We ended up in this little seaside village unexpectedly…
I don’t know if you remember, but in the last post I told you about the little situation we got ourselves into, which was : we missed our boat back ! We couldn’t pay our way out of Spinalonga island, and got stuck there for over an hour… we tried explaining this, but no other boat wanted to take us as there were some “safety measures” they needed to follow (???)
Finally someone with some sense told us, we could be waiting there for longer than that, because there was a storm coming, and they might be the last boat going back to shore for a while. They accepted us in, otherwise we could have stayed on leper island until who knows when ! Because yes, on top of everything else, as you can see on the pictures, the sky was moody and the clouds started being menacing.
So they took us to Plaka, as they were sailing there. They explained it wasn’t too far from Elounda, and we could probably catch a taxi from there to go back to our hotel. We replied “HAPPILY, GET US OUT OF HERE” 😂
It gave us the opportunity to visit this little village, it was really cute and the views on the island were quite breathtaking. We dried ourselves in a nice café, because yes, the rain caught to us while on the boat 😅 what a trip.Continue reading
