Aug 26, 2012 - Samaria Gorge, Greece

Friday, August 24 I managed to have a good sleep last night, but am definitely fighting a cold now. I had a relaxing morning. At 1:30 I joined the group for a wine tasting lunch. I thought we would just have some cheese and crackers to nibble on, but no, it was a full meal with various appetizers, salads, etc. and about seven different types of wines to try. Another big lunch! I haven’t been that fond of Greek wine in the past, but some of the ones I tried today were actually quite good. After another 2-1/2 hour lunch, we joined Vassilis in...

Mar 26, 2005 - Ferry - Kissamos

The ferry wasn't quite as big as the Italy-Greece ferry but still fairly comfortable on a deck fare. The Mediterranean remained very calm throughout the voyage. We hired a portable DVD player and got a couple of movies in. We gave City By The Sea 6/10 and Man Of Fire 8.5/10
