A Glimpse Back at the RTW

On our RTW, we took thousands of photos (thank goodness for digital), and we enjoy looking back through them and reliving fun moments. In this post, and many to follow, we’ll share some of our favorites with you.

A lone sailboat slowly making way past the tiny village of Oia, Greece was a lovely sight. This tiny and incredibly photogenic village is precariously perched on the cliffs on the north end of the island of Santorini. It’s almost impossible to take a bad photo here.

Bitter orange trees grow on many streets and in the parks of central Athens, and they help soften the edges of a bustling, noisy city. This tree, growing in the yard of a 13th Century Byzantine Church was particularly nice. There are a number of these wonderful old churches scattered around the business district, and all are still active places of worship. They provide an amazing contrast to what surrounds them.

And how many of you realized that Santa spends the off-season in Larnaca, Cyprus?

Happy Trails,
James
