Athens, the third day of the expedition 31-may-2002

Akropol (Grecja) - Kliknij !Time quickly flies when you're travelling. Especially when you're asleep. We've already reached the famous Pireus, Athens isn't far away. Today we were sightseeing the Acropolis ruins, they're worth seeing. In the attached travel chronicle Maciek wrote a more detailed account of our travel. I'd like to propose to you visiting the second tourist route in this region. Firstly we got a last minute package to Crete for just 1 100 PLN. After sightseeing the island we went to the Rhode island. The ferry ticket cost 21 EURO. One has to remember that the ferry travels only once a week. The sea voyage is very beautiful - it takes one whole day. The boat stops at a few islands. The ferry has air-conditioning. I recommend taking a sun-block because the non-stop shifting from the hot outside into the cool indoors can not only cause a flue but also a change a skin colour. After visiting the spectacular Rhode island we went by a night cruise to Athens. It runs once a day. The time of the whole voyage is 15 hours and costs 25 EURO. After sightseeing the Pireus harbour and Athens we took another night cruise, this time to Iraklion, Crete. Altogether, for about 1 700 PLN you can visit everything. We invite you to the gallery with Acropolis and to Maciek's memories. Click on a photo!

Nowy Jork, wci±ż ten sam 29-may-2002

Nowy JOrk - Kliknij !Time flies. Already eight months have passed since the 11th of September 2001. Unfortunately global terrorism is still a present-day problem. Some can adjust, but others are uneasy while they travel by air. Unfortunately this condition also reflects on tourism statistics, causing airfares to rise (because of increased security and insurance taxes). For now there are no signs that airfares will change. This situation is very like an improperly cured disease - it's at the worst phase when it's a chronic disease, or possibly when it takes us by surprise - infecting us when we don't know about it. In our gallery we would like to present some 'friendly' photos courtesy of our correspondent Elżbieta from New York. We believe that after looking at them, cause for reflection will not escape you.

Wyprawa Kreta 2002 24-may-2002

Kliknij !We meet again by the computer screen. Recently (4-18th of May) we made a journey to the Mediterranean Sea to check out the conditions of travelling by ferry. We have returned with vivid memories of our voyage. Yet one must remember not only the splendours of the travel but also it's cost. For example the cost of travelling by ferry from Crete to Athens is 21 Euro. One can also buy a cabin for 38 Euro. Our trip itinerary was: Warsaw-Crete-Athens-Naples-Sicily-Sardinia-Naples-Capri-Sorento-the Pompey-Naples-Athens-Cyprus-Athens- the island of Rhodes-Crete-Warsaw. We don't recommend such a tempo for travelling, but time was on our back. We brought home 2000 photos and 15 hours of video recordings. Gradually we'll make these materials available to you. They'll be updated with the ferry schedules and current costs. Today we attach the first part of the Crete chronicle, written by Maciek. We await your suggestions about what sort of info interest you most from out trip. Our first gallery presents the first photos - a sort of forerunner of what you'll be able to see. At the same time we would like to underline the prime organization of the Big Blue company that prepared our flight on the route Warsaw-Iraklion-Warsaw. I invite you to the first gallery and first memories of Maciek. Every second day we'll present the next parts of our Mediterranean chronicle. Next Monday - Crete. Click on a photo!
