In January 2009, we decided to take an off-season cruise to the Mediterranean. We took this trip for a number of reasons - it would call at a number of ancient cities which we had not visited before, and it was very cheap! Here are some of our thoughts and photographs.
Barcelona - Moroccan rock and psychedelic architecture.
Rome - Museums and rain.
Athens - Antiquities and relics.
Ephesus (Izmir) - Ruined cities and carpets.
Cairo (Alexandria) - Pyramids and nervous eating.
Valetta - Crowds, toys and architecture.
