With the entire world closed, it looks like it may be awhile before I can do any traveling. With that in mind, I’m re-posting from my original blog. I created the blog to keep family informed while I took my mom on a cruise to Greece.

Day 8:

Today we are headed into Katakolon. Last night we sailed through a storm. Not too bad, but enough the lightening and thunder kept me awake. Woke up several times, didn’t realize my watch had stopped until about 10 am, which was the start time of the cocktail reception we were invited to. Oops.

We had dinner in the dining room for the first time last night. Usually they seat people of like nationality at the same table, so naturally we were sitting with a couple from Austria and one from Germany. Turns out they all speak English so we were able to talk . Very nice people.

Most of the passengers on the ship seem to be Italian. The next largest group appears to be the French, followed by the Germans. English speaking passengers are few, which makes anyone from the UK an instant friend. Only met a couple of folks from the US, interestingly one gentleman was stationed at George AFB in the 60’s. He deployed to Vietnam from George and his wife moved out of the area, They now live in Oklahoma City.
