Because we had so much time left at the end of our trip through Greece, we went to Crete. It was a great idea, i didn't want to have missed it. Everything is wonderful here. The land, monuments and also the people, who are exremely friendly and seem to always be relaxed. Especially the village of Matala, with it's Hippie caves, was very interesting, which were once tombs and are now under archeological protection. I can only recommend everybody to go to this nice island!
