I’m back!! My Jewel of the Seas Greek Isles Travel Blog Round 2


Recommended Posts

I admire you for your dedication to the gym.  We did a TA in April and I was sure I'd use the gym every sea day (we had 6 in a row).  I went a grand total of one time, lol!  I did stick to a mostly low carb diet on the ship (with a few desserts here and there, but no bread, pasta, or potatoes), but only saw the gym once!


thank you! stay tuned because we only made it until about day 4 with our gym dedication [emoji1787]

I'm enjoying round 2 of your travel blog very much! Your pictures are beautiful and I love the top you had on in Chania.

thank you! Nate came home a few months ago and handed it to me and said he got it at Big R. I knew instantly I wanted it for the trip

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen!  I see so many cats in people's Greece trip reports.  That kitty looks so comfortable!! 

SOOOOO MANY CATS! I finally stopped taking pictures of them because they were endless

dinner that night was nothing to write home about...actually nothing was really exciting that we had had on the ship so far.

I pretty much had the same thing for breakfast every day...which of course I do at home so I don’t know why it bugs me on vacay [emoji2368]

The next day found us in Mykonos, a port we had loved last year.
We woke at 6 and saw the sunrise. If you’ve read some of my previous reports you’ll know we generally not up with the sunrise on vacation...or at least happy about it...but on this trip we saw more sunrises than we ever have.

No pictures of my breakfast...it was pretty much the same every day at that point. got off ship at 7:30 n realized the seabus didn’t start until 9...we were a little in a sleep haze irritation and decided to just start walking. google maps said it wasn’t more than 30 minutes to town. This turned out to be one amazing accident let me tell y’all!

We got to old town and it was vacant! The only signs of life were the fishermen and shop owners getting ready for the day. This was prime photo opportunity. I knew I wanted photos of little venice that we had missed last time so I told Nate to navigate and find it for me.

The man in the shop under the windmills was so kind! I told him I remembered his little shop from our visit last year and had to come back for another magnet...after I checked out he gave me a keychain and thanked me for returning.

This beautiful Windstar yacht was tendering

There were still very few people out! We were able to get people free shots at the windmills!

Your pictures of Mykonos look amazing!
You said the food on Jewel was blah?
Did you try any specialty restaurants on Jewel?


thank you!

We ate our leisurely meal and started walking again...wanting to find something particular.

Who remembers this shot from last year?

I semi remembered the stores around where we had taken that picture (landmarks are my thing right?!) and once I spotted one of them I knew we were close.

 

WINNER!

There’s a windmill at the very top of the hill and we decided to hike up there

We got back on ship, ate a snack, hit the gym n then we’re going to go to the pool but Nate suggested we go down to the little beach directly in front of the ship. It was 4pm and BOB was 6:30. Off we went and it was incredible! Mykonos could not have been any better
