My 2017 trips in photos

Hello everybody and welcome back to my blog. I hope the New Year is treating you well so far and I wish you lots of adventures in 2018. Don’t wait for anything to just happen, keep on working and create your own opportunities.

Cruise 2017 – Nafplio

I’m back with a new post! As you can see, I’m having a hard time sticking to a schedule. Hopefully that will change soon. I hope you’re ready for a new story about yet another city in Greece. This was our forth stop on our cruise over the summer – Nafplio. This city is considered one of the most beautiful in Greece. I’d say that’s arguable, I’ve seen lots of other cities that I found even more beautiful but Greece is a beautiful country and like I said before, you can never go wrong. It’s a bigger city than the ones I’ve talked about before.

Things to see

It’s a bigger city than the ones I’ve talked about before. However, I can’t say I know many individual things to see, but there are a couple of big interest points I can think of. This was another stop where the ship couldn’t come too close to the shore so we had to take tender boats. The first thing we noticed was a beautiful “fortress island”, very small and inviting – aka the water castle of Bourtzi.

Cruise 2017 – Katakolon

Welcome back! It’s been a while, I know, sorry about that. I thought I wouldn’t have that much to say this time but it looks like I can ramble on quite a bit and hopefully it will be useful for some of you.
So our third stop was Katakolon (also known as Katakolo) – a small town in Greece.

The port

Katakolon’s port is apparently a popular stop for cruise ships. It’s the closest one to Olympia. The actual town of Katakolon is small and without any special landmarks, but it’s very charming nonetheless. When you get off the ship you can see right there a few bars/restaurants/cafes where you can relax (if you didn’t enough down time on the ship :D) and have a drink, eat or whatever. We didn’t have to use tender boats this time, so it was possible to go back and forth and have lunch on the ship without any hassle. There’s free wifi at the very first souvenir shop you’ll see, but I bet you can find it at every restaurant. Once you get off the ship you’ll see people waiting there who are offering different tours to Olympia and other destinations.

Cruise 2017 – Kefalonia

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. As you may already know I was on a cruise during the summer. I’ve already talked about the first 2 stops (Venice & Albania), so now… lets move on to the next one: Argostoli, Kefalonia, Greece. I’ve always had a soft spot for Greece and my admiration for Greek nature grew over the years.

Kefalonia is a small island and you can’t go wrong in your choice of island when it comes to Greece. Oh man! I haven’t seen all the Greek islands but I plan to (someday). Our ship brought us to Argostoli, a town in Kefalonia. The view was amazing from the port by the way.
