Crete, Greece

Crete was unlike anything we expected. We didn’t get the chance to go see the beautiful white buildings in Santorini (sadly), but we did get to see the incredible culture of Crete, Greece.

We visited Chania Old Town. The buildings looked incredibly old which we loved. The streets were lined with all sorts of shops and vendors. So many people were selling amazing things. One of the vendors we met was a lady from Africa that had visited Crete many years back and decided to move there. How cool! Our favorite shop was a honey shop. The owner brought us through the store and let us try samples of honey while explaining how it is made. We left with a few items. 🙂

Other than visit Old Town, we spent our days at the beach and exploring the area. Our hotel was near the beach, so we spent a couple of days laying out under the sun and swimming in the crystal clear, wave-free, water. We visited in October, and the weather was still amazing. The beaches were very empty so it was definitely a relaxing vacation for us!

We tried the Gyros (yum). They put french fries on them which was a little weird though.

We got a pedicure from the locals fish. Yikes! This was hilarious. We kept walking past the stores (there were so many of them) and debating on whether we wanted to try it. We knew if we did, we would definitely never forget it. When in Rome Greece, right? How many people actually get the chance to do this? It tickled and was so weird, but we got a good laugh out of it! And some pretty soft feet, if I do say so myself.

Overall, it was an experience we will never forget.
