My first ever holiday was to Crete, Greece in August. It was incredible.

This morning we set off for a little beach just outside Chania for a few hours of relaxation before a late lunch at Johnny's aunt's house. Lunch was in the village, and again under a beautiful canopy of grape vines that kept you very cool and comfortable. On the menu was an octopus casserole type dish with olives and a slight BBQ flavored sauce, some grilled octopus, ...
... and after much indecision) we decided to just drive back to Chania and I'd bunk with Nick and Lisa in a spare bed in their room. This caused an impromptu dinner put on by Johnny's cousin Evanthia, and her husband Efthisi did the grilling. At least 2 dozen pork chops were grilled, lamb chops, pilafi, salad, and I can't even remember the rest. So much food. So good. And most of the family joined ...

We got off at the second village stop where we boarded a bus back to Chania. But to get back into the mountains and off the coast we went through more switchbacks.

The Fereniki Resort and Spa Complex was good. At the end of the day it's just a place to rest your head after exploration. I traveled to Crete with my boyfriend and two of our friends all inclusive and none of us were disappointed, but we were not necessarily overwhelmed either.
The room had all we needed - a bed and a bathroom (it included a fridge, too to keep our bottled water cool). There was a balcony which was very handy for drying our clothes but unfortunately didn't' receive any sunlight, and our room was right beside the pool, which was fantastic.
The hotel wasn't the most hygienic (which wasn't expected anyway) and the smell of the lavatory waste disposal wafted about every now and then, but we were too busy enjoying our holiday experiences to spend too much time worrying about the hotel. There was so much to do in Crete that staying around the resort seemed a waste of time!
