Hello and welcome to my first trip-report of Greece The title might be a bit misleading, since it doesn't cover the whole country (that would be too epic) but only Athens and the Island of Crete. But I have a feeling that I will return there some day and cover another part of Greece and so on.
So I spent my summer holidays in Greece, doing a 2 weeks-long tour of Crete and Athens. It was a very wise choice, as Greece proved to be a positive surprise, and I left with the distinct feeling of money well spent. It was all planed ahead by myself, with some help from Evil78 (thanks :cheers: ). Everything worked well, the stories about Greeks being lazy, unreliable and in love with tax evasion being dismissed one by one. Seriously, people lamenting about Greece being in the EU should shut up. Especially if they are from Romania.
The trip involved a flight from Bucharest to Athens, a boat ride from Piraeus to Heraklion, in Crete, a grand tour of the island by car, a flight back from Heraklion to Athens and finally a flight back to Bucharest.
This is the trip through Crete (about 850 km travelled):
And the plan looks more or less like this:
2. Sailing to Crete
3. Heraklion & Knossos
4. Agios Nikolaos
7. Agia Galini & Agios Pavlos
10. Samaria National Park
Also, since I travelled by car on Crete, there are many pictures of roads and landscapes between the points above. I'll start posting more comments and pictures tomorrow. As always, your feedback is appreciated
