We checked out of our hotel in Nafolio at 9 - just in time to miss the hordes of people from the cruise ship that docked overnight - taxi drivers even slept in their cars to be first in line for the fares.

Stop in mountain village of Lagia for coffee and meet a german couple on their bikes, one of which is a recumbent bike! We buy them a cup of coffee while a rain storm passes. They are on a year's sabbatical from their teaching jobs. Started last September, cycled from home via Italy to Crete. Went home for the winter, then flew back to Crete to continue ...
