    Crete - here we come

    ... The final part of our tour was a walk through the main city centre of Heraklion- with its old historic buildings, lovely Orthodox Church, fountains and modern day brand name shops! Lance and Liam managed to add to their haul with a couple of large Greek warriors. God knows how overweight we will be on our trip home. Finished the day with an evening spent at the back of the ship watching the sun go down, and eating from the buffet which for once wasn't too ...

    ... at night, the air was filled not with the sounds of commerce and groups of tourists, but with the authentic cacophony of Greek locals sitting around outside, making conversation as the day draws down. Kids, too. Kids in Greece stay out late. Surprisingly late. The result of a dearth of electronics and limited cable/internet I'm sure.

    ... 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 ...

    July 1, 1:58 PM -- Nida Plateau, Crete

    I tried to make it to the summit of Mount Ida, the highest point in Crete. I didn't make it.

    Woke up early today, knowing the hike up Mt Ida is at least eight hours round trip, plus 1.5 hours getting to the base, plus 1.5 hours to Matala, my next planned stop. The drive was scenic but uneventful. I made it to the lone taverna that represents base camp (really it's the only building for ...

    ... Maybe friends have abandoned us as well. I miss the Ontario North, the Canadian flag, and stupid comments in the media from Harper conservatives. I miss proper sized cars and fuel that costs $1.10. I miss refrigerating food that I enjoy eating. We all miss Maggie, our dog.



    Although it has been an amazing adventure, each of us counts down the days until we reach home, thinking of how it will be to return. Lately, we ...
