A description of a Grecian and Turkey land tour is presented in this book, encompassing cities and places circumvented by the Aegean Sea. The cities, towns and places were all reached by a combination of tour bus and cruise ship. The adventure begins in Athens, Greece, and crosses Central Greece reaching Delphi. From there it continues down into southwestern Greece into the town of Nafpaktos, on the Corinthian Strait. Ferrying across the strait into Peloponnese, the city of Nafplio is visited along with the Mycenae and Epidaurus ruins. From here the adventure retracts back to Athens by crossing over the Corinthian Canal. Here, mode of travel is switched from bus to cruise ship, Ocean Misty. The Grecian visit is continued when Santorini, Delos, and Mykonos Islands were all visited. Next the island of Rhodes, bordering the bottom of the Aegean Sea was reached. After this, Ephesus, Turkey, was approached by ship, visited, and from there the Ocean Misty was en route to the Dardanelles, the strait leading into the Sea of Marmara, thereby soon reaching Istanbul, Turkey, which was the adventure's highlight, including a visit to the Blue Mosque and a cruise up the Bosphorus to the Black Sea. The area is well explored in the writings of this book, a pleasure to read about these countries around the Aegean Sea.
