Diving into Ancient Greece and Exploring Athens!

At the beginning of May, I was lucky enough to experience our small-ship cruise on the Aegean Sea. The cruise itself was unbelievable and it allowed me to travel to some wonderful Greek Islands. Certainly, an experience I’ll remember and cherish for years to come!

Unlike traditional cruises, a small-ship cruise focuses on the destination, not the journey, but one of the highlights of this trip for me was having time pre-and post-cruise to explore the ancient city of Athens. So, I thought I’d share some of my highlights, hints and tips!

Cruising around Greece

As we drifted leisurely past a tiny Greek island and the sun shone down on the water, small diamond-like sparkles seem to bubble on the surface.  It was one of those moments when I thought for the millionth time… ‘I absolutely love my job!’

After a dreary and damp UK winter, I was thrilled to learn that my next work trip was going to be sampling our new holiday - Small-ship cruise on the Aegean Sea

Gozo boot camp week

I had been to Gozo once before several years ago with my family and my two favourite things about this island destination were the food and the wonderful climate! I jumped at the opportunity to go back to Gozo but this time it would be a very different type of holiday.

I was set to join a short break focused entirely on improving my overall health and well being... (So probably much less pasta, pizza and ice cream than during my last holiday!).

I met the small group the first night after we had the chance to check into the beautiful Bella Vista Farmhouses. There were all kinds of people in my group of varying age, physical ability and also trepidation of what the week ahead would hold.
