Somewhere in Mediterranean

It was my first official experience on a cruise. The first was when I was still a teenager and went to vietnam for a three days mini cruise. Our port was in Rome so we needed to board the train from Florence to Rome, which I assumed to be quite simple, as the tickets were already purchased in advance. When we arrived at the train station, there was no help desk for the train company we purchased from. In fact the only "help" was a large sheet of yellowed paper with microscopic writings on it telling us the schedule of the trains. Our train had a two to three hour delay, but we had no options but to patiently wait. There were so much confusion about what station our train is located , after inquiring many people the cleaning staff kindly pointed me out to the right direction. We needed to haul our suitcases, which were missing one of their wheel, up and down long flights of stairs. In the chaos my dad lost his pricy head massager which he used for the first time.  After many delays that we found it a miracle that we made it on to the cruise ship. When we were finally offered champagne upon arrival of the cruise it was really a cause to celebrate . 


First stop is my favourite island in Greece~ It was more then I imagined . Santorini is the beautiful result of a volcanic eruption. Every angle in this white castle offers a spectacular view of the Aegean sea. There are tones of space for everyone and it seems time also took a short break with wine and seafood on this island.
