Crete

A first trip to Crete… and what a magical place. Chania is the perfect Mediterranean port. Where else would you walk around the harbour or an old town and actually think that EVERY restaurant deserved a visit; so friendly, and the ones we ate in served some of the best holiday food ever.

Springtime, of course, produced an abundance of wild flowers, and, while not a specific reason for our holiday, the presence of two amateur botanists in our group, whose “Springtime in Crete” holiday booked for the previous week had been cancelled due to volcanic ash, and their excited cries every time they found a new and rare flower, soon had us all appreciating the wonders that surrounded us.
