you take the road west out of plakias to sellia, from there you head further west through rodakina heading to chora sphakion ( sfakia), from there you head up to anapolis
Chris,

East and west confused? (too much Raki?)

Mike

  too little raki, that's the problem!

Thanks Alex
I've had a lot of trouble getting that in there, and I've been doing everything right.
It just needs shifting up a bit now!
BTW it's taken from the other side of the bridge just to prove I went over it.
There's a great little bar behind me all made from olive trees so anyone can have a snifter to settle the nerves if they make it.

Yes, maybe the picture had to do a shorter trip from Italy rather than from UK

George, is the bridge 1 hour walking from Anapolis ?
And what you call the "little bar", is that the taverna which told me harribobs ?

I'm not a 'walker' Alex so wouldn't like to say, I sure someone can answer that question.
The little bar is a 'little bar' not a taverna, it used to be a mobile but a hut has be built out of olive and there's a couple of tables and chairs outside, very basic!

uh! Thanks! 1 hour walking... and another hour for the way back!
Better to say that, like George, I'm not a walker! (as my grandfather says "young people was better in the past")
...so I think I will visit Anapolis, then take the car to reach the bridge and try to pass it only by foot...
Then coming back to the car... after a good couple of raki in the little bar

Hello Alex,
"a good couple of raki" for the road from Anopolis to Chora Sfakion?!  
Don't take the shortcut to Loutro... The road is a litztle bit frightening even with only a bottle of Zaros inside...

No no... I mean using the "raki-way-of-thinking" (= drinking 2 or more raki) only to pass the bridge

If your going to walk over the bridge Alex, I suggest you keep a clear head, especially if you intend looking down into the gorge...!

errr... yes, I don't want to do the same as the german tourist  
(although I've heard that was a suicide...?)

but how do I do with my vertigo?!?  

BTW, before I was joking... I usually don't drink alcohol, especially superalcoholic, during the day...  
and I want to take some spectacular photos from the middle of the bridge!

Bye,
Alex

Wise Man, I don't either during the day, maybe the odd beer or two, I tend to find it spoils the day.
Brave your vertigo Alex, and take the pictures.

The first time we went over that bridge I stopped before going over to have a look down into the gorge and to behonest we were a bit apprehensive, until a truck came over from the opposite side.
The wooden slats were bouncing and the noise was to say the least off putting, but we went over anyway, very slowly, with my eyes focused on the other side.
I have been up there on numerous occasions since and love the place!
If you have any height phobias that you want to get rid of 'DO IT'
I'm up there again this year and really looking forward to the peace of the mountains.

Best of luck Chris, if I see anyone walking the gorge when I go over the bridge, I'll give you a shout!  

The weird thing is one can hear the people below you talking

Georgie - you are such a brave soldier.  I was not a bit scared on the top of the bridge
