It is my over-the-hump period in Crete, Greece, and I think I may have just been to the best travel destination here.
“Paradise” is such an overused travel word so I try to steer clear from it, but I think I just found one that truly and completely justifies me using it this time.
I mean, look at that!!! It’s just Oh-My-God so pretty.
If you are ever here in Crete, I highly recommend you taking the ferry ride to Gramvousa and Balos.
Get to the Northwestern end of Crete going towards Kissamos. Follow the Port. Get on the ferry. It will first take you to Gramvousa.
Don’t be a wimp. 😀 Ascend to the Kastelli (Castle). You won’t regret it. You will see a most beautiful overlooking view of the island.
It is a piece of Heaven on Earth.
After Gramvousa, the express will continue to Balos. Here is a little tease of Balos…
Next post I’ll explore more on Balos …
I still have another 6 months here in Greece, but I really think Gramvousa and Balos will be THE meter against the rests of my travel plans here in Crete.
THE SOPHOMORE SLUMP RECOMMENDS:
Music: On A Mission by Katy B. – Move over dance divas, Katy B. is on a mission to be the best Dance album of the decade in my book by far.
Movie: Inglorious Basterds – Who wouldn’t include a Quentin Tarantino film on their list of recommendations, eh? See also Django Unchained.
