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!

... local scene for evening chatter and food. At any given moment there an orchestra of sounds. Not unpleasant but conversations. It's what Kamloops could be if we in-filled the downtown core instead carved up green space for housing. The harbour is fortified from centuries of war over real estate and religion. The thinking was that if you built walls difficult to penetrate and garrisons to protect them from danger, invaders would be deterred. Didn't work. ...

We have tea, some pastries, see the old olive press, grain mill and then the old tavern owner lady hops in the car with us to let us into the 800 year old orthodox church. We arrive with another taxi driver and couple. We see the church, Pantelis’s uncle’s grave and then the other taxi driver has to take the old lady tavern owner back and we somehow get this British couple in ...
... 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 ...
On Katherine's to do list from her 1976 trip to Europe after university was the hike down the Samaria Gorge. At 16 km, it is the longest gorge in Europe. It was a bridge too far then but not this time, 40 years later. This time we were staying in Hania which is the closest city to the Gorge. We booked a round trip bus from our hotel. Although the pickup time was earlier than a regular bus we were guaranteed ...
... lots of tourists.
Day 2 we booked our trip to the Samaria Gorge. The Samaria Gorge is a very full day adventure which deserved it's very own post.
Day 3 was a quiet one. After our day down the Samaria Gorge we creaked down to breakfast and then went beach exploring. We headed out to Stavros Beach where Zorba the Greek was filmed directed by and starring Anthony Quinn. It was an interesting movie but the place is even ...
