    Back to an educational day! Today we met our driver and our tour guide to head to Kronos place and head up to the birth place of Zeus. First to the palace. This is a Minoan palace that was 4000 years old. It was amazing to see the art, pottery that had been discovered. It was also impressive how peaceful (they had no warriors) of a people they were and also how advanced. They has piping and a septic system. We also got to sit ...

    ... olives are small and tasty.

    Last evening we went to dinner in Kritsa with the family. Kritsa is a small village up a hill from Elounda. When we met family at their beautiful home, Michaelis had just found a puppy that was cute and playful but abandoned in the road. We are told that abandoned pets are not uncommon given the economy here. The good news is we are not allowed to take a dog to ...

    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 ...

    ... special trip. Once on the ferry I left them alone.

    I'm going to take it easy tonight. It only hit me on the ferry ride back, but I did some great things on Crete. While planning this trip I had a vision in my head of cruising around the island on a motorcycle, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells, going where I wanted to go. I didn't get to accomplish everything I wanted, but for the most part I made it happen without loss of life or limb. Something to be proud of, I ...

    Crete: What an amazing island!

    ... places to eat. Lots of flat, easy walking areas nearby too. Streets are a little narrow, but that's ok if you make sure to listen out for cars! Pedestrian crossings are also very interesting in these Greek islands. Seems like there is no fixed rule for vehicles to stop at the crossing, not even if there are people waiting to cross. The trick is to have the guts to walk out into traffic... and then the cars stop. Otherwise you would seriously be waiting ...
