Going to Crete

Posted by Julie on 4/09/01 at 08:13 (044056)

Hi everyone

I'm going to Crete for two weeks tomorrow morning, so I'll be away from the board. Just wanted to say 'goodbye'. I hope you all have a nice Easter and look forward to talking when I'm back.

All the best

Julie

Hi Julie!

You really get around, don't you! You mentioned a trip to Germany and a trip to India... I don't even know where Crete is!!! hee hee.

I hope you have a wonderful trip... you deserve it. I will miss you while you are gone...

Be safe and have a great time!

Have a great time. Any special reason you decided on Crete, not that it is a great place to go. Enjoy

Thanks everyone for your good wishes. Crete is my favourite place - I've been going there for 20 years, sometimes with my husband, sometimes on my own. It's the southernmost point of Europe, Val - if you look at a map of the Mediterranean, it lies out in the middle of the sea south of Greece and West of Cyprus. It's an island, but it's big: really, it's a continent, inexhaustible. We've only scratched the surface in all these years.

Special reason for going, Dr? The mountains, which are grand and majestic and glorious, and the sea which, in the south of the island where I go, is the clearest and bluest in the world. The walking and the swimming. And the people, who are the kindest, proudest and craziest anywhere. And the food, which is simple and wonderful. Crete is kind of my bolt-hole, and I'm really looking forward to being there. It's always refreshing and invigorating.

Interesting websites, if you feel like a little cyber-exploration:

'See' you all in two weeks.

Take care, and all the best

Julie
