GREEK ISLE TRIP IN JANUARY 2000
I retired in 1999 after over thirty years at the Boeing Company. In the year 2000 I had the opportunity to take two trips abroad. This is the trip to the Greek Isles.

KNOSSOS
Knossos, once the capital city of the prehistoric Minoan civilization.
THE RUINS OF EPHESUS
The high point of the trip was Ephesus. The ruins of Ephesus are magnificent. The city was began in 2000 BC and was occupied by the Ionian's and later the Romans. A long history of civilization
THE RUINS OF EPHESUS
The Library of Celsus, built in the 2nd century by the Romans.
THE RUINS OF EPHESUS
Curetes Street along marble way.
THE RUINS OF EPHESUS
The Temple of Hadrian.
THE RUINS OF EPHESUS
The Small Theater has been unearthed year after year. The last building alterations were made by Emperor Claudius (41-54 A.D.) It had the capacity of 25,000 spectators.
THE GREEK ISLES TRIP
This was a great trip. The natural beauty of the Isles along with all the history makes for an interesting time.  You can also see I weighted a little more than now.  I guess this was my "fat" period.



If you are looking for a vacation where you don't have to do much to see a great deal, then you should consider the trip to Greek Isles. The boat we were on held only about 600 people which made service all that much better.
