|It is impossible to dislike a workout along the royal blue waters of the Mediterranean. As you begin, you are alone on the white rocky coastline with only the sounds of waves and shore birds for company. The muted grays and browns of the terrain serve to enhance the sea's beautiful blue. This is a solitary excursion...as you gaze at the horizon it is not difficult to understand why ancient inhabitants were convinced of the flatness of the earth. Perhaps you find yourself thinking of the adventures of Odysseus.....|
Segment 2 begins on an inland gravel path. Even so, the sounds of the waves are within earshot. There are mountains in the background and you have several encounters with hundreds of gulls! The middle portion of this segment is a continuous journey down a highway headed toward the mountains. Eventually you end up on the other side of the waterway, looking back at scenery you passed earlier.
A stiff breeze is blowing in segment 3. The paved road follows a circuitous route through vineyards, orchards and dry picturesque farmland. As the sky begins to look threatening in the distance, you make your way around the windmills of the Lasithi Plateau...they look more like oversized pinwheels....many are abandoned and in disrepair....but the adventure is fascinating. The entire DVD is 66 minutes in length. It is a wonderful workout!
