Care for a travel resolution? I know it’s only August and we are yet to get through with autumn and a part of winter but today is as good a time as any. Travel resolutions may be superfluous but marrying these two words doubles the impression. A wonderful way to motivate yourself to start a year full of wander is booking a winter walking holiday with Inntravel before January comes along. I truly believe that it pays to plan ahead so, you will be all set before the year begins.
Being the largest of all Greek islands, it is safe to say that Crete flawlessly ticks all the boxes for the ultimate holiday.

You might not originally think it, but there is a huge difference between traveling and taking a vacation. On vacation, most people like to have things done for them – staying in hotels, eating at the tourist-focused restaurants, lounging on the private beach. Which is all completely fine, of course. After all, the vast majority of us work hard all year round, and a little bit of relaxation at a beautiful resort is usually very welcomed by the time summer rolls around! However, this type of holiday isn’t for everyone, and many people who have been bitten by the travel bug much prefer to experience their break differently. This means living like a local – fully immersing them in the local culture and embracing everything that comes with it. When this is a noticeable culture different from your own, this can be especially rewarding. Take Greek culture, for example.
