    Mykonos Another beautiful sleepy little island. Enjoyed a real gyro at a little restaurant by the water. It was so much better than the gyros I've had here.

    :-) I'm not sure the Mediterranean ever gets really rough for a big ship. The newer ships have stabilizers nowadays that really smooth things out, anyway, particularly on the ocean liners. I've been on several cruises in various waters and if I ever felt more than a brief gentle rocking, I can't remember it. NY or Boston to Southampton might be a challenge, or the Caribbean during hurricane season ... I get seasick in a heartbeat anytime I'm outside the jetties in a small-to-mid-sized boat, but I've never had a problem on a cruise ship.

    ...and speaking of rugby, if I want to watch a game where there is no strategy beyond running straight ahead into a wall of people in 2 yard increments until you give up and punt, I can watch the Jayhawks play football for a lot less hassle. Tickets are basically free.

    Oops...I thought that was a really big mermaid. You know that raises some questions you probably don't want to answer...right?

    The first morning, I threw open the shades to reveal the image above. Conversation: Wife: "Close the shades." BC: "Why?" Wife: "They can see us." BC: "You mean the dolphins?" Wife: "No, people." BC: "What people?" Wife: "The people on the ship." BC: "What ship?" Wife: "That ship." BC: "You mean the island?" Wife: "Yes." BC: "So you think there are people on that distant island with a Hubble telescope trained on our room?" Wife: "Yes." BC: While closing the shades, "Ok."

    That's exactly how I imagined the view from a cruise ship would look. It's uncanny.

    Santorini, like all Greek islands is hilly/mountainous and rugged terrain. The economy is based on tourism but it is still a thriving little island with little cities sprinkled throughout. The Greek Islands don't get much rainfall and so at this time of year it is dry. Water is not easy to come by. The islands have not been scarred by resorts and high-rise hotels. There are resorts but they are small and tasteful and blend in with the countryside. You won't see any structures that aren't the typical white stone or concrete like substance quarried from island. Very quaint and I can see why it is a honeymooner's paradise. Yes, I know, I'm not in Kansas any more...

    Santorini My view out my window as we took a cruise ship. I wondered if I would get sick on the trip but it never happened as we had calm seas the whole time. It was an enjoyable experience and a great way to move around with minimal fuss. The food was great, the people were nice and accommodating. There is lots to do on a cruise ship, however, at the end of the day, you just want to eat, watch a little Australian rugby and go to sleep. There are a lot of activities on a cruise ship. Ninety five percent are pretty lame. Rooms were nice, cruise ship was clean. No complaints. It was better than expected.

    My best friend got into a bottle of ouzo in high school ... I wasn't there, but on the morning after he looked like an octopus had tried to have its way with him with two or three or eight pipe wrenches under the stars at the marina, so I do have a clue what BC means, and it is a powerful warning.

    Good move. You're not half as dumb as I look. It pairs well with grilled octopus though. All the Italian you need to know (once you get past the French). Sono affamato!!

    Spent two weeks with the family touring some of the Greek Islands and Italy. My wife has had a burning desire to see the Greek Islands so she planned the whole trip. I simply nodded a lot when she gave me the itinerary. I made the request for a more intensive tour through the Roman coliseum which was way too brief when I visited twenty years ago. I really didn't have much knowledge of Greece before the trip so I had no expectations. The only thing I knew was to stay clear of the Ouzo which is a particularly nasty licorice flavored liqueur made on the islands. We'll review the trip, focus on some of the answers to questions I had along the way, provide back stories and interesting experiences that happened along the way. So put your tray table in the upright and locked position, get your passport out and don't forget to tip your tour guide. Andiamo! Verb. andiamo. first-person plural present indicative of andare - we go. first-person plural present subjunctive of andare - that we go. first-person plural imperative of andare - let's go!

    Speaking of being menaced by local wildlife....sorta'....not really... This is an area on the outskirts of San Antonio. Hikers hid from "wild pigs" in Government Canyon tree, but there were no pigs It sounds like they might have been playing a bit fast and loose with the word "man" in this context.

    You know...in my younger days I probably would have wanted to party with these two. Oklahoma couple allegedly driving stolen vehicle filled with uranium, a rattlesnake, and Kentucky Deluxe That sounds like the basis for a Hunter S. Thompson novel.

    This reminds me of the time I tweeted to Stouffers a picture of the Roman salt mines from "Spartacus", and they replied that they were "continually improving our products to meet the needs of consumers ..." Corporate PR has no soul ...

    Never been to Malta, unless in a prior life as a Crusader (or a serf)... Hey, it could happen. If you ever get a chance to get back to the general area, you have to visit Topkapı Palace in Istanbul ... The freakin' Turks could make a jeweled dagger like nobody's business.

    LOL... Was in Malta today, I visited the mines where Malto-Meal was first discovered. Fascinating stuff. You know as lazy as the Ottoman's were - lounging around in their recliners, Easy Boys and Ottomans, they sure attacked a lot of Greek Islands.
