Crete: An Unexpected Adventure
Crete was my unexpected adventure for several reasons. It was the first time I visited a place that required a car to get around and the first time I ever stayed somewhere that wasn’t a major city (shocking, I know). This was by design, as I was specifically looking for something less urban and more rustic than my usual travel style. It was also a place where pre-planning could only get you so far, thanks to skimpy Google Maps coverage and guidebooks light on info outside of a handful of major towns and beaches. I quickly learned that when your feet hit the ground you’ll be tempted to throw your “itinerary” out the window like yesterday’s bath water and go into full-blown explorer mode (take that type-A personality!). And while all this may not be something new for some of my fellow travelers, it was an exciting first for me. Here is how we spent 3 glorious days on this charming and unsung Greek island.
