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.
While on Crete, we visited Chania – a nice little town with a colorful harbor. We found a shop that sold baklava and split the pastry. I thought I had experienced baklava before … no. 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.
Throughout Rhodes, they use pebbles to create roads and paths. When it’s super hot out, they wet the pebbles and it’s supposed to have a cooling effect on your feet. I was in love with the pattern of this pebbled doorstoop! Kind of looks like a curly mustache.
Our yummy lunch – Greek salad and moussaka. Nom nom nom.
