#29 – A Visual Tour of Crete

Evening everyone!

I realise it’s been quite awhile since I last posted here on my blog, but let me change that!

The past few weeks have been incredibly busy for me, and I’m excited that Showzee will alpha launch in the next few weeks (more details to come).

But I’ve also just returned from a 2 week trip to Crete – Greece’s largest and most diverse island. The beaches, historic sites and weather were truly remarkable and lived up to all my expectations.

So here are a selection of the photos I took on this trip to give you a visual overview of the beautiful island of Crete:
