    Hi I am off to Crete next week. Last went over 15 years ago. We have back packed around Greece over 25 years ago too. We are on a flight only trip and plan to get a ferry to Santorini and maybe a couple of the other islands. We land at midnight so any tips for cheap accomodation in Heraklion and ferry advice would be very welcome. We have 1 week only so need to be organised.

    Wow, I wish I had, but unfortunately I have never been to Crete. It looks so beautiful, the landscape, the animals roaming free, the super clear water. I want to go now!

    Wow, we’ve never been to Crete, but would dearly love to now. Especially to take a tour like yours. You’ll certainly appreciate food and drink even more after a good hike.

    Stunning photographs! And I love those goats. That’s quite a life they have going for them, eh?

    Wow, great shots Valen!

    The food in Greece is delicious and our favorite meal was the time a super nice waiter offered to choose the food for us. Seeing that Micki and the kids are vegetarian we were worried there would be too many meat dishes but he knew our situation and brought out a dozen small dishes that we quickly devoured.

    The kids would be all over that cheese though.

    BTW, your pictures of the goats are awesome!

      Thank you, Charles! I so agree about the food…I liked it much better than the food in Italy where I currently am.

    Those goats look so cute and cuddly! I miss the food in Greece. Never been to Crete though. Too bad.

    Looks beautiful Val! I think goats are adorable, so especially love those photos. And that water is so amazingly clear. Looks like a lovely island to visit!
