... We picked out a cute little restaurant in a square just off the busiest roads. There we had another fabulous meal. Greek salad, amazing grilled mushrooms (no idea what kind, but they looked like fans), and a house “special” – feta wrapped in bacon and eggplant. Seriously, that was the best thing we’ve eaten here. We were sad to find out that this wasn’t a traditional Greek dish as one of the ladies at the shop ...
... in the tiny town of Agia Pelaglia. The town has a few tiny beaches and surrounded by olive and grape plants on the hills. We were greeted in the morning with breakfast on the balcony including home made Greek yoghurt and honey, homemade bread with jams made by 'muma' and plenty of baklava, fruit and tomatoes. After breakfast we wondered down into town to the beaches, and after climbing a few rocks were rewarded with ...
... and waited on the tow line for everyone else to get in. Without our snorkels we were forced to decide to either waste air (Brad) or suck water (Jen). When everyone got in, we finally descended.

... We spent a few extra euro in Heraklion and this hotel room did not disappoint! Very cute and not one, but TWO air conditioners! We’re gonna sleep good tonight.
We purchased a combination ticket to visit the Heraklion Archeological Museum and the Knossos Palace. The hotel is well situated for this, as the Museum is on the same block, and Knossos could be visited by bus which could be caught on the same block. ...
How has this condo rated in the past?
Hersonissos is a small port 30mins by car from Heraklion airport, it cost us 40Eurs and getting lost approx 5times before we reached villa Sonia.
The rooms are quite basic and beds not that great to sleep on....however the one thing undisputed is the stunning view from the vila.
You get to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of waves.
We were left with vochers for breakfast in the nearby cafes which claims to serve the best yogurt and honey on the island. (almost true)
