Crete, Greece: I left my heart.

Posted on Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Crete, Greece: Breakfast in Agia Roumeli

Posted on Tuesday, December 3, 2013

The wind blew fiercely last night. Usually, the air is so calm (which I find surprising being in the middle of the sea), but when it kicks up, it does so with such ferocity that I feel unsettled and scared. This morning, the power is out…

Crete, Greece: Hans and the Key

Posted on Saturday, November 30, 2013

Crete, Greece: Matala, Days 8,9 &10

Posted on Monday, November 18, 2013

Our last days together seem to be to be one long day in retrospect. Eating, reading, sleeping, drinking, dancing, laughing, rinse, repeat. Max is leaving in a couple days and already I miss him preemptively. In between laughs we’ve had some serious conversations and he’s…

Crete, Greece: Matala: Days 5,6 & 7

Posted on Friday, November 15, 2013

On a wall at the edge of Matala’s beach there is a mural that says: “Today is life. Tomorrow never comes.” That summarizes how it feels to be here. These days with Max have a dreamlike quality to them where one day bleeds into the next with no marker of time except the evening sunset…

Crete, Greece: Day 4, Plakias to Matala

Posted on Thursday, November 7, 2013

While the Elvis songs were outstanding, the amount of wine consumed had my head spinning today. Our goal is to get to Matala. The “how” is unclear. Figuring it out entails a lot of head holding on my part with deep sighs and a wish that teleportation…
