We had the chance to enjoy a remarkably bright sun yesterday in one of the pretties coastal cities of Crete, Agios Nikolaos. There is a small lake in the city that is connected to the sea and is serving as a serene harbor for all the small boats. People say that lake Voulismeni is bottomless but that's probably just an urban legend (obviously).
We enjoyed a long stroll by its shore, ate souvlaki at a happy and colorful tavern and a big ice cream at a cafe near by before hitting the road again. The city was so peaceful and quiet and with a very positive vibe in the air. Agios Nikolaos is flooded by tourist during summer whereas it has only a considerably small amount of locals this time of year. It was fun to observe the shop owners being busy preparing their shops and taverns, giving them a face lift to welcome visitors in a month or so.
Have you ever been to Agios Nikolaos or somewhere else in Crete? I'd love to know what you think of this place!
