H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, week 34: a Greek lighthouse at sunset

Hellooooooooooo! Another Friday is upon us. Yesterday was a pretty good Thursday for me; I got my passport back, with 48 blank pages inserted. Now I’ll be able to continue to travel internationally, for years to come, without running out of pages for passport stamps. And I can turn my attention to my next passport-related errand: applying for a tourist visa for my March 2014 trip to India!

But first I must turn my attention to the fact that it’s time for a new photo of the week! Today’s featured image comes from Crete, the largest of the Greek islands. Specifically, it comes from Chania (spelled “Χανιά” in Greek), a charming harbour town that features Venetian-style architecture. In Chania’s harbour stands a lighthouse. One of the oldest lighthouses in the Mediterranean, the structure was first built around 1600, and assumed its present form circa 1839. Here’s what the lighthouse looks like at sunset:

This photo was taken during my visit to Greece in August 2004. During that trip, Greece became the fifth country on my World Karaoke Tour. It’s hard to believe there was a time when I’d sung in so few countries. 🙂

Would you like to visit a Greek island?

  1. Gorgeous! We did the Athens/mainland trip in 2008 and spent only one day island hopping via ferry. If/when I get back there, would love to spend more time exploring and relaxing on the islands.

    • @Jess: There’s a lot of great stuff to see on the mainland too; but yeah, you could easily spend months just exploring the islands. And enjoying sunsets like this one. 🙂
