How to Conquer Crete in a Week!

When it comes to planning travel, I tend to be the "fit it all in" gal instead of the "all-inclusive hotel" type. With that being said, I was eager to make a trip to Crete, but couldn't get myself to leave any stops off the list. So, here is a GO-GETTER'S GUIDE to Crete. My first and most important suggestion, rent a car! This may be an island but it has so much to see and do, you'll be lucky to check it all off the list in one trip. So strap in, enjoy the long rides and soak up all of Crete's beauty because lucky for you, there is so many ways to make a fulfilling trip here!
