Honeymoon Travel Guide: Crete & Rhodes, Greece

Honeymoon Travel Guide: Crete & Rhodes, Greece

Crete & Rhodes, Greece

Continuing with the recap of my Med Cruise adventure last year, we found ourselves next in lovely Crete. While it was stunning in its own right, I have to say I was slightly disappointed because I was expecting a landscape saturated with blue and white facades dotted with windmills. I was thinking of Santorini. So if that’s what you want to see when you go to Greece, make sure Santorini is on your list. 😉 That said, we still had a terrific time and I’m so glad we got to see what we did. Crete and Rhodes were fabulous (we also hit Athens which I’ll share next week) While in Crete, we scored some authentic tzatziki mix and more olive oil. Yum.

You must try it while in Greece – wow! We also did a good amount of shopping here – glitzy leather sandals, suede boots and handmade leather bracelets. Good day.
