Chania, Crete, Greece, 13/6-2012
Sailing distance made: 8399 nautical miles
From the "Big Blue Island" -Amorgos, we continue our voyage...
... to Folegandros, a small island (about 32 square kilometres) with a totally calm and relaxed atmosphere.
There are almost no tourists here, we just meet some few hikers while walking up the hill to Chora, the "capital" of the island.
Chora is built on the edge of a 200-metre high cliff and from here you have a stunning view over the Mediterranean Sea.
The sailing continues further west to Milos island.
Here, at the east coast of the island, we anchor in a small bay with crystal clear water. Our zodiac need some maintance, when this is done it is just a "must" to give the under water world a visit... :)
.One night in the small bay of Milos and we set sails again...
4 am and we are already on our way south...
About 80 nautical miles or 16 hours later, we arrive the old harbour of Chania in Crete. The old buildings are shining in the sunset light and the golden scenery gives us a picturesque welcome.
Surrounded by high mountains (up to 2456 m) and really deep waters (thousands of meters not too far from shore)... a mountain loving sea creature as me truly look forward to coming adventures... ;)
