Our morning departure brought us to the island of Crete. The largest of the Greek islands, supposed birthplace of Zeus, and home to the "bottomless lake". We remain unconvinced that Crete is in the Mediterranean Sea and not the Aegean... those living on the island call it the 5th largest island in the Mediterranean.
We met our local guide Andonus and boarded a bus for an hour's drive through the hillside to reach the famous Palace of Knossos.
The Palace was home to King Minos and the excavation site is very impressive.
