You were in August - we were cruising in October in same year starting from Crete going from one island to other, we were moving at nights and ashore by day.Also Ephesos and after Corinth canal Athens were seen. And then
to Dubrovnik - ten marvelous days.
I miss those days!
I could really try to look for pictures from my journeys, even grandchildren could get a better view about our journeys, this is very good idea.
I have been in Greece over ten times and so many other places.
I have to start put those old photos to the scanner :)
Thank you for taking me to this trip and giving me the change to long for Greece !

Hi Leena,
Amazing that we're there the same year. Except for Ephesus, our cruise covered much of your itinerary. But it started and ended in Venice...
Provided you have time, it's sure a good idea to put the old photos to the scanner and show them easily to the others...
