Travelling to somewhere new allows you to see a place for the very first time, no complacency, no inherent misgivings, just the ability to see it for what it is. Our latest adventure took us to the Greek island of Crete, the largest of the 227 scattered around the Aegean and Ionian seas.
It didn’t take long before we discovered that the Cretians thrive on chaos, from their road manners to their visibly eccentric building style, heavily graffitied surfaces to abandoned vehicles wherever you look. But, the chaos brings with it, a certain level of relaxed order, there’s a silent rhythm here that if you let it, will immerse you and have you captivated.
The chaos soon becomes invisible and out of it, a beauty that can be felt everywhere you go, bakers, butchers, restaurants, doctors, all have a way of making you welcome here, let the soft warm winds and rustling of olive trees free your prisoned spirit and embrace the chaos, there’s not many places in the world that remain quite so free.
