Location: Crete, Greece

Today we woke up in Crete. The crew was up and fed by 7:15, and soon thereafter, we headed off to learn about ancient Greece from Chad. We were able to wander the site of Knossos and have some pretty amazing slushies. After that, we visited a nearby museum and then had some free time in the city. Even though most of the shops were closed (note that it was 10 am on a Sunday morning), most people still had a great time wandering the streets and eating at cafes and restaurants. That evening, we began our three-day sail to Sicily. While emotions were running high in anticipations for the next couple of days, as a boat, we really bonded and got excited for the adventure to come.
