European Vacation – Aphrodite to Rieta

We woke up this morning on a very rocky boat.  We managed to eat breakfast, but almost wished we hadn’t as the rocking continued. We found out that Manuel was moved to the fancy dining room which we are not allowed in.  Greg continued to make signals to us and Pablo brought us drinks just… Continue reading European Vacation – Aphrodite to Rieta

European Vacation – Aphrodite – 2nd Day 1

Our room mate did not come back to the room at all last night, but she had left some of her things in there.  After breakfast we went to the purser’s office to find out what was going on.  He said he would look after it and within an hour the rest of her stuff… Continue reading European Vacation – Aphrodite – 2nd Day 1

European Vacation – Venice to Aphrodite

We woke up wet this morning in the middle of a thunderstorm.  We had to pack up a wet tent again.  Once we were on the road, it didn’t take long to clear up and get hot again and we are on our way to Greece. The contract on the car rental did not allow… Continue reading European Vacation – Venice to Aphrodite
