What if you could walk on water? Better still, what if you could cycle instead? If memory serves me well, my own childhood mental excursions ventured to these possibilities back in central Florida. If only the inventor of Schiller Bikes, Judah Schiller had been around back then! The land of 1000 lakes, is a magic place in my memory. Places like Silver Springs, Winter Park, Lakeland, Lake City and others attest to that part of Florida's wa...

Introduction
If you know me, you don't need this information do you? If not? 

An author and consultant, I began exploring the web about the time Caesar commissioned it to be made. No seriously. I author several news columns, advise Internet companies, and analyze just about everything. 

Check out Everything PR News, Argophilia Travel News, or the archives of some famous tech blogs - I've been around some. As you may be able to tell, I am not always comfortable talking about me. I am however, one of the world's great husbands and dads.

Having only had Hungarian cuisine at a few restaurants in the United States, and at a Hungarian friend's house here in Germany, this Schweich restaurant is now one of my favorites. One might think something like Goulash is easy to make, but I can tell you, the difference in between genuine and "thrown together" soups is vast. Super hospitable, and casual as can be, this local restaurant is a welcome addition to the normal Germany and Italian gastronomy we've grown used to. Try the Palinka here, if you are brave enough for the burn. Expect decent prices on a par with other local eateries. You won't go away hungry, the portions are massive here too.

My family and I arrived in Heraklion on a blustery day in March, 2014. A bit of a storm was blowing in from the sea, the airport was cool and windswept as you'd expect. On arriving at the Lato one of the first things that impressed us was how "apologetic" everyone was over the weather. Having arrived from Germany, the obvious warm for us, and the refreshing atmosphere, made us smile at what we later knew as "Filoxenia" - the Cretan love of travelers. The most spectacular view in the city, perfectly attentive staff, and especially the cuisine here, these and more aspects of the hotel impressed us all mightily. Guests we took to dinner were as impressed by the new chef and the wine selection. Finally, the best thing I took with me home was the memory of waking up, head on a crispy white pillow, staring out at the azure Cretan Sea and the Venetian Fortress. Life should always be like room service at Lato. And I've stayed at 1000 hotels.

Kevin basically rules South Florida condo sales. On top of this, he knows a thing or two about the web. This latter factor puts him about 500 light years ahead of his competition.

Brillant chef Zinonas Christofidis is a genius of creativity and presentation. Guests here can expect the full gourmet treatment, leaving off the pretension and price usually associated with the best gastronomy. This is a classy establishment that offers creative traditional Cretan cuisine. Ask for the hotel director's favorite wine suggestions, this alone will exceed your expectations for the place. I had the Lamb “soutzoukakia”, which is a kind of Greek meatball made with lamb, wheat, and fresh mint for a main - magnificent!

Whatever else these nice folks do, they sure created a nice real estate search mechanism. :)

These folks know what they are doing! SEO is getting back to its basics and the better companies (like this one) are leading the way.
