Travel | Going to Crete for two weeks!

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

While you’re reading this I’m probably getting ready to leave for my holiday in Greece. That’s right, I’m going to Crete for two weeks with my brother! I am so excited! *starts dancing the sirtaki* I just know that we’ll have a blast. In 2011 my brother and I already went on holiday to Greece together – we went to Rhodes that time – and it was just such a fun trip. This time we’re going a bit bigger and we’re going to explore the whole island of Crete. During my absence I won’t be posting any new blog articles – sowwy – but before I say goodbye I want to share some of my favorite pictures from our last Greece holiday. Enjoy, and see you in two weeks!
