Ever since taking one of Ramblers Worldwide Holidays’ Cretan holidays in 2011, teacher and illustrator Liz Scotta had been meaning to send in her series of drawings depicting the main events and highlights of her trip.
Recently, she finally got around to doing so, and gave us permission to publish her photographic reproductions of the artwork she created during her Cretan trip.
The island of Crete, off the coast of Greece, is one of the prime destinations for our walking holidays’ enthusiasts. Walking in Crete with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays will not only allow you to soak in the island’s plentiful natural beauty and tourist spots, but also let you enjoy the best of high-end hotel accommodation.
Recently, we published a post on this very blog depicting an interesting project by reader and Ramblers Worldwide Holidays customer Liz Scotta. In it, this American schoolteacher – an illustrator in her spare time – offered a visual representation (almost like a graphic novel) of her holiday walking in Crete with Ramblers Worldwide Holidays, in a series of interestingly minimalistic drawings.
Keen to share her artwork and experiences with her readers, Liz forwarded us photos of the images in an e-mail, asking that they be used toward one of our walking culture blog posts. We promptly obliged, inserting some of the pictures in a blog post you may have read last week.
Even after posting that, however, we were still left with so many of Liz’s wonderful pictures that we could not help but do a Part 2, which you are in the process of reading. Below, then, you will find the remainder of Ms Scotta’s drawings of her holiday walking in Crete. We would like to thank Liz once again for kindly sending us these pictures and allowing us to create two unique and original posts out of them!
Liz’s drawings perfectly capture the appeal of this walking holiday, and give even those who have never been to Crete a nice feel for what it is like to visit the island. They also make for a different sort of Walking Culture post, and we are happy that she gave us the opportunity to share them with our readers. Thank you, Liz!
