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.

World Travel – Italy 2004 – Part V

When you think of Rome I’m sure most think of some very specific places and yes we did spend time visiting these places. Did you know that in the Roman Colosseum that staged “Navel” Battles? Yes, I mean they filled the Colosseum with water, put two of more ships inside and staged a fight. They also were able to cover the Colosseum just like they do today in modern football stadiums; and it was the Navy crews that did the work as well. Who would have thought!
