Clean Monday Volta

On Clean Monday we drove up to Omalos. The tavernas were all packed and there were plenty of families out on the plain flying their kites. We decided to go up to the Kallergi refuge (at 1,680m) in search of snow. Here's a picture taken on the road up to the refuge http://www.livingincrete.net/mount9...

Weather in Chania has been bright today, but black clouds are just starting to come over. We could be in for some rain, but no snow or ice forecast ;)

An interesting read Mick. What struck me, apart from the sad loss of lives, is that it was a "15 hour journey (to Elaphonissi) on horseback from Canea over roads covered with snow." How really isolated parts of Crete used to be.

Glad you posted the link to your snow pics Jean - I'd just been searching for them and couldn't find them.

I agree with Filippos, i.e. I'm not 100% sure but I haven't seen any direct flights Dublin/Crete either. Visitors who have flown from Dublin before have booked via Gatwick (Ryanair Dublin/Gatwick is just over £60 return) to Chania. There are also BA flights Dublin/Manchester/Heraklion from £220 retu...
