... its smaller and more laid back.
I have a friend who is living there so looked him up and spent a couple of nights in the cafes there catching up with him.
In between that took on a couple of walks. One was east around the coast to Sougia – well part way. Didn't feel I needed to see it again as that was where I got a bus back from after the Samaria gorge hike. Nice walk and not too hard although I ...
Kyle's 30th birthday turned out to be an incredible day. We started off with the hotel bringing him a cake and singing to him during breakfast.

But when the rest world zigs, we zag. In addition, we love to sleep! We got up around 8:30am and made the best use of the breakfast buffet possible making off with ham, cheese, bread and fruit enough for our mid-hike lunch. On the road by 9:45, the front desk was aghast at our late ...
