WE WORK TO LIVE NOT LIVE TO WORK.
THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT THAT MONEY CAN BUY IS TO GET OUT THERE AND SEE THE WORLD.
I haven’t been as fortunate to travel loads, but when I was in Crete, I made the most of it.
From the moment we arrived to the moment when we drank the tap water in Xania airport [comes free] before leaving I was completely inlove with the island.
My advice – travel with your gut, off or just before the season, take loads of photos and record small videos of breath taking moments, because when you leave, it all seems like a dream.
Speak to locals, shop locally, drink loads of good vine and eat good food, have early mornings and long walks on a night in the city.
Don’t be afraid to get lost, loose your shoes and leave sand from the beach in your bags and pockets.
Have the craziest car journeys and climb the mountains that you are scared off.
“Baah” with the wild mountain sheep’s and they will “baah” back to you like you are having a conversation, stroke every stray cat/dog and feed your rooster leftovers to the cafe owners dog.
Crete was perfect. Four days of perfection. I will never forget the time spent there.
The gallery layout is a bit cheesy – sorry. I turned into a soft cheese myself whilst editing and writing this post.
