- 2022 Fall Voyage
We spent our final day together as a crew exploring Athens. Panagiotis, an old friend from my last time in Greece, spent the first part of the day with us taking us through the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. The Parthenon was quite impressive, as were all of the details he shared with us about life in Greece in the 5th century B.C.. We walked through the windy, narrow streets - making our way to Syntagma Square and then to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to witness a remarkable changing of the guard ceremony. Back on board we took showers, finished packing and then headed out to dinner for a last bite of authentic Greek food. The crew has all come to enjoy this food, and everyone had some version of gyros (the pitas always have fries rolled into them), tzatziki, pita, saganaki, and a Greek salad (tomato, peppers, onions, olives, and a slab of feta on top, but no lettuce). A post-dinner walk and some gelato landed us back on board for closing activities. Hard to believe by this time tomorrow the crew will be enroute to school.
