Spinalonga

23 Jan

Having read the book ‘The Island’ by Victoria Hislop I was particularly keen to visit Spinalonga. Although I did enjoy my visit, I was participating in an organised tour and felt I did not have long enough to look around. Below are some of the photographs I took.

Agios Nikolaos, Crete

We spent a few hours in Agios Nikolaos, wandering through the narrow, bustling streets. I found the lake to be particularly picturesque.

When staying in Koutouloufari a wonderful little hillside village in Crete we decided to visit the capital Heraklion. We traveled to Heraklion by bus and spent a day exploring the city.

Rhodes Old Town

I also travelled to the old town of Rhodes, shown below. The old town is well worth a visit with charming, winding alley ways, beautiful architecture and bustling shops and cafés.

Lindos, Rhodes

8 Jun

Following the disassembly of my degree show I flew out to Rhodes for a short break with my mum and as always when travelling I took hundreds of photographs, some of which I have documented in the following slide shows. Whilst in Rhodes we stayed in Lindos a very pretty little town with narrow, twisting cobbled streets, white wash buildings and lots of donkeys! Towering above the town is the acropolis, which we visited on the first day.
