    Good morning!

    My husband and I are traveling to Greece towards the end of June.
    We are spending a few days in Crete before heading to Santorini.
    I would love to hike the Samaria Gorge but am concerned about his knees during the descent.
    I have read that it is possible to take a ferry to Agia Roumeli and walk up the last 1.5 km to The Gates and then back down to enjoy the beach.
    Do you have any advice?

      Hi Stephanie! That sounds incredible. I haven’t been to Crete myself, but I’ve heard good things. I would recommend joining the TBA Travel Tribe on Facebook and asking the ladies there if any of them have done this hike/have advice.
