Travel Diary | Rome, Athens and Ephesus, Part Two

Yes – I’ve done it!  I have finally been to Turkey, the place and not the bird. And I finally get to blog about the second leg of our cruise around Europe from back in July. Sticking my neck off our cruise cabin’s balcony to feel the salty breeze off the coast of Chania, Crete blowing in my hair, thousands of years worth of ruins in Athens, a road made of solid marble in Ephesus, the freshest greek salad and the most fragrant gyros in Turkey were just a few of the savory morsels I can treasure in addition to these sweet photographic memories. Enjoy!
