Kas, Türkiye

Kas, Türkiye We are now a full month into our winter contract, and I still haven’t shared how much we love this place. You may have read that we had a bit if trepidation since this is one place that I had very little knowledge of before we committed – indeed had to commit, toContinue reading “Kas, Türkiye”

Gocek

This was the final week of our amazing summer cruise. Knowing that soon we would be tied to the dock for months, we wanted our final week to be swinging at anchor and untethered to land except by our hook. We specifically wanted to relax and have completely chilled family time with no plans, noContinue reading “Gocek”

Marmaris and Dalyan

Our first trip to Marmaris was a week prior via bus from Selimye to purchase a sim card for internet and it was a good reminder that experiences of a place change largely depending on the circumstances of your visit. We were harried and we had specific tasks on what would be a short visitContinue reading “Marmaris and Dalyan”

Bodrum and Selimiye

Bodrum and Selimye Two of my favorite aspects of living aboard our boat while traveling the world is: 1. Taking all my favorite things – (pillows, boots, blankets, and outerwear for any weather) with me, and 2. Living wherever I feel like living. I’m not someone who loves the city or loves the country butContinue reading “Bodrum and Selimiye”

ISTANBUL!

ISTANBUL, TÜRKIYE Approaching the city of more than 16 million inhabitants, it looks as one might expect. Container ships abound awaiting their turn to offload or upload or transit the Bosporus canal. These ships were EVERYWHERE. Buildings and the beautiful minarets with the domes of the mosques are the most prominent land feature. But surprisinglyContinue reading “ISTANBUL!”

Bozcaada, Ayvalık, Cunda

Trip North to Istanbul One of the most difficult challenges we face is deciding which towns/islands/countries to visit and which to bypass. The sad unavoidable truth that we continue to reconcile is that no matter for how long we plan to visit, we will not see everything we hoped, planned, or dreamed of seeing. ThatContinue reading “Bozcaada, Ayvalık, Cunda”

Santorini- Thira, Oia, Pyrgos Kallistis

While at a cocktail party in Montenegro- before we left on our 3-month tour of Greece, we met someone who had cruised the Cyclades the year before. One of the highlights of enjoying time with other cruisers is the wealth of information we can share with each other from one year to the next. RarelyContinue reading “Santorini- Thira, Oia, Pyrgos Kallistis”

Victron update, Ionian Greece, Boat School

A mere 2 weeks into our cruising season and so much is happening, I’m all ready to make a short post. This is going to have more photos than words but will include a bit of an update on our Victron/Solar upgrade, Jacks school (big changes), and our stops thus far. We left Montenegro onContinue reading “Victron update, Ionian Greece, Boat School”
