Crete Island. If you’ve been here, you want to come back. Maybe forever, like me. Friends ask me all the time “Why Crete?” Well, for a South Carolina sandlapper of the 60s like me, there are 1000 reasons. I tend to share a lot of them here on Argo Travel News. Today, I thought some more Instagram bliss appropriate. So, here goes.
I typed #CreteIsland and here’s what came up. I swear, it wasn’t me.
Rethymno. What an amazing little town on the north coast of Crete. The place sits smack in the middle of some of the island’s most interesting sites, sounds, tastes, and spiritual amazement. Here is a taste.
Merry Christmas from the Royal Sun Hotel in Chania. Yeah, Christmas on Crete is out of this world, calm, lovely, and rejuvenating. You should come.
What can I say? If you don’t understand, I’ll never be able to explain. We live here.
Reason number 1. God was born and still lives here. He likes to create smiles.
Falasarna Beach is here.
They don’t have this in Florida or the Bahamas.
It’s other places where people “lose it” – Here on Crete people “find it” ….
In the Garden of Eden, it is only Winter when you want it to be.
If you wanted, you could film either Tarzan or the Creature from the Black Lagoon here. And then go to Chania and make a 007 Bond movie.
On Crete 1,000 years is a little while ago. As in, the Bible was written tomorrow.
Yeah, it’s happening right now.
The seas here are the color of my favorite crayon when I was a child. Everywhere, not just in some places.
Reason number 244, any 20-something guy who does not move here is an idiot. Even my Mihaela says so.
Reason number 9 for moving to Crete forever. There are absolutely no dangerous snakes back in those bushes. Crete does not have any deadly creatures. This is important for visually challenged people who are scared of snakes.
I tell people Crete is several continents in one. Few believe me until they explore some. Here is Arizona slash Mongolia.
We have some really beautiful places to shop too. Agios Nikolaos is one.
Somebody stop me.
Hey! My wife is here!
