Six, what an exciting trip. Did you plan it yourself via internet? Or did you have a travel agent put it together. I don't usually find travel agencies too helpful for such trips. But one never knows.
I have an itinerary of a trip that friend did a few years ago to Chile & Argentina...incredible. She did all the research via internet and booked it all herself. It's one I want to experience one of these years.
While my friends did this trip, I was in Turkey. Such an incredible country and so much history & ruins...just as many as in Greece. We hired private drivers, private guides. Travelled from Istanbul (Dalobochi Palace, Topkopi Palace, Cistern, Blue Mosque, Cathedrals, & Bosphorus River cruise) to Izmur, to Selchuk, Euphesis, Marmaris, Bodrum, Dalyan. Awesome. If you ever want to go sailing on the Mediterranean Sea I can set you up on a magnificent Goulet! :-) If only I could retain 1/10 of the history I learned when I left. You'd love it! If you ever want to book such a trip, I'd highly recommend Vicki (Australian) & her husband Cem (Turkish, pronounced gem) at Kontact Turkey.
Dayum Six, just read about your "adventure" trip to Venezuela!
Talk about green with envy, or is that jungle scurvy??
Any exciting moments?
Anacondas slithering thru camp?
Or giant Banana spiders moseying about in your shoes??
