I can’t be in Rethymno, Crete without visiting Chania’s beautiful Venetian Harbour. The old port is pretty and much bigger than Rethymno. From Rethymno, we took a comfortable one-hour bus ride to Chania for less than 10 Euros. Like Rethymno, Chania is also full of shopping, churches, old buildings, cafes, restaurants, and many smokers. We even saw a very old woman with no teeth smoking outside the bus station in the heat. How sad! But overall, it was a fun, but humid, day. My favorite part of that day was probably shopping at Juke Box music store where the owner, George A. Korkidis, was so nice, helpful and a lot of fun. He made our music shopping such an experience that we will always remember Chania for. Enjoy the slide show below of my photos.

As promised, in addition to my last post about fashion in Rethymno, below are some more photos of Rethymno, Crete that you must see. My only thing is I will not be going back to the Greek Islands during the month of August. A bit too hot for me. I would prefer May or September. Next, I will share with you photos from Chania.
For those of you who have not seen my Facebook and Instagram posts recently, I am currently on a buying trip in Europe for my boutique and of course, the Greek Islands are a MUST destination for me. This is my second time in Greece and it keeps enticing me to return for more. So, it looks like I will be visiting one Greek Island per year until I settle with one that I would like to be loyal to. I love the Greek island atmosphere and resort-style fashion. It’s all so light, airy, natural, feminine, and earthy with a touch of glam and sensuality. I feel right at home here in a culture where you are encouraged to bring out your inner goddess and nurture your feminine soul.
Below is a sampling of what I saw in the streets and the boutique window displays of Rethymno, Crete during our stay. I will share with you more photos I took of the unique Old Town Rethymno. You will definitely want to visit after you see my photos!
