So I am planning my next trip! This time I am going later in the year so I can see what Crete is like outside of the main season. As the hotel I usually stay in is closed I am having to look up hotels for the first time in years. It’s surprisingly hard even though I know the town well.
There are also no direct flights so I am being “forced” to spend a few days in Athens! I could get connecting flights but I want to go to the Parthenon again!
I was looking forward to seeing Chania airport as I hear the refurbishment is nearly finished but it looks like the best flight are going to be into Heraklion. Oh well, I’ll have to see it next time!
What I am looking forward to is seeing Rethymno as a “real” town with few tourists and mainly people who actually live there. I am also hoping to be able to socialise with the friends who are usually working in the hotel when I am there in the summer.
I know some of my friends socialise in the cafes and restaurants along the sea front and I am looking forward to mingling with local people. Mind you, I’d better go and learn a lot more Greek before I go!
See you soon.
