Okay the computer and I have rested and I finished picking my favorite pictures, so we're off again!
Our next stop was Santorini (Greek island with an Italian name, go figure). If you've seen Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
, that's where Lena goes, I think. It looks like it, anyway.
Then we went to Kusadasi, Turkey - the gateway port to the ruins at Ephesus. Very cool! The picture is what's left of the library.
Our next port was Mykonos - in the morning we took a boat over to the island of Delos, the legendary birthplace of Apollo.
Then in the afternoon, we walked around Mykonos - beautiful! One of the places I would go back to visit.
Next up - Athens! The obligatory Parthenon pic:
Then on to Olympia, site of the first Olympic games.
Our last stop in Greece - Corfu.
Finally, the cruise ends in Venice - truly unique and beautiful...so you get two pictures! The first one was taken looking across the Grand Canal just at dusk (that's the moon, by the way). The other one was taken from our water taxi when we were on the way to the airport - the view of St. Mark's Square from the water.
That's the trip, gentle readers!
