When I started this I wasn’t sure if I would actually do it at all and I definitely wasn’t sure I would do it every day but I did not intend to leave it this long.
I fund it difficult to blog when I was in Crete due to the heat, exhaustion, lack of Wi-Fi where I stayed and I managed to develop a cold!
I still enjoyed every second of my holiday as I was in Crete and I can think of nowhere I would rather be but it was definitely not the best holiday I have ever had.
I will go into more details another day but I wanted to come back and start this blog again.
Crete is amazing, I relax as soon as I arrive. The drive from the airport, either one, gives me time to relax, realise it is not a dream, I am really back, and start to enjoy myself.
The main “New” national highway run along the North coast of Crete. If you arrive at Heraklion airport,as I did this time, you get straight onto the national road and it is only an hour drive to Rethymno, which is where I stay. The road goes around Heraklion first and then inland before heading back to the sea again. If you arrive in daylight, it is a pleasant drive with some amazing views. If you have heard horror stories about driving in Greece, don’t worry as the main road is pretty easy to drive on, just stay well over to the right and allow drivers in a hurry to pass you.
