And now for something completely different >> the Mediterranean

SCIntroWe just returned from over two and a half weeks in the Mediterranean.  We sailed on a ship call the Star Clipper, a 360 foot, four masted barkentine. We left from Athens where we spent an extra day before departure resting from air travel and visiting the Acropolis Museum.

Our itinerary took us as far south as Santorini (Thera) and ended up in Monaco two weeks later where we spent an extra day to visit the Oceanographic Museum and to see the changing of the Principality Guard. [We also visited Athens; Piraeus (Port of Athens), Greece; Monemvasia, Greece; Pilos, Greece; Taormina, Sicily, Italy; Lipari and  Capri, Italy; Ponza, Italy; Palmarola, Italy; Civitavecchia, Italy; ROME; Portoferraio, Elba, Italy  Calvi, Corsica; Porto Vecchio, Corsica, France; Costa Smeralda, Sardinia, Italy; Calvi, Corsica, France; Monte Carlo, Monaco and Nice, France]

We would have blogged underway but the ship only had satellite wifi and of the 140 passengers it seemed a quarter we’re always trying to use it. As a consequence even one of our over 3000 photographs would have taken almost an hour to upload. At 6 euro per hour, think $8+, this was simply a non-starter. We could have done text posts, but without the pictures we would have needed several thousand words and those probably would have taken an hour to upload as well.

Over the next several days as we sort through photographs and get back in boat rhythm, we will post what we would have when we were there.
