Travel Blog Part 19 - Crete

Written on: Wednesday February 21st, 2007

A journal entry from: EURO5

Crete was a place we'd planned to spend more than a couple of days in, due mostly to the fact that a friend of mine had family that lived there. When that fell through Crete was used as nothing more than a platform to get back to the mainland. Through some sly detective work we found some obscure Czech airline that flew from Heraklion, Crete to Prague at 4am for a drastically reduced price, so we jumped on it.

Our plan was to spend a day in Crete driving around the island, or at least parts of it, and drop off our rented car at the airport when we were ready to head out. We booked a rental car and everything only to find out the car was never returned so we had a full day in Crete with no accomodations and only a small little village to wander around for about 20 hours. We made due by some vacant poolside and a 24-hour McDonalds in Heraklion. Would have been cool to spend more time here and really get to know the place. Ah well, there's always next time...
