The Island of Spinalonga

If you are in the Elounda area is a boat trip to Spinalonga island a must do!
From Elounda can you reach the island in about 20 minutes. My interest was the history of the island as a leper colony. I read a lot of this sad history.
The day of my visit was a really hot and windless day. It was very exhausting to walk around because there were only a few shadow places.
The light was extremly bright and so it was not easy to take good photos. I needed a lot of time. Even because of the huge crowed visiting the island.
The visit was it worth! It was so interesting and informative!
But be careful! Take water with you! The heat is extrem and the beverages you can buy are exorbitant expensive!

Wenn Du in der Region Elounda bist, ist eine Bootsfahrt zur Insel Spinalonga ein Muss!
Von Elounda erreichst Du die Insel in ca. 20 Minuten. Mein Interesse galt der Geschichte der Insel als Leprakolonie. Ich habe viel von dieser traurigen Geschichte gelesen.
Der Tag meines Besuchs war ein sehr heißer und windstiller Tag. Es war sehr anstrengend, herumzulaufen, weil es nur wenige Schattenplätze gab.
Das Licht war extrem hell und es war nicht einfach, gute Fotos zu machen. Ich habe viel Zeit gebraucht. Auch wegen der riesigen Menschenmenge, die die Insel besucht.
Der Besuch hat sich aber gelohnt! Es war sehr interessant und informativ!
Aber sei vorsichtig! Trinkwasser mitnehmen! Die Hitze ist extrem und die Getränke, die Du kaufen kannst, sind unglaublich teuer!
