Farewell to Crete

... the Island in Myrtos. The stops before Myrtos were unremarkable but the drive over there, in a four hour loop, took in some staggering views and both beautiful and bleak countryside.

You can see how some people wouldn't warm to her but we notched up the charm a few points and I think ...

Greece is having some financial trouble right now, so we plan to be very careful to avoid any demonstrations or protests. But we've been told by everyone we've talked to that we'll be just fine as tourists, and will likely not even notice or see anything unusual. We're looking forward to visiting the ...
