Europe in 10 1/2 Days.

January 14, 2011

The next series of post will do with our recent trip to Europe via a trip we scheduled with thefinestkind.net,  which is a tour company run by our daughter Becca and Jesper her special friend. I know that there will be bias on my part but I will try to keep that at a minimum.

It was nice to start our trip right from the Watertown, SD airport, it's less than 2 miles from our home. The flight took off slightly after 6 am, which would be a start of a long day(actually we didn't get off the plane in Crete until the next day).  The flight went from Watertown to Minneapolis to JFK to Athens to Crete. Our landing time was around 2 pm local time, so that makes it a total of 32 hours since the departure. Not an easy trip.  The photo below is Abby in JFK.

Becca and Jesper were at the airport with the rental, we loaded it up and headed to the rental villa on the west end of Crete, in Sfinari. This took us about 1 hour to get there. The villa was just beautiful, and was ocean view.

More to follow in the following days.
