Crete: It can drive you crazy

See Crete the way few people do on a cross-country jeep safari; careening through the countryside, where snow-capped mountains tower over carpets of silver-green olive groves, gazing down at amazing Mediterranean sea views far below mountaintop perches, exploring picturesque villages, having charades-inspired conversations with local farmers who straddle wooden-saddled donkeys and plunging down to secluded sapphire south-shore beaches on this dramatic Greek island.   Janie Robinson explores Crete, Greece in her front page Toronto Star travel story at
