Most Southern Town in Europe

What more mountains!

sunny 29 °C

Thursday morning and an early start, well for one of us anyway. Took some early morning photos of the resort before anybody was about. Then after another superb breakfast we set off for Ierapetra, the most southerly European town not only famous for that but also the biggest expanse of greenhouses you have ever seen in your life. Checked out the old town and the fortress and had coffee with a load of old Greek locals onviously putting the world to rights. Think they may also have been taking the p**s out of my favourite holiday shirt! The drive back took us through the centre of greenhouse land and up into the mountains past the reservoir. Some glorious scenery and the whole place smells like a herb garden because of the abundance of wild thyme growing everywhere. Loads of kodak moments, some scary bends in the road and the peugeot 107 automatic in pillar box red absolutely clueless as to what gear it should be selecting! Back to the resort for Pitta stuffed with herbs, with Tzatziki and olive bread with olive and tomato tapenade, does it get any better? A good old laze on a sunbed on the pool terrace and a dip in the pool followed by a ride in the funicular elevator and a lift from reception to our room in the back of a golf buggy. Time for a snooze before getting ready for dinner.20130620_054246.jpg
