Our last stop on the European tour was the island of Crete – a much larger venture than I ever anticipated. We hung around Heraklion and the south of the island, venturing all the way to the south tip of the island, where we found another island: Spinalonga.

The island of Spinalonga has a rich history – from medieval forts to modern leper colony, now it lies empty save the tourists arriving from Plaka and Elounda daily. On a whim on the island of Crete we decided to explore the island. It turned out that we would never forget the experience as it ended in us getting drenched to our underwear.

Cretan weather, they say.
