Another check-mark on "the list"

22 April 08
leaving Nauplia, en route to Athens - Greece

What a great day and a beautiful city! Nauplia is an ancient old town that used to be the capital of Greece back in the day. The city has since re-built and modernized, and is just adorable. The sea side has shops, fabulous outdoor restaurants and bars and some great buildings as well. The outdoor restaurants reminded me of the Champs-Elysees in Paris; but more on a small town scale. I think that it might be a happenin' place to be for some nightlife!

Here are the pics I took today:


Athens is tomorrow .. going on a half day tour to the sights .. Acropolis, Parthenon, Olympic Stadium .. very excited!!

Oh and guess what?!? My fan died :( I had it up in Matt's cabin as his cabin is like an oven .. it had been working great and then last night .. dead. Out of nowhere. Matt said he just unplugged it and plugged it back in - wasn't there at the time, so not sure what *really* happened LOL Tried it in my cabin to no avail. So sad ... I carried that fan across 3 continents to get it on the ship! And I love it .. I am going to ask the Electro Techs to take a look at it and see if it is really dead or maybe an easy fix. If its dead .. I will have to see what I can do about finding a fan in port. Otherwise, I will have to wait till I get to Asda back in Southampton. :sigh:
