This afternoon we bid Athens farewell and took the short trip to Crete this evening (45 minute flight). I didn’t realize how big Crete was; it’s 260 km long! We flew into Heraklion, not Chania. It’s very cool being able to see two different popular destinations in Greece.
This morning started out with a cup of coffee at Kudu “The Workshop” close to our apartment. My dad and I tried a flat white; it was strong but tasty! The barista felt bad for spilling some of my mom’s cappuccino on her saucer, so he gave us a free chocolate muffin to share. Can’t say we complained!
We walked down the Grand Promenade again after and ate a crepe before riding the metro to the airport. Sunday morning is a popular time in Athens, Greece! The streets were so crowded, and everyone was out enjoying the sun.
We flew out of Athens at 7 PM and took a cab to our Air BnB. It’s in a residential area close to the beach! We are exhausted and excited to see what’s in store for us on this island. xo ~ e.
