Hello Heraklion, bye bye Crete

March 13, 2019 akistemp

We spent almost a month in Crete and believe it or not it was not enough. We calculated we lost almost a week secluded in our camper for the harsh weather in Chania and Rethimno cities. But it was a great month, full of inspiring images and unforgettable encounters.

So here we are in Heraklion, the largest – but not the prettiest – city of the island. It still is a vivid medium size town which seems to never sleep. We spent two days here and dedicated them to friends and to Anastasia.

We spent the second day with a visit at the seafront Museum of National History – which was an exciting experience for our daughter. Late in the afternoon we visited – Vula for a second time – the Knossos archaeological site and we were delighted by the beauty of the architecture. Anastasia was not excited at all, we would say she was bored. At 9:00 pm we embarked on the Blue Star Ferries “Blue Horizon” boat to Piraeus.

Sincerely thank you Crete for the hospitality!
