... Mt Ida 2456 m ) that are close to the coast so there are no rivers or lakes on the island. We had a long drive to Knossos over 2 hours and stopped at a Taverna on the way.

Kyle's 30th birthday turned out to be an incredible day. We started off with the hotel bringing him a cake and singing to him during breakfast.
