I spent about a week and a half in Crete and Santorini. While in Crete, I stayed near Hersonissos, on the eastern part of Island. Since most of it was fairly inaccessible by foot, I instead managed to put over 600 miles on my car in 7 days. Of course, even taking a quick drive around most of the island would prove an impossible feat, since not only is the island absolutely enormous, but there are parts of the south coast that are completely inaccessible during the fall and winter seasons due to rain and snow and other areas that are only accessible by boat year round. That didn’t stop me from driving all around the Lassithi Plateau near where I was staying, as well as wandering around Heraklion and Chania, as well as an ancient cave and the Minoan ruins at Knossos Palace.
Here are some of my favorite photos from these travels.
