In my shoes

July 19 2011

back from an amazing journey in Crete: 11 days, 5 main cities, lot of beaches and towns only by public transports, hostel by hostel with a light backpack. can’t count how many buses and boats I’ve been taking. and, best of all, people I’ve met.

here’s a quick report:

  • day 1: plane from Milan to Hania. Agioi Apostoli and the Kalamaki beach
  • day 2: Gramvousa island and Balos beach, by boat
  • day 3: bus to Paleohora. sandy beach and pebble beach
  • day 4: Elafonisi beach and island, by boat
  • day 5: boat and taxi to Plakias, via Hora Sfakion. Plakias beach
  • day 6: hiking to Moni Preveli (Preveli monastery), then palm trees beach. way back by boat
  • day 7: bus to Rethymno. beach and old town
  • day 8: Panormo beach, by bus
  • day 9: bus to Iraklio. old town
  • day 10: Agios Nikolaos, beach and town, by bus. Kolokytha peninsula and Spinalonga island, by boat
  • day 11: Cnosso palace, by bus. historical museum and archaeological museum. plane to Milan

following is the initial plan, but of course, as any well-done plan, it has been adapted day by day:

sure, it’s been a tough journey: hostel owners were impressed by my willing to see as much as possible in so short time. sadly, I could not visit eastern coast, like the Vai beach. that could probably be the goal for another journey!
