I had been looking forward to this trip for all my life. I have always been fascinated with mysterious Crete and the ancient Minoans.

I was disapponted however because the only day I had off it rained miserably. I had wanted to visit the palace of Knossos but well into the 2 hour drive from Chania it was still raining furiously so I reluctantly turned around. Oh well I will have to visit it the next time I go to Greece.

Pros and Cons

    This all looks so different from the Chania I remember from more than 30 years ago! I'm sure Crete is still beautiful once you turn your back on some of the development - back then it was wonderful. leyle
