Where We Went

Although we passed through Athens going and coming, we spent almost three weeks on Crete, the largest and southernmost of Greece’s many islands. The map below contains a little inset in the lower left corner that shows the whole territory of Greece in a light yellow color. I drew a small box around Crete, so you can see where it is in relation to the rest of the country. (This may appear a little too thorough, but some of our friends kept asking if we’d been to Cyprus, which is [a] not a part of Greece, even though most of its population is Greek, and [b] too far east to show on the little map in the corner—it’s a lot closer to Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon than to any Greek territory.)

You can click on any of the stars on the map to go to the part of the site that describes our visit there. Or, if you prefer, you can get to the same destination by putting your cursor on Journey in the navigation bar at the top of the page, and clicking an item in the menu that drops down.

It would have cluttered up the map to add links to the sections of the narrative that describe how we got from Boston to Crete and back, but you can find them in the same place on the navigation bar. Or, if you’d prefer to avoid that, here they are as well:
