... on Crete. It's a brief reprieve to what's coming. What stands between us and the sea is a 12%25 grade of maybe 30 switchbacks that wind their way all the way to, ***** ass Fackeon. It's a view to die for and if you're not careful you might. The Cretans are known for their rebelliousness and "don't give a ****" attitude.

... Crete is massive!
So anyway, we head towards the bus station after breakfast and getting ready and jump on a bus towards Agios Nikolaos where we had to change buses. We buy our tickets to Istron and wait 40minutes or so for our bus to arrive. We see it arrive, and then take off straight away without anybody getting on. We immediately look at one another and hope that we didn’t just miss our bus, as the next one didn’t come for another hour. Aaron paces ...
