We were lucky enough to have two holiday weekends in May! I took my mom to the airport very early in the morning on Friday the 21st and Mark and I went back later that morning to catch our flight to Crete! We had a layover in Athens and finally arrived in the early evening at our beautiful hotel, The Amirandes, located approximately 15 minutes from the capital city of Heraklion. The Amirandes provided us a beautiful location for a relaxing island weekend!
Sunday we continued our theme of relaxing with another lunch by the pool and afternoon by the beach!! We even took a dip in the ocean, which was nice once I got over the immediate chill factor! We enjoyed our last breakfast outside on Monday morning and breathed in the delicious ocean air one last time before heading back to the airport for our flight home. It was great to have some time away on-island before going home to welcome our next set of visitors.
