Before the free travel started we had a cruise down the Mediterranean. Now usually the HUG overseas group tours include Santorini and Crete, but that boat was being renovated and our boat we took was not going there. Oh well. Still WONDERFUL!!! We did go to Mykenos, Patmos, Rhodes, and Ephesus. It was really great. I almost got pecked to death by a huge pelican on Mykenos. When in Ephesus, I kept thinking how much Hank would have enjoyed this. So, I picked up a rock and will call it a paperweight. I hope he likes his new paperweight (rock). Maybe I should wash it for him first.
Berlin and Brussels:
These are my first two stops in Europe. Brussels was pretty and cool. I liked it there. They spoke French and I love French. Berlin, they only speak German here. Crazy kids. But, I have seen the remaining Berlin Wall, Reichstag, Charlie's Checkpoint, the famous TV Tower, and tons of other stuff. It's great here. Huge town, lots to see.
Venice was going to be our next stop, but we decided to go straight to Paris. Eh, who can blame us.
Home is where the heart is.
