Congrats Nick. Back in the 1990s I had the pleasure of staying in Chania, a really lovely town, and then hiking the Samaria Gorge. Fantastic experience.

Thanks Jr! The Samaria gorge is something of an initiation from teens to adulthood here. Everybody passes  it when finishing high school for some reason.

Hoping to visit Crete some day---but more for the history.  I was unaware of the hiking opportunities until now!

"...bent like a marshmallow..."

I'm using that one, Nick.

And what a lovely place to call home. Crete is now on my life-list.

You can notice the pole on the right to be slightly bent and that was before the strong winds that picked up at night!

Btw notice the big rocks holding the tent down.

I also enjoyed learning more about hiking in Greece, and specifically Crete. I admit I did not know a lot about it beforehand. Thanks, Nick!
