... on Crete. It's a brief reprieve to what's coming. What stands between us and the sea is a 12%25 grade of maybe 30 switchbacks that wind their way all the way to, ***** ass Fackeon. It's a view to die for and if you're not careful you might. The Cretans are known for their rebelliousness and "don't give a ****" attitude. And we've hit the end of tourist season so it feels that way. There are beaches and restaurants and water taxis and bakeries but if ...
... and delightful maze of alleys and side streets. The area is a mix of Byzantine, Greek, Venetian and Turkish architecture. Tomorrow is a sea day. So we are just going to be lazy. The only thing we have to do tomorrow is meet face to face with Israeli immigration officials. We have an appointment with them in the morning. Those officials came on board in Barcelona. The following day we will be in Israel. It will be Happy Hour ...

We did a tour of the Palace of Knossos where the Monoan Civilization thrived in the Bronze age (roughly 3,000 BC) within the Aegean. The palace was ...
... I sit down and just chill until it comes back, I was not worried, nobody else seemed worried and the terminal didn’t say anything about the bus arriving. Aaron is getting frustrated, however it shows up (as I knew it would) and we jump on. It’s a long drive to Istron and we didn’t have a map laoded to figure out where to get off. Every bus you get on, they generally yell out every stop they make, so we figured it would be pretty easy…. Butttt we missed ...
