Travel Blogs from Crete
... drove to Makryolagios, which I have to say is one of the most attractive beaches we've seen here. Gorgeous waters, sand, sand and more sand and lots of places to eat and drink. The perfect place to wind down before we return to Elounda and pack. Three weeks has raced by but we have loved our time away and also relished the opportunity to spend three weeks in each other's company and (Friday aside) only each other's.

How married couples are given houses by their parents, what age they marry, pregnancy out of wedlock is a precious baby and many Cretian brides walk down the aisle in their white dress ...
Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor (and we read the awful ones first right?) I arrived expecting a battle axe to greet us, akin to Hattie Jakes' character in Carry on Abroad; large, loud and taking no nonsense from her guests or her beaten-down husband. Well Maria is large, kinda width-wise but as short as the little Krankie but not as, well, cranky as I expected. You can see how some people wouldn't warm to her but we notched up the charm a few points and I think ...
