I LOVE your Idyll people wisdom!!!! Welcome to the Cafe. We can't wait to hear more words of wisdom. What is the latest Untour you took, and what are your memories of it! You could try adding your first blog post: I am sure your ability to write so well would mean your observations be appreciated by many.
Wow, Vickie. I think that's an amazing piece you wrote about "Idyll People". I almost want to print it out and put it next to my desk to remember how the "real" Untourists are. Thanks for that bright spot in the day today
Vickie -- thanks for your response. You will love Nafplio -- I'm sure of it. We stayed in the Casandra apartment -- very accomodating. Thanks also for the article on who is a Untours traveler. I truly described the type of person who values and benefits from this type of travel. I have printed the article and plan to share it with friends who have expressed interest in traveling with Untours.
Thanks...I wrote that many years ago!
I'd love to ask you some specifics about Nafplio...I don't know if this is really the right venue....do you subcribe to the Idyll Chatboard? I could post my questions to you there or you could email me privately.
After Nafplio, we are spending two nights in Athens and then taking a quick (very quick!) cruise to some of the islands.
My husband and I were in Greece in Sept. 2007. You will love Nafplio and Christos is a delight. We did a couple of overnights. Greece can be a challange driving, but it is lovely. We added 4 nights in Athens (split) and 3 on Santorini. Everything was fantastic. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
Vickie, I just looked at all your photos of Andalucia and they're absolutely amazing. I made many of them favorites of mine so I can go back and view them whenever I want to relive memories of this beautiful place. We were there two years ago and loved it. Especially enjoyed your photos of Priego de Cordoba - what a wonderful little town. Seville was my favorite big city. We didn't make it to Barcelona - maybe someday!
I'm not sure if you got my last comment (which I wasn't finished with before the computer did something). But, for a point and shoot only, your pictures are really nice.
I usually carry a point and shoot and a Nikon with a 24-200mm zoom lens. This seems to work for most things. I'd love to take a tripod, but haven't figured out how to get one into my suitcase. When I hike in the mountains, I'm usually pretty loaded down with camera gear, extra clothes, and a 1.5 liter Rivella bottle with water. It makes for a heavy back pack, but walking sticks help out quite a bit.
