As promised here it is!

Let's visit Crete, the largest and most populous of the Greek islands,

Crete, Greece's largest island, is known for its varied terrain, which ranges from fine-sand beaches at Elafonisi to the White Mountains. Mt. Ida, the tallest of the range, is home to the Ideon Cave, which was the birthplace of Zeus, according to Greek mythology. The capital, Heraklion, is home to the renowned Heraklion Archaeological Museum, housing Minoan artifacts, and Knossos, a Bronze Age settlement.

The island is mostly mountainous, and its character is defined by a high mountain range crossing from west to east; it includes Crete's highest point, Mount Ida, and the range of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) with 30 summits above Protected content in altitude and the Samaria Gorge, a World Biosphere Reserve. Crete forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece, while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry and music). The Nikos Kazantzakis airport at Heraklion and the Daskalogiannis airport at Chania serve international travelers. The palace of Knossos, a Bronze Age settlement and ancient Minoan city, lies in Heraklion in Crete.

We are ready for this Trip. Two of the members are already there and having their hobbies of scuba diving, swimming and City trotting.
