The Rambling Writer Returns to Crete, part 14: A Tour of Knossos, concluded

After a break for a drink in the shadewe’re back to finish our tour of the labyrinth!

NOTE: Of course, Thor and I had to make another trip to Greece, as he’s fallen as much in love with the islands as I am. This time, in addition to other island-hopping, I wanted to return to Crete after 37 years. My first months-long trip was as a hippie backpacker, camping in the ruins and falling under the spell of the mysterious, vanished Minoan culture. This time, I got to introduce Thor to “glorious Kriti” and research more settings for my novel-in-progress, THE ARIADNE DISCONNECT. This new blog series started October 19, 2019, and will continue every Saturday.

If you were with us last Saturday (Jan. 18), we took a break after viewing the dramatic “charging bull” fresco. Ready to pick up Ariadne’s thread and find your way with Thor and me through the twists and turns?

Because our Book View Cafe website server at this point may not handle many photos, I’m posting my complete blog entries on my own author website at www.sarastamey.com, where you can finish this episode and enjoy all the accompanying photos.
