Photographer's Note

I went to Crete with my family for beach holidays. But in addition to beautiful beaches, Crete offers spectacular hiking opportunities, the most famous being the hike through the Samaria Gorge. Unfortunately, I have gave up on that aspect of the island completely. August is extremely hot and therefore it is not the best season for hiking. However, on the way to some beaches, I have occasionally passed truly breath taking canyons. As mentioned before, roads were most of the time so bad that I did not want to make extra stops in the middle of a road blocking potential traffic in both directions. In those difficult moments I really gave up on photography holding the steering wheel very tightly with both hands. This photo maybe does not show a very impressive view, but it was taken from a place where the road edge was secured with dedicated parking spaces available.

I must admit that it was first time that I was so poorly prepared for holidays. The reason for that was that I originally intended to go to Bulgaria, and even after I changed my booking to Crete, to the last day I was not sure whether Boris Johnson will cancel my holidays or not. Luckily, he did not. If I were better prepared, I would know that from this very parking spot there is a head trail to the picturesque Kourtaliotiko Gorge Waterfalls. One more reason to get back to Crete again.
