My dad went back to the US, and I took a plane to a much hotter and sunnier country. The hostel in the capital had a rooftop bar with quite a view.
Here there were many ancient ruins.
I took the overnight ferry to an island:
I went to visit King Minos, but he wasn't in. His interior decorator had done some pretty impressive stuff, though.
I continued on to another island, this one more medieval than ancient.
