Why I'd Return to Crete Tomorrow

Crete Region, Crete Region, Greece

Flag
There are so many Islands in Greece, each different than the other, and some more popular than others. I was flying out of Thessaloniki and was offered a 26 hour stopover in Crete. It looked small and sweet, and was rated well online.

We never say no to seeing new places, so my friend and I jumped on the opportunity. I saw no big hotel chain, so opted for the cheap hotel in the great neighborhood. The hotel, cheap as it was, offered the most outstanding views.

The beaches were pretty and quiet, and the Greece sunsets never ever disappoint.

Take me back to Crete, YESTERDAY!
