The day before our flight back to London we had a 3 hour drive ahead of us. This is what I was referring to when I said flying to Heraklion is not the best option to visit the West of Crete.
We tried to make the most out of the drive back and added a pit stop to jump in the sea and to have lunch.
Still the drive was long and we were tired of spending so much time inside the car.
When we finally reached our accommodation in Agia Pelagia we just wanted to rest. We had our own little apartment and a balcony with sea view and laid in bed for a little while before heading to the swimming pool.
Dinner was at a beach nearby and we did enjoy the friendly service and the chat about Crete with the waiter.
After a good night sleep and breakfast by the swimming pool we gathered our stuff (that was all over the place after just a few hours of arriving there) and packed our bags.
The airport was a short drive away. We returned the car and got our camera case and spare battery back (after a lot of waiting and explaining).
Even with only one battery the entire time we filmed a lot of our time in Crete. Enjoy the holiday video below.
