In my passport is mentioned Arnoldus as the first of my four christen names. The first name my parents choose for me is Arjan, the writer and creative founder of this website. But because most English speaking people have problems pronouncing this name, I use my first two initials to be known for every body, everywhere.
But… on Crete I am also known as Mr. Routaki; small routes with the Cretan name-ending -aki.
I came on the island for the first time in 1995 and have done a variety of jobs. Therefore I know a lot about the island. Working out my Routaki routes, which you can read about on the Routaki website, I learned even more.
On my Routaki Blog roll I share my experiences on a regular basis. But most of all I enjoy driving around and show my guests the typical Cretan aspects.
