Around the world I have, as earlier mentioned on here, gathered small spots that lie especially close to my heart. A set of places I feel I can to some extent, actually call home. And Crete is one of those places. Sure, it's a tourist-populated island where most Swedes go on holiday. But that's also the only part of the island those people wish to discover. There is so much more to this little slice of heaven, this strip of land filled with everything you could possibly want and need. I truly believe I could spend my life there in a little cottage by the sea, someday when I'm older. It's almost getting hard to explain how much it means to me, how important it is to me that I can know I have Crete to come home to - for me it's not solely about getting away somewhere, it's actually coming home as well. It just happens to be both things in one. So instead of trying to get you to understand through text, I'll do what I've found I like to do best here - show you.
These are from last summer - enjoy. It's beauty knocks me every time, and it's familiarity comforts me. And as always, blue is the warmest colour.
