May 14, 2004 - Paris/Athens

Up right around 8:00, showered, packed, and checked out by the 9:00 am (ridiculous!) check out time. To the main train station where I grabbed a train to Charles de Gaulle airport. (I like France but they really need to work on their signs.) Took me 20 minutes just to figure out where I was, let alone get to where I needed to be. Turns out I was in a pretty good spot. Found the American Airlines office and changed my flight on 7/6 to 6/17 instead. Am looking forward to getting home a bit earlier than originally planned. Found the correct...

Apr 17, 2004 - Istanbul to Athens

This morning we were picked up just after 7.00 am for our transfer to Istanbul Airport. We flew with Olympic Airways to Athens and had arranged a transfer to our Hotel, the President as part of our cruise package. The President Hotel was located somewhat out of the centre of town and was host to a group of children participating in the World Synchronised Swimming Championships. Therefore security was tight and on entering and leaving the Hotel, any bags or coats had to be put through an X-ray machine. After checking in, we took a walk down...
