Traveler's Story: Greece

Calimera, dear speakfreelians! How did you spend your summer? Lots of people are sure that seaside is the best place for a vacation. Yes, Crete has a beautiful sea. However, this island is attractive for many other reasons such as its caves, mountains, olives, raki, kind people, their lifestyle, specific driving and many other things. We started our trip from Heraklion, the capital of Crete, and visited many places there. So, we are ready to share our experience with you!
