Yes, Crete even has a few lakes

My journal

Believe it or not, the island of Crete known for its award-winning beaches has a few lakes.

One of them just 15 min drive from the city center of Chania in the area of Agia. And that is actually the name of the lake.

Penelope and I took a short day trip and enjoyed nature together with the lakes ducks and geese.

When on the island perhaps lake Agia should be on your radar of visits.

A holiday photo walk around Chania Crete.
Walking around the town of Chania near the end of the year one gets a chance to live some of the traditions here in Greece. First thing you will notice and feel is that Christmas isn’t as big of a deal as it is in other parts of the world. Here in Greece Easter is more celebrated and way more festive. Still the spirit is out there and people have a good time. Another noticeable and pleasant aspect is the weather. Especially here on Crete, if you want bellow zero temperatures you will have to drive up into the mountains and due to the high altitude (up to 2453m) even see some snow.
