Crete dreams – Knossos

Olive trees stretching out beyond the road

Parched soil, the relief of rain

Driving up into the mountains

Orange sellers by the roadside

Lefka Ori backing Chania

Don’t forget to drive on the right!

Satnav lifesaver

Driving the wrong way down a one way road

Speed limit, what speed limit?

How to describe Knossos?

Fable made reality, an archaeologist’s dream

Imagining life in Minoan times

Palace intrigue and seafaring traders

Giant pithoi vases, murals of fights, dances, black and red columns

A thriving civilisation thousands of years ago

Higgledy piggledy dusty stone rooms set on a hill

Clouds scudding across the sky

Inspiration to achieve greatness
