Hiking and hacking on Crete


Article from Issue 84/2007

Wireless Sirtaki, synchronized penguin swimming, bottle cap diving in the pool – only a few disciplines that were part of the annual Linux Beer Hike, aka “Linux Bier Wanderung.”

From the 2nd to 9th of September, about 40 geeks from all over the world met up in Hersonissos, Crete, Greece. The area is a very popular tourist destination and at first it seemed a bit difficult to find other attendees in the crowded little town, but after the “pub of the day” was announced on the mailing list everyone spent a good first evening together. The temperatures made it a little challenging to muster up the energy to go on hikes, and so it was no surprise that the “Welcome Hike” ended with several geeks splashing and paddling in the Mediterranean Sea. During the week though, people got used to the weather so that several excursions to Knossos, the Skinakas observatory, and the Samaria Gorge could take place.
