I've been back from Greece – Crete, just under two months now, and golly was it dreamy.
Think turquoise waters, excessive amounts of sunbathing, and even more excessive amounts of food consumed .. good food, really good food! Days spent snorkelling in the bay and getting lost in a good novel, trips to Elounda – our closest town, being an old fishing harbour full of cute shops seafront restaurants and fishing boats. It was heavenly!
We took a boat trip to a nearby island: Spinalonga, where the lepers of Crete were taken, which was interesting, I think it's always good to learn a little of the history from the local area.
Our resort was to die for, a little remote and located at the bottom of a hill so taxi's were our go-to when leaving the resort, but for a relaxing 5* hol, it was perfect, to top it off it had its own private bay/beach… and a lot of stray cats!!
I've attached a few pics below 🙂
