Cruising through Greece

We have just arrived in Rome, Italy and finally have internet connection.

Our cruise was a mixture of wonderful, indulgence and speed.

Wonderful – not having to worry about unpacking and packing each night. Wonderful, in that there is entertainment every night and delicious food and the chance to meet all these people from around the world.

Indulgence – there was just way too much good food. So much so that we got tired of eating after a while.

Speed – We covered so much in so little time! It’s amazing the things we got to see in 12 days. However, the trade off is that we didn’t get the chance to absorb any of the every day Greek culture besides the culture shock of entering a non-muslim country after being in the Maldives and Turkey.

As it was such a whirlwind of a tour, this post will be just as speedy.

Our first Greek meal. This was just huge - Spinach pastries, cheese pastries, fried cheese, fried chips, tzatziki and gyros.

Santorini, Greece

By far the most beautiful of the Greek cities we visited.
