I’ve divided the pictures I took on Spinalonga island in three parts, because it was a lot for one or two posts. Anyway, we took the boat from Elounda : we love that city ! They have amazing restaurants, the area is gorgeous, and a very chill and classy nightlife.
Plus there are a few boat trips from there, so that’s fun ! As you can tell it was very cloudy, but let me tell you that even when it rained it was warm. I didn’t notice anyone minding that, we even swam in those sumptuous waters with that crazy weather.
It’s a picturesque spot, the views whether from inside the fortified citadel, or at the ramparts, are quite breathtaking. Fun fact, it is known as the Leper island… people who contracted that disease in Crete, even Greece, would be sent here to live away from the rest of the population. It’s pretty now, even if it’s in ruins, but you can definitely feel some bad, lonely and desperate vibes.
By the way, don’t pay attention to my boyfriend’s outfit (the green shorts… you will get familiar with those in the next posts); he’s the type of guy to pack one or two pants when going on vacay at the beach, because he believes we don’t need clothes for that sort of trip. Whereas I’m over here changing outfits daily 😂
