We dock in Kusadasi, Turkey
The last time I saw a street vendor selling balloons was in Hanoi, Vietnam
An ancient amphitheater at Ephesus.
There was an international music festival held here only ONCE.
Then the Turkish government put a stop to further such performances,
fearing that modern sound systems would harm the structure
Food, glorious food…
I did try to eat the healthy options while on board,
did not always work out that way
Day 8: Mykonos…I decided NOT to get off
We walked to the metro and enjoyed a quick ride into Athens.
A quick dip in this fountain would have been great
Despite all the UGLY graffiti in Athens,
I did find one building that did not appear to have any.
A walk around the Flea Market and coffee and lunch
And a beer for my wife.
hosted by Hotel Manager, Bosco Pires.
And YES, that is me in a suit!
Finally we get some “blanket art”…
and take a tour to the Amalfi Coast.
I have no idea why this is so named.
It has black sand and LOTS of rocks.
Amazing how long it has lasted.
Almost time to fly home…
One final sunset at sea
Disembarkation day arrives.
An emotional farewell to ship and crew.
A wonderful adventure, filled with many memories
Time to say goodbye to my new friends in guest relations.
What a great crew!
A final meal on Italian soil…
Shortly we will be back home, where the real world awaits.
We always use Leon as he is always early and a pleasure to deal with.
