Crete, Greece Aegean Odyssey 1 – 12 June’18
Come away with #GlamGirlsLuxTravels and
travel writer/ photographer extraordinaire – Francesca Muir
12 days on the island of Crete, home to the famous Mediterranean Diet thanks to the island’s rich soil and warm climate, and cradle of Western Civilization thanks to the ingenuity of the Minoan Civilization; learning about their 9000 year history, their culture and food.
Think crystal clear azure seas; breathtaking views; a Minoan feast (cooked as the Minoans cooked 2500 years ago); mountain villages; traditional lace makers, bootmakers and shepherds; a trip to the last leper island in Europe; a private tour of the Palace of Knossos; cooking Cretan food the traditional way as well as stunning shopping – jewellery; leather goods; olive products; pottery and clothes.
The perfect trip for painters, photographers, artists and writers and those interested in the anthropology of food – it’s so inspiring and there’s so much to see you’ll want to go back!
More about Francesca Muir and her dynamic photography..
“I happily blame my ‘English/French, born in East Africa’ heritage for my peripatetic nature and insatiable thirst for travel!
Like a cat, I have lived a number of lives – a dancer; politician’s wife; feature writer/journalist; radio presenter (I had the only English speaking program on the island of Crete for five years) freelance photographer/writer; film/tv marketing and publicist; scriptwriter, director and choreographer of children’s theatre and musicals; events co-ordinator; administration manager; Ex-Pat’ mother and passionate Grecophile.
The one life which has given me the greatest pleasure was living in eastern Crete for a number of years, from the late 1980’s. The fact that my daughter Alexandra was born there could possibly have something to do with it, as well as the never ending joy of living with that Greek blue!
It was there that I literally fell into the world of photography. And who could blame me? After all, Greece is all about the clarity of light, the purity of colour and simplicity of line.
I live to breathe Mediterranean air peppered with wild thyme and oregano; swim in azure seas and bathe in that Greek light which has mesmerized so many, for so long.
Today, I live and work in Sydney.”
