So Little Time And So Much To See ...

23 June 2009 - 05:41 PM

We're only in Crete for a week .. starting from 12th July. Staying at the Golden Bay Apartments in Gournes.

We do want to explore a little but not really sure we can afford a car as we are on a bit of a budget ... i.e. I am proving to my husband that we can actually afford, not only to purchase a holiday, but have enough to spend on it too .. (else this might be my last one for a few years).

I've been to Knossos before, so not too worried about missing that .. but I would dearly love to go to a beautiful beach .. in particular Elofonisi - but would that be practical without a car? I am presuming that we would have to take two busses at least to get there, as I doubt First Choice would run an excursion. Also, has anyone been to Chrissi Island?

.. And It's Hello From Me !

It's 3 weeks till we fly into Heraklion Airport .. three LONG, LONG weeks ..though, if you're anything like me, you love the anticipation almost (but not quite) as much as the holiday!

Seriously didn't think we would be able to afford a holiday this year, but I got the most fantastic deal a few weeks ago. I am now dreaming of my return to Greece in the sure knowledge that it will be a reality pretty soon.

I love the Greek islands ... not that I've been to many ... Zante, Kefalonia, Thassos, Skiathos, Crete, Rhodes and Ithaca ... loads more to visit ! I can't pin point what it is I love about Greece, but the friendliness of the people, the sun warmed smells of the islands and the beautiful clean sea go a long way to ensure my love abides.

So, for now ... HI .. from me !
