Star Flyer July 9,2011 Athens to Istanbul

Recommended Posts

Thanks Muskatnuss.

 

Our travel agent got timings from Star Clippers in the UK for both our weeks - they were in the folder with the tickets etc. I think your agent is being lazy LTCOP!

Oh - my travel agent got the times a couple of months ago - but said Star Clippers really wanted to caution that the times are subject to change:-) But it's funny they don't include that with the final documents. I mean I wouldn't have gotten them if my travel agent hadn't specifically contacted them to get the times for me.

Muskatnuss,

 

I enjoyed those links! It was so fun to see the German connection like that! I did not have access to anything online like that! But the times on that site were the same as the ones I had - so that is good:-) I am down to just a couple of days! Tomorrow is doing wash and finishing off my packing. Saturday will be a trip to the hair salon, visiting parents, and last-minute shopping. And we will be ready to leave at 4:30 on Sunday morning!

Hi Muskatnuss!

 

I had fun looking up the German translations. I thought I knew what you said, but wanted to confirm:-) We leave on Sunday morning and will arrive in Athens on Monday morning. It is a long haul to get there from Iowa:-) We are staying a day in Athens and then flying the next day to Santorini. We've been there a couple of times and think it is really something!!! We are staying for 4 nights and then flying back to get on the Star Clipper for 2 weeks. We will also stop there on one of our cruises - but that's just fine:-)

 

Hi Meldreth!

 

We've been talking for such a long time! I can't believe it's almost time for our trips!!!

I have to ask about the vanilla extract? I know they don't grow it in England:-)

 

We are also cloudy and cool and have been most of the spring and into summer. We have had some excessively humid and hot days, but those have been in the minority. I am so hoping for some sun in Greece, but find it hard to believe there is sun anywhere!!!

 

I am done packing! I've got to get the kitchen cleaned up yet tonight (we too are enjoying some red wine with our dinner:-) and we will be out and about bright and early tomorrow (well it won't be bright when we leave:-)

 

I sure hope I somehow can run into the 2 of you on July 9!!!

 

Enjoy that BBQ!

Do hope that Pam has a nice trip. Maybe she will go to an internet cafe and say hello. Vanille extract is exactly what we put in cakes and puddings. In germany I can't get the type I want. Just noticed that I'm down to 1 or 2 Teaspoons!!! Oh, my!!!

 

Just made some Noodle salad for the BBQ. Hope the weather stays! Lamb chops, and stuff. Have to train my tummy for our holiday!!! The food is so good on the Clipper ships.

129. Our favorite. Take it everytime if possible. The bottle should just be about 12 ounces or 250 ml. No more!!!

Thanks in advance.. Just in case you or I just get real busy, wish you a good flight, a great first week without me, a better 2nd week with me, and the best weather ever. Will be wearing an AIDA-cap. Well, maybe I'll put on a t-shirt and shorts.

I have alot of PC work to do before we go. Take care!!!

OK. Thank you for trying. I thought Vanille Extract was just as popular as salt and pepper in the UK. Because of the many West Indians (me) and others. If it causes a problem, don't over exert yourself. You're going on holiday!!!

I'm anxious about who is captain and Tour Manager...oh, am I excited!!!

It is quite common in England.... but we live in a very rural area, I must go to the town to the shops. It is about 8miles drive , and I am going to the Town on Thursday. We have one tiny shop that is open 2 hours a day in our hamlet but they don't sell very much! We are having thunderstorms all day so far today :(. Good job I do not ned any washing to dry! I have bathed the dog and given her a nice haircut ready for her holiday (miniature poodle) this morning. Another job ticked off the list.

I've just checked in my 'pantry' and my Vanilla Extract is in a 50 ml bottle - I have never seen it in a larger bottle. Do you want 2 bottles?
