Crete

We visited Crete on a press trip in the third week of October and were enchanted.  The weather was warm and sunny and we had the opportunity to see a lot of eastern Crete having flown into Heraklion.  We were centred at Agios Nikolaos which is a lovely town with beaches, a lake, smart shops, nice restaurants and heritage.   Crete is a lovely island  and indeed cradle of western civilisation with so much to see and learn from, and we long to return in the Spring for the famous spring flowers and all the fresh blossoms and colours of spring.
