I just watched a very interesting episide of Globetrekker with the first half dedicated to Cyprus and the second half to Crete.
They specifically looked at the Battle of Crete, visiting Souda and Maleme and then driving across the island on the route taken by the retreating allies to the south west coast. There were some very moving stories by elderly Cretans and veterans alike and it was good to hear the old Churcill quote "We will not say thereafter that the Greeks fight like heroes, but heroes fight like the Greeks!"
The programme then covered the coastal walk to Elafonisi (having to take some stretches by boat), which looked fantastic, and certainly an area I want to visit in the future, beautiful! Well worth a watch if you can catch the episode again in the next few weeks.
