Blog / Random thoughts and musings.



I’ve hinted a few times here about our upcoming cruise, but never got around to providing details, so here’s the deal: We’re doing a 12-day cruise of the western Mediterranean aboard the brand new Emerald Princess. We start in Venice, Italy, where we’ll be spending almost three days prior to the start of the cruise. We then spend a day at each of: Athens, Greece; Ephesus, Turkey; Istanbul, Turkey; Mykonos, Greece; Naples, Italy; Rome, Italy; Florence, Italy; and Marseille, France. The cruise ends in Barcelona, Spain, where we’re spending an additional two days before flying home. It’s the longest vacation either of us has ever taken, and given the full itinerary, we expect to be exhausted when we get home. It should be a fantastic experience though, sampling so many cities and seeing so many famous, ancient sites. We can’t wait!

    That looks like a fantabulous trip! With all those stops, I’m guessing that most of your boat time will be overnight for sleeping between locations? I hope it is awesome!

    Enjoy! It sounds fabulous. I highly recommend “getting lost” on Mykonos – it’s gorgeous and lots of fun.

    If they divert you to Rhodes – consider it a blessing, Rhodes is awesome too.

    Miss you guys!
