V-Strom in Crete

We're just back from a week on the Greek island of Crete. I was undecided about hiring a bike but a couple of days of the local buses convinced me I needed wheels. Being a rugged island an "Adventure Sport" type seemed a good idea and a Suzuki V-Strom 650 fitted the bill.

  The V-Strom in the mountains

 The road runs out!

 Lunch by the sea


 Roman ruins at Aptera

There are military cemeteries for those killed in the Invasion of Crete in 1941. This is the Commonwealth cemetery at Souda Bay

And the German cemetery at Maleme

 "Two unknown German Soldiers"
