Getting Ready for Our Greek Cruise! - Geek Turned Athlete

Getting Ready for Our Greek Cruise!

So far Steve and I have just been enjoying each other’s company for the past 36 hours. I am so happy my love is finally home! We are off to catch a flight to board our Greek Cruise this morning. I think that it will be the perfect chance for us to bond since he was gone for long.

First, we fly into Venice:



Then, to Split, Croatia



Corfu, Greece



Santorini Island, GreeceFira_Santorini,_Greece.jpg


Mykonos, Greecemykonos_port_2.jpg


Iraklion, Crete, GreeceCrete.jpg


Then, one day “at sea” before heading back to Venice where we will catch a plane to Rome where we will spend about a day roaming around there, then hit up Pompei, then back to Rome where we will fly home. We are so stoked!

We both plan on working out while we are on the cruise, but not as much as we usually do. We are hoping that this cruise will be better than our last one! We had a good time on the first one, but the food was horrible on the ship! We both lost weight, it was that bad.

I had a great Indian Dal recipe to share with you for Foodie Friday today, but I took the photos without a memory card, and I can’t figure out how to retrieve them on my DSLR. Hmmph. That will have to wait! I will leave you a pic of the red lentils that I used!


I will write as soon as we get back in about a week and a half! I have a couple of guest posts that will be posting in the mean time! I hope everyone has a great rest of your week!

What are your future traveling plans?

    I hope you have a great trip- I’m so freaking jealous- Croatia is amazing!

    Remember that walking form your room to the bar counts as a workout on a cruise- and sitting down and getting out of your chair by the pool is like doing a set of squats!

    Can’t wait to hear about it! xo

    AHHHH! your holiday sounds awesome! I’ve been planning on going to Greek islands this summer with my boyfriend, but we have not decided yet. Asia, Caribbean, Greece, Portugal?! too many options and not enough money 😉

    ENJOY YOUR FANTASTIC HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Had I known that you were going to Croatia, I would have given you an order for several cases of Plavac. ;^)

    Seriously, enjoy the reunion. We know how it is.

    Great to meet you on Thursday!!!!

    Those were amazing photos of Greece. They are very inviting. I never thought Greece could be that dazzling. Surely, Greece will be even more exceptional with you lovebirds staying there! Have a great trip! Can’t wait for your blog on how your days and nights in Greece would be… Be safe!
