Mediterranean Cruise – October 2006


My first cruise ever! And I loved it. I vow every year to go on another cruise, but so far haven’t been able to work it into the schedule.

I won’t be going into tons of detail, but wanted to document places I visited during this trip that are featured on “the book.”

Athens
This was where we embarked on the cruise, but we arrived a day early to see some of the sights. We should have spent more time here.

The Acropolis – it was a beautiful, clear morning and I could see for miles all around Athens.

Turkey
First port.

The Roman Ruins of Ephesus

Malta
We went scuba diving.

Rome
I loved Rome and can’t wait to go back.

Forum
Trevi Fountain
Vatican City
Coliseum
Sistine Chapel – we were the last group of the day and had it to ourselves
Mount Etna – we saw lava!

Monte Carlo
Fantasy day spent where the truly rich live, work and play.

The Grand Casino – I left them 20 euros.
Hotel de Paris – beautiful lobby, very expensive

We also went to the Jacques Cousteau museum, but it isn’t in the book.

Barcelona
Museu Picasso – we nearly got kicked out because DH was taking unauthorized pictures.

Lisbon
This was the port where we disembarked. It was a national holiday and many things were closed.
