Vacation 2007

As a followup to an earlier post on the cruise I’ll be taking in 2007, it looks like the vote is in, and we will be doing a Greek Island cruise. Instead of a 7 night cruise, however, it will be a 12 night cruise. The particular cruise we are looking at now has the following itinerary:

Day 1: Venice, Italy (using ship as hotel)
Day 2: Venice, Italy (departing at 1 PM)
Day 3: Dubrovnik, Croatia
Day 4: Corfu, Greece,
Day 5: Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Day 6: Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Day 7: Mykonos, Greece
Day 8: Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Day 9: Rhodes, Greece
Day 10: Santorini, Greece
Day 11: At Sea
Day 12: Naples/Capri, Italy
Day 13: Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy

The nice thing about the cruise is that I’ll be able to knock off two continents in two weeks, since, I beleive, Turkey is considered to be in Asia. It also means, if things stay on schedule, that my parents will celebrate their 40th anniversary in Mykonos, Greece. I wonder if, 40 years ago, they ever imagined spending their 40th anniversary in Greece? It makes me wonder: where will I be spending my 40th anniversay? On the moon, perhaps? Mars? That would be pretty cool!
