Around the World in 80 Days

Cruising the Mediterranean

Cruising the Mediterranean
What a great day!!!! Did just the Acropolis and the Plaka and it was just right.
Saw, and got a run down from our guide of the most memorable monuments - the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, and the Propylaea. From the area of the Acropolis I took good photos of Hadrian’s Arch and The Temple of Zeus. Also took some great photos of Central Athens with Mt. Lycabettus in the background.
After the cultural bit, we went to a traditional Greek Taverna and had moussaka(can’t spell it) and then wandered through the markets and because it was becoming quite cold we all invested in “hoodies”(warm zip-up jackets with hoods attached)
Our captain has warned us of bad weather starting at 2am tomorrow 11th December.
It was pretty rough but not as bad as from Manila to Hongkong.
Very interesting passing through the Strait of Gibraltar.
Had a pleasant tour up to Fatima when we landed in Lisbon. Arrive in Southhampton on Friday 17th December and getting a taxi to Kensington Plaza Hotel. Having trouble downloading photos so this can go as it is.

Hi Beryl and John - can understand why you can't keep up the frequent blogging and photos due to costs/time but enjoy reading whatever you can put out. Have been telling everyone how you had to make your way through Suez but glad you made it in one piece and we didn't have to dig up some cash for your release from Somalians! Nicky
