Greece

Richard went on holiday to Crete, Greece around 1991, its a lovely island. Its the first place in the world that I drove on the wrong side of the road! I stayed in a resort called Hersonissos which is in the north of the island.

It has loads of bars and cafes, We spent a lot of time in the old village up the hill. The square was full of tavernas, and an old chap called Costos told us stories about the war, and how the Germans used his cellar to keep all the ammunition in ! He gave the English free peanuts and the Germans got nothing at all !
