Crete - Holiday

Finally we managed to go on holiday! Last minute booking, late in the year, wanted to go somewhere warm. Crete is about as far South we could go but still being in Europe, and trying somewhere new. Ended up about 20 mins from Xania in a villa in a small mountain village. Perfect for us, 3 village tavernas, little shop, Souda with bigger shops 5 mins away and beaches 10 min drive away. Would definitely recommend the area to other people. Lots of great walks and views of the White Mountains from the village.
The picture shows a rock we came across whilst walking up a gorge. Again to scale it off there I am below it!!!
