Places I’ll Never Forget (Hopefully !) #3

10-04-17

These photographs are from my first visit to the island of Crete in 1990, can’t believe that’s 27 years ago !!!! All the images are from an Olympus OM2n film camera which I had just bought before the holiday. The film is Fujichrome 100.

One of the main reasons to visit Crete was to walk the Samaria Gorge (click the link if you would like to find out more)

It was quite rough going in some parts of the gorge.

End of The Line – Agia Roumeli

It was a scorching hot day, I was glad when we reached Agia Roumeli so we could have a drink and a bite to eat, not to mention resting my feet. We caught the ferry from here back to the transport. I’m not very good on boats especially the flat bottomed variety, the Mediterranean can get quite choppy and it did, but it was an experience not to be missed.
