Second article from my trip to Crete. It’s a little weird though to share my holidays pictures as the weather is really bad right now!
Anyway, I went on this trip with my whole family (little brothers, mother and step father) and it was actually for the first time ever and I’m 24. But as they say, better late than never!
We took those pictures in a beautiful village that we visited on our third day. It was right after we went to the beach so I needed to put on some make up and I was very happy to have my little assistant (see picture below) to help me do it!
It was really fun shooting this outfit as the photos were taken by my mom and one of my little brother. This post is definitely a big family affair!
If you happen to go to Crete I really advice you to go discover this lovely village that is Polyrrinia.
It’s an ancient city in the west of Crete (close to Kissamos) who was built in around 1100 BC on a hilltop. It is really worth visiting for its traditional atmosphere, for the ruins of the acropolis and for its breathtaking view on the hills and the sea.
We didn’t see a lot of tourists there and actually we didn’t see a lot of people at all! It was so nice to just walk down those quiet streets and enjoy a peaceful moment while watching the hills!
Even if we feel like the city has been deserted, there is still a craft store down the hill. The man who owns it designs all his creations from olive wood (see bellow). When you come in the shop, he offers you a glass of raki! He was really nice he also offered us some peanuts and he even went to his garden to cut us some cactus fruits (actually called prickly pear). It was delicious!
