#5 Heraklion Crete


We decided to rent a car again. This time with our English friends from the boat.

Our nightly dinner time on the boat was definatly a highlight. Not only was the food great, but the company was great as well. We were seated with 2 other couples.
Dorothy and Geoff from New York, who were also on their honeymoon,
and Laurelle and James from England.
We had so much fun talking each night. It was the best!

Back in Crete we decided to visit the Knossos Palace. Its 4 thousand years old, and the oldest known civilization in the western world.

It was really hot, but everything was so amazing, except for that Sir Arthur Evans guy...

I guess he was one of the original archeologists in the 1900s, and decided to make some renovations... Notice the red and black pillars and the freshly painted fresco's. Seems totally out of place.

We then drove around the city, and back to the port where we had ice cream by the water.


Basically our honeymoon was amazing!! Everything was perfect! We loved every port, some more then others. We loved the boat, and the food, and our new friends. and we had so so much fun with each other, and love being married. It was the BEST ever!!
