    Cool pool and great breakfast make Galaxy Hotel stand out.

    Hotel room itself was good, but the stars here are the large, unique swimming pool with water spouts and a plexiglass catwalk, plus the breakfast was also really excellent. The service was also great, both in the restaurant and at the front desk / bellman area.

    Fourth of July In Crete with no fire works :( Today we drove from Chania to Heraklion to our new hotel. The drive took two hour through some beautiful country side that reminded us of California, but without all of the people. Once we got into Heraklion we saw a man pull off a no sign and start yelling at another man in Greek (referendum vote is …

    Farewell to Crete

    The first few days back in Elounda were an opportunity to relax, and on Thursday we spent the day by the beach, Friday by the pool. Friday evening we jumped on the bus to Agios Nikolaos to meet Laura and her girlfriend for drinks, dinner and then some more drinks and was our only late night 'party night' of the whole three weeks. Afraid of the boredom setting in we arranged to hire a car for Sunday and Monday and booked a nights accommodation on Sunday on the ...

    We were welcomed to our Olympos accommodation as members of the family and almost begged to return next year: "we build this place for people like you, not. Just any people, special people". We're thrilled we stayed there at night as no one does really, and in the day, it's a little coach party territory so we were pleased to see it late evening and early morning (before 10), without the hoards. That said, ...

    Crete - here we come

    Crete - never been here before. So it was with much anticipation that we set off on our tour. Not as charming as Santorini, parts of it a bit like a non graffitied, tidier version of Athens - not bad but not really amazing either. Their economy is very strong and they could survive independently from the rest of Greece. First stop was the Palace of Knossos. Interesting. Our tour guide Lena was good. She glossed over a lot of the dates and figures and just ...

    ... waters have lost their magic.

    Took a taxi from the port to Thira, the nearest big city. Walked around, got a (overpriced) latte in a cafe on the cliff. Went to the Catholic church and Dominican monastery. Ho hum.

    Waiting for the bus back to the port I made friends with a couple of Californians, a guy and a girl. They were headed to Naxos too. The guy was nice (a software engineering hobbyist) but the girl seemed a bit aloof and gave the impression I was an imposition ...
