Travel Diary: Crete Day 7 & 8

Travel Diary: Crete Day 7 & 8

When I publish this post I’ll finally be done with all the travel diaries from this summer! It took some time, but here is the travel diary from my two last days on the Greek island Crete, a trip I took in July with my boyfriends family. Hope you have enjoyed following my travels like this because I think it’s so fun to write these travel diaries – and be able to look back at them in a couple of years…

Travel Diary: Crete Day 6

Travel Diary: Crete Day 6

On our sixth day on Crete, our rental car “Sleepy Gonzales” had to work those hills again. Me, my boyfriend and his brother wanted to get out of the charter bubble for a while so we got up before sunrise to go on a road trip and explore the island beyond the tourist streets surrounding our hotel. We witnessed the sun rise above the hills as we drove by and stopped in the middle of nowhere where there was a sign that…

Travel Diary: Crete Day 5

Travel Diary: Crete Day 5

Let’s continue with the travel diaries from my Crete-trip! We spent most of our fifth day on Crete at Baja Beach Club. It was the place that I had thought was a luxurious hotel during our morning walk our second day, but it turns out it was a beach club where anyone could rent a lounger. Most of our travel party (you know, we were 12 people) was happy with staying at our hotel but after being there for two days straight some of…

Travel Diary: Crete Day 3 & 4

Travel Diary: Crete Day 3 & 4

Our third and fourth day on Crete pretty much looked like day one. We spent the days close to our hotel, swapping between laying on the beach and by the pool. I know that most full time working people think that’s an amazing way to spend the day, but I get restless way to quickly. I mean, I can lay on my back and read at home – when I travel I want to explore as much as I possibly can….

Travel Diary: Crete Day 2

Travel Diary: Crete Day 2

Our second day on Crete was filled with adventures from early morning to late evening. Me and my boyfriend shared our hotel room with two of his siblings and all of us woke up early and decided to take a morning walk since the breakfast didn’t open until 8 am. We started off by walking on the beach and got to a more luxurious area than the one we were staying in which had some really nice sunbeds and cabanas by the ocean…

Travel Diary: Crete Day 1

Travel Diary: Crete Day 1

I’m back in Sweden again after a week on the Greek island Crete. I was there with my boyfriend’s siblings and their families so we were a travel party with a total of 10 adults and 2 kids, which obviously comes with both pros and cons. Cozy to hang out everyone together since we all live in different parts of Sweden, but difficult to accommodate 12 peoples different wants, needs, and expectations. I’ve traveled in big groups before so I decided early on…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Kos & Bodrum 2002

Travel Throwback Thursday: Kos & Bodrum 2002

I have just landed on Crete, and what fits better than a Travel Throwback Thursday on the last time I was in Greece? In 2002 my family and my cousins family traveled together to the Greek island Kos. I was about 6 years old at the time so let’s say that my memories from this trip aren’t many but I do remember all the decorations we got in the drinks at the bar by the hotel pool – mostly because I brought…

Travel Throwback Thursday: Rhodes 1996

Travel Throwback Thursday: Rhodes 1996

I had to dig deep into the family photo albums to find photos to this week’s Travel Throwback Thursday! I was only one month old when I was on an airplane for the first time and traveled to relatives in northern Sweden, but my first time abroad was in October 1996 when I went to the Greek island Rhodes. As you can imagine, I have zero memories of this trip, but I often get reminded of it since I was eleven months old…
