    • detailed itinerary below • note everything blue underlined is a live link

    We will meet at small Crete escape Souda Bay in Southern Crete. This quiet apartment hotel is separated from from the sea by a little used coastal road; 700 meters from the beach. The slightly raised elevation affords a wonderful sea view from all the units and the pool. We have reserved the entire hotel at Souda Bay and have reserved some extra rooms at the apartment hotel next door as well. Our base will be at Souda Bay and the neighbouring apartment hotel is only a 4 minute walk. (all rooms are similar with a small kitchen and a wonderful sea view). The hotel is 1.5 km from a seaside village called Plakias that has taverns, kiosks and shops and a 50- minute bus ride from what many call Crete’s most beautiful town - Chania Atum will teach for approximately 4-6 hours each day (poolside and under a pergola) and give an hour or two of homework in the form of contemplation or activity. We will have 2 group outings: 1 half day to the
