A Word a Week Photo Challenge – Island

It seems I preempted this week’s challenge when I published my post on Santorini a couple of weeks ago. This weeks Word a Week Photo Challenge set by Sue over at A Word In Your Ear is ‘Island.’

So, I thought I’d take you to another beautiful Greek island, Crete. We spent 3 weeks there a few years ago staying in a wonderful villa with its own pool and views over the ocean. Many a pleasant evening was spent eating dinner on the balcony of my room, drinking the local red wine or the lethal Greek Metaxa, as the sun set casting a pink glow over the town below.

Yet another place I would love to go back to.

  1. Thanks for the memory nudge. I went to Crete about 10 years ago and stayed at Agios Nicolaos, it was wonderful. After many visits to the Greek Islands I have even developed a taste for the Metaxa!

    • Metaxa is definately an acquired taste but yes, I did acquire it ;-) We stayed at Hersonissos and had friends who ran a bar in Agios Nikolaos. Pity they no longer run it :-(

  2. I was in Crete in 2004. I loved every minute of it. Lovely photos – thanks for the reminder of my time there.
