World Travel – Turkey in Europe (Istanbul) 2007

Now on our small cruise ship, cross the Aegean Sea and enter the channel passing Çanakkale, Turkey until we reach the Sea of Marmara before docking in Istanbul, Turkey; on the Europe side. We spend time visiting the major sites such as Hagia Sophia, the Blue Masque, and Topkapi Palace. We did cross over the bride to the Asian side by bus but I will count that via another blog entry later…

World Travel – Greece 2007 – Part II

We finally leave Athens and head initially south to the Temple of Poseidon. We then head back north and cross the Corinth Canal to Peloponnisos. Here we see the Temple of Apollo, Mycenae Line Gate and ruins and the Beehive Tombs, the Amphitheater of Epidaurus, then onto Nafplio where we see the Bourtzi Fortress and then pass though Mikine / Mykhnia on our way to Dytiki Ellada.

It so amazing to see so much ancient history that you studied as a child in person like this.
