I’ve just got back from a walking holiday in Crete; it’s beautiful, with rocky, craggy mountains, fragrant green forests, blue seas and amazing food.

I climbed Mount Gingilos, walked down Samaria Gorge, Aradena Gorge and Rouvos Forest (and gorge, there are a lot of gorges on Crete); snorkelled in the Libyan Gulf; ate way too much amazing food; and managed to consume quite a lot of the highly disturbing bottles of home-made raki which seemed to show up at every meal. It’s about 30% ethanol.

Also there were goats.
