 1652, implanting their religious symbol, St. Mark

Authors' Note: Baha'i, sometimes known as "the youngest of the world's main religions", promotes universal brotherhood and spiritual unity. Members of the faith, like my dental hygienist, make pilgrimages to northern Israel, where there is a complex of sites including the Baha'i Gardens in Haifa, and temples in which the sect's Prophet-Herald, the Bab, and its Prophet-Founder, Baha'i-u'llah, are interred.
