Unfortunately I will not be able to go.
Only a few weeks before I am going on another short trip, leaving my wife and daughter behind, so that's me done traveling on my own until at least next autumn.
I have been to Crete, and specifically Chania, in the late spring almost 7 years ago and would recommend it to anyone.
The old city is lovely. Aside from the obvious (the little streets and the beautiful harbout) I enjoyed the covered market, well worth a visit, lots of photo opportunities.
The not so distant Rethymno is also nice. Heraklion has a lot to offer and is also worth a visit if you are up for a long day driving.
Also do visit the beaches to the west, especially Elafonissi, and on the mountains Omalos, a very special place indeed.
For the adventurous, the Samaria gorge is famous and beautiful.
