Jun 27, 2007 - Ferry, ferry, land

We woke up aroudn 5 am and realized the sun was just comming up so we headed to the other side of the boat for a good view of the sunrise. We waited for quite a while and it never seemed to come. Also, the wind was soo strong it was difficult to stand outside without the shelter. We gave up and went back to catch a couple more zzz's. When we got up we headed back to the self serve restaurant to grab an early morning breakfast. Jaycee was soo excited beacuse they had cereal with COLD MILK!! It was fantabulous! This was the first time in...

Well, after a long day's journey, I have finally made it to Urbino. Although it was hard, it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Jul 12, 2005 - Patras to Ancona To Venice

This morning the sky is cloudy and we can see rain on the horizon. We showered and went to breakfast. By the time we finish it is raining and it us very windy, I choose to come back to the cabin and catch up on the last five days diary for you all. We save each day in Word and then transfer to the Lonely Planet site when internet is available which we have discovered is like finding a needle in a haystack. We will be docking at Ancona Italy at 3.30 this afternoon and then rejoining our Driver Enzo and our coach for a drive to Mestre, Venice...
