Today we had a two hour drive along the highway to Knossos, an archeological site from the Minoan age. It was a Minoan palace that was nearly 4000 years old. It was home to a king who asked Apollo for a bull to sacrifice to honour Apollo. The bull was so beautiful though that the king sacrificed another one,which made Apollo angry. He then made the queen fall in love with the bull, which produced the Minotaur, a half human, half bull, which lived on human blood. ...

... my favourite Greek food. We found out that our boat trip to Santorini tomorrow which should leave from Rethymon actually goes from Heraklion, which is a couple of hours away. The ferry company had forgot to tell us about this change! We went back to the villa for an early night as we have to get up early in the ...
