We just returned from an incredible 15-day trip to Israel, Turkey, Cypress, Crete and a few other amazing places. We’ll be posting photos and commentary over the next several days as we digest the amount of input we experienced over that short period of time. This trip was on a cruise ship, which we agree with Rick Steves is more of an exercise in hedonism, with a sampling of destinations, rather than pure traveling. But we certainly cannot discount the opportunity this trip gave us to visit many places within a short time. Hedonism it might be, but our lives were definitely enriched by the experience.
