Sep 11, 2015 - Swimming in the Aegean Sea

Sailed off the Aegina where we will have 2 hours. Nothing is near the port so we had 3 options to choose from: 1. Tour the ruins and church. No, we have seen enough old rocks. 2. Panorama bus tour for photos and a stop at the local fish market to sample some seafood. No, we have had enough bus riding and Heather hates food from the sea. 3. Beach for swimming. YES! Got on the tender and went to the beach for 1 hour. Once you got past the stones and algae in the first 100 feet the bottom was soft sand. The water was comfortable and very...

Greece is the Word

Sep 19, 2011 - Athens to Aegina

After waking early we headed off to the supermarket for our big shop before setting off on our journey. The shop opened at 8.30 and we wanted to be in and out as soon as possible so we could be off by 10.00am.

Our Canadian friends are pretty keen on their beer so this could be an...

Feb 28, 2009 - Greece

We spent 5 days in Greece in February. It was great. In addition to seeing Corinth and the Acropolis (Parthenon), we went to a nearby island for 3 days. The weather was cool, and we had a super time. I even bought a few children's books on the Greek alphabet. Enjoy the photos.

Adventures with Kat

Aug 24, 2007 - St. Nektarios

Well, it has been a good 2 1/2 weeks since we left behind the quiet island of Aegina, but our experience at the Holy Trinity Monastery there will likely stay with us for a long time. With the idea to stay at a monastery while we were in Greece, we decided to forego the party isles and set out for Aegina at the recommendation of our dear Margo and only the name of the priest at St. Nektarios. What followed was I think one of the most humbling and funny experiences of my life. Speaking about 2 words of Greek each we showed up on the secluded...
