OUr group of 40 will be flying from San Francisco to Frankfurt to Barcelona today (for arrival tmorrow at our destination). We spend two nites in Barcelona then board our ship, the Insignia, for a ten day cruise to Athens. Will post a summary of the journey on my return with some pictures. I'm waiting for my transportation to the airport. c.i.

I´m now in Barcelona at a internet cafe on Ramblas Avenue, the main pedestrian street in Barcelona. We visited two wineries today on an optional tour, the Freixenet and Torres wineries. The first one has over 180 million bottles of wine stored in their celler. Amazing! Dinner time starts at 830PM here, and it´s only a little after 7, so I´m waiting for dinner time. Barcelona is a great city for walking in the evening. This area has a lot of college students. Will write a summary when I get back.

Francis, Thank you!

C.i., as usual, your trip sounds so tempting. I have heard many times about Barcelona being one of the best cities in Europe. I'll be anxious to hear your descriptions.

A cruise to Athens? I'm sure I'd think that I'd died and gone to heaven. We can always count on you to post wonderful photos and your travelogue is professional. Have you ever thought of putting it all together and publishing what would amount to a tour of the world?

Hi all, but especially to Onyx cause I haven't seen hear for awhile. I'm at the port for Rome right now, and with some time before our ship sails tonite, thought I'd check out my emails and a2k.

I just started to jot down some notes last nite, but our days have been filled with so much activity, I'm always exhausted by the end of the day.

Adios for now. t.

Got home early noon today. It was a long day, so I'll just say "hi" and try to jot down some notes tomorrow.

Thanks for all the well wishes for a good journey/voyage. It was more than grand.
