Welcome! Καλωσορίζω

So you want to follow us on our trip to the UK and Greece the summer of 2006? I'll try to post every couple of days to let you know how the family is doing.

Right now my ambitions are high: I want to post pictures, maybe some video, and also some descriptions of where we go, who we meet, and what we eat. However, I may just find myself too busy loafing at the beach drinking Amstel or raki (local alcohol).

Here is our short itinerary:

20 June leave San Jose, fly to London via Chicago
21 June arrive LHR
27 June leave Manchester, arrive Heraklion/Iraklio at noon
4-5 July Matala, Crete. This is the southern village where Terry and I met way back on 24 March 1989.
5-18 July in Hania/Chania, actually in the small town of Kastelli-Kissamous west of Hania.
18 July leave Heraklion, arrive Manchester
31 July leave the UK
1 August arrive San Jose

I still have loads of planning to do, like finding us a hotel in Iraklio. I'm also under the delusion that we may find a cheap, last-minute vacation for a week, so we can ditch the UK for someplace like Ibiza or Barcelona or Tenerife or whatever. Wish us luck.

Feel free to leave a comment or two. I'll do my best to read them when we reach a village or taverna that has Internet access.

Yiassou! Γειασου

Yeah, but don't forget we're going to nag you if you don't get going on that book.

Plus you've got reading to do.

So lay off the raki, y'hear?

I might need nagging. Especially if I find myself spending too much time loafing on the beach or hanging out in the tavernas.

I can't wait to eat fat green olives every day.
