Living aboard the National Geographic Endeavour II in the Galapagos
Posted by Maria Angeles

I was lucky enough to live aboard the Lindblad Expeditions National Geographic Endeavor II  for a week, November 10-18, 2017 in the Galapagos Islands. This is a trip that handpicks you, it draws the most authentically intrigued and nature loving group of people from all around the world - although mostly American and the occasional local or foreigner.

I’m not going to give you any information you can find yourself online. I’m just going to share with you that this is a trip with the best ratio between learning, adventure and people-to-people connection. Like everything in life, you get what you put into it. As a guest you can tell that the crew truly loves their job, from the kitchen to the hotel management to the zodiac drivers and naturalists - I could see how seeing an awe-struck face regularly can be infectious and feed your soul.

Dale and Diane Olsen's Italy/Greece Cruise
aboard the "Norwegian Spirit"
October-November 2017

In late October and early November we flew to Rome, Italy and cruised the eastern Mediterranean aboard the "Norwegian Spirit" (NCL) from Civitavecchia to Greece and back. After spending three days in Civitavecchia (old port town), relaxing and visiting nearby Tarquinia (former Etruscan town), we cruised to Crete, Rhodes, Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini in Greece; Malta; and Sicily (Taormina, and Mt. Etna), Pompeii, Naples, in Italy, returning to Civitavecchia. We concluded our wonderful vacation by spending a full day on our own in Rome. The highlights of the trip for us were the Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini. We especially enjoyed the architecture, such as the old windmills in Mykonos (picture 1) and the white-washed houses and chapels on the mountaintops in Santorini (picture 2). Thank you Ruth Rennick and Holiday Cruises & Tours in Tallahassee for helping us arrange our memorable adventure.

The play is now performed repeatedly in every year ending in zero.

Bermuda is a British island territory in the North Atlantic Ocean known for its pink-sand beaches such as Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay. Its massive Royal Naval Dockyard complex combines modern attractions like the interactive Dolphin Quest with maritime history at the National Museum of Bermuda. The island has a distinctive blend of British and American culture, which can be found in the capital, Hamilton.

The centerpiece of this 600-acre private reserve is the Rio Perdido, which means “lost river”. This 150-foot, thermo-mineral gorge that draws energy from deep magma flows, will cast its spell on anyone that descends to its magical waters for the first time. It's a completely natural and inspiring setting, unlike any other place on the planet.
