You must promise that you will not even consider the possibility of leaving out Crete when you’re planning your Greece itinerary.
All the reasons we travel are rolled into one here in Crete:
places so different to where we live;
friendly, warm and trustworthy people;
a place to have fun;
eating great food in spectacular settings;
a fresh food market;
a mother-son restaurant in the market converted from the father’s original butter shop.
