    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 …

    ... of thousands of years old coins. Investment banker is my guess. Iraklion is a dirty busy little port city. But don't let her looks fool you. There's lots to do, see and appreciate. It's been around since the Neolithic age, some 10,000 years. A layer cake of time and surprise. We enjoy a stone-oven baked pizza watching the traffic and people. Motor bikes blur by, seldom a helmet but often a passenger on board. Buses jammed with people. Lives ...

    ... courts, bumper cars, and skating rinks. It's a little obnoxious... but fun. We were expected to have warm and sunny weather all the way to the Greek Islands. Our first day was a "Sea Day" which was spent cruising down the Italian coast. That morning we woke to the ship passing through a relatively small canal in between the Italian island of Sicily and the toe on the boot of Italy's mainland. What a sight to see in the morning! Rob and I relaxed by the pool in the sun eating ...

    We got our first Greek sleep in whilst the boat docked in Crete, got up in time to have waffles for breakfast before heading up to the top deck to see what everyone else was doing. Whilst up on the deck sunbathing Sean gets roped in to represent NZ in the Mr Olympia competition, after a series of competitions including muscle flexing and kissing as many girls in 30 seconds it ends with racing back to our cabin and dressing as a female (pic attached), ...
