Crete (Κρήτη), Greece (Ελλάδα)

02.05.2017 – 07.05.2017

Parker’s team at work organizes an annual “off site.” While in California, the team would travel to Lake Tahoe for a weekend of skiing or something like this. In Zürich, the team travels internationally of course. This year it was decided to spend a few days in Crete, Greece. I was then able to fly out to join Parker for the weekend. The people of Crete were very friendly and hospitable. We had a great time enjoying warm weather, sunshine, and incredibly delicious food (all the seafood!)
