[Aug.2009] We were going to join a tour to go to the west end of the island of Crete, Greece but because the company made a mistake, we had to join a tour to Samaria Gorge.
First we moved to the south side of the island and took a ferry.
The landscape of the south coast was wilder.
We got off at the entrance of Samaria Gorge, whose the narrowest point is only 3 metres and the cliff on the both sides are 700 metres high.
If you walk all the way it is 16 kilometres, and a lot of serious walkers were walking there.
We spent about one hour to enjoy the atmosphere and went back to the beach.
The water there was even cleaner.
