As the song says, "Life can be so sweet on the sunny side of the street" - so I always try to walk on the sunny side!
We visited Knossos a number of years ago and really enjoyed it.
My late husband and I had bought tickets and reserved lodgings for a vacation in Crete that we were to take in the fall of 2014 - then he became ill and we were in chemo instead. It is lovely to look at your pictures of the places that he especially wanted to go. All I wanted to do was sit on a terrace overlooking an olive grove :-)Thank you for sharing!
Sending you hugs xx
