Re: The "new" airport of Heraklion is nearly ready

Well, as with all publicity, they only show you what they want to show you. If you put the workmen, hammers and drills back in to the above photographs you'll get a better idea of reality.

Re: When are you coming to Crete (again) in 2018?

Heading out to the far east of Crete at the beginning of April to make a start on the first part of the Cretan Way (E4) . I can't take the full 4 weeks off work so making do with 10 days of walking and then maybe some more later in the year.
