Went down to the waterside of our local village Plaka and took the ferry over to Spinalonga – all of ten minutes.
We then walked around the island which was first a Venetian fortress and more recently used as a leper colony until 1915. The colony was paid for by the Greek government and people appear to have been well looked after but they were isolated from their families and friends although it seems people did marry and have children on the island during those dark times. It is a very photogenic place from just about every angle.
Lots of opportunities for a bit of posing too:). And great to be spending time with my mate Emma
