Sweet in Crete

Mei of Travel with Mei and Kerstin has produced the most mouth-watering description of Crete ever. Complete with photographs of their meals. More people should do this, I think. Seven destinations, seven meals, seven yummy descriptions and photographs.

The secret formula of the Cretan longevity is mainly attributed to their daily dietary habits.
