In the summer of 2011, I travelled to Europe for a few weeks and to Crete in particular for only a week. I could have spent months on Crete just touring around the beautiful island. Before getting into the trip, I just have to show you how precarious the journey by car is to the top of the Samaria Gorge. At times there was barely enough room for 1 vehicle but in this video you see a truck trying to pass me. I moved to the left of the road as there was only the smal road and then a drop of about 1000 feet down essentially a cliff. It scared the &5$#@$# out of me driving up there and scared my wife even worse. (She was taking the video.) have a look.
