My Crete in pictures. Part I

The first of many shots from the magical island of Crete, Greece's most populous isle. A pearl in the crystalline Mediterranean, Crete was an unforgettable experience for so many different reasons. The delicious food, the sinuous mountain roads that snake down to the rocky coastline and sandy beaches below, palm-fringed river deltas, Raki and the hospitable Cretans that live and dance under the sun...all will forever remain dear to my heart. Efharistoomay Κρήτη, Thank you Crete !
