Weekly Photo Challenge – Adventure in Crete

This week, share a photo that says “adventure.” It could be an image of someone setting off on an epic journey, a photo you took on an adventure of your own, or something more metaphoric that represents a personal or psychological adventure.

The bf and I spent two amazing weeks on the beautiful island of Crete in April this year. Gorge walking was high on our list but unfortunately the popular Samaria Gorge was not open yet as we visited in off season. Instead we chose to hike the lesser known Avlaki Gorge in the Chania prefecture which was a great adventure.

Walking along the dried out river bed we were surprised to find a fjord at the end of the gorge with crystal clear, turquoise waters. We brought some wine and food with us so we had a very romantic picnic at this former small harbour before we braved the steep hike uphill on the way back.
