A New Reality
Sunday, August 16, 2020
So, OK, you caught me! I was desperate and frantically searching for inspiration to write a blog post. I needed help. The practical half of Roving Raconteurs (that would be Roger) suggested I look through the “idea file.” Now that’s a folder where we stash interesting articles regarding travel. It usually comes into play when we are researching destinations for an upcoming trip. Not quite a situation we’re experiencing during this time of non-travel Covid—but hey, there it was: an article by Gina Kramer, published on the Cruise Critic web site a long time ago, detailing several iconic cruise ports. Places that just should not be missed. Aha!! We had been there, done that, and had the photos!!! A blog post was born.
So, here is an armchair trip to 4 beautiful ports in the Mediterranean:
We hope you enjoyed the photos. We had a great time reliving the drive along the Amalfi Coast; the breathtaking beauty of cruising through the Greek Islands; learning the history of Ephesus and touring through the Holy Land. It’s true, some of these photos date back to 2009 (the most recent is November 2016). But still, just seeing these foreign destinations again makes us realize how eager we are to be out in the world once more! Hopefully you too, feel that pull to adventure.
It may be a blessing, but more likely it’s a curse, that we find beauty in every port we visit. There is ALWAYS something unique and interesting to remember. Of course, when you select destinations based on your interests, how can you be disappointed. The trick is to find the information necessary for decision-making. And with that in mind, may we recommend a couple of web sites that provide a great deal of information geared to travel planning: www.cruisecritic.com for cruises and www.thepointsguy.com for all types of travel. These are 2 sites that will whet your appetite for adventure.
