Day 13: Movin' On!

Ferry to Heraklion

View Greece with William on empaustian's travel map.

Today was a day of goodbyes. Our sweet hosts at Acropole Sunrise wished us good tidings and our cook, Tina, gave us both a hug and a kiss on each cheek.

We spent the majority of our day riding a bus across the island and then taxi’d the rest of the way with a couple from Columbia who worked at Goldman Sachs. We talked with them for a while and compared trip itineraries, as they had just come from Crete- our next stop.
We sat at an internet cafe at the port for a while and then boarded the Sea Jets ferry to Heraklion. Our boat ride was hilarious! Every seat was full and Will and I sat next to a younger couple who made it clear that they were exhausted and hoped to sleep on the trip. Unfortunately for them, a live band started playing their personal renditions of popular pop songs.

At first the band got know response, but after a pitchy Adele song, they began to gather followers. People sat on the stairs listening and gathered around us dancing.

At one point, the boat captain came out to do the macarena and the man next to me exclaimed, “Who is driving the boat?!”

We were still laughing as we got into a taxi to take us to our Airbnb in Crete. Our hosts were ready to meet us with their sweet one-year old baby. They brought us each a muffin and had us try the wine, Milarakis, which is supposed to be drank as a shot. It tasted spicy.
