WHAT I LIKED
I liked the beaches, especially making coves out of sand and dredging them to make a harbour. We went high up into the mountains and you had to go up lots of windy roads which made my mum scared. We had a big villa – it had two balconies, three bedrooms, a pool and air conditioning to keep us cool.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
The worst bit was that it took an hour and a half to get our bags at Heraklion airport. Also I didn't like having to put toilet paper in the bin, or putting my face in the sea because it was so salty.
WHAT I ATE & DRANK
I ate Greek salad at every meal and had loads of lovely tzatziki. We had fresh seafood like barbecued octopus and squid in tavernas.
WHAT I SAW
I saw some amazing views when we went into the mountains. I also went to Knossos, which is a massive archaeological site. I must have seen at least 50 shrines by the roadside.
WHAT I BOUGHT
We bought some cherries from an old lady in a village called Gerakari and some honey in a village called Spilli.
