Rallou Portokalaki

Rallou Portokalakis was born and raised in Heraklion, Crete and like many generations of Greeks before he, she grew to love the great history and culture of her country. Her father has been involved in tourism for the past 40 years and he has shared his passion for providing wonderful travel adventures in Greece - with her. This has inspired her to study tourism herself. Her experiences and knowledge, combined with her love of her country and the desire to share it with others have led her to follow in her father's footsteps and create Porto Planet.

Our trip was great, but of course, the highlight was our week on Crete. We have already made tsaziki, lots of boiled and sauted greens, the cucumber appetizers, the eggplant dip, and greek salad. We bought some grape leaves and phyllo dough so will try making some more dishes soon.As far as critical thoughts about our stay in Crete, we enjoyed the trip and learned so much about Cretan food, culture, and history. Thank you again for a fantastic week full of learning and good memories.
