Jay Weber's 2012 "Trip of a Lifetime"
Greece and The Magical Greek Isles
Sept. 6-16, 2012
Aboard The M/S Galileo
THANK YOU for requesting information on my 2012 "Trip of a Lifetime", which departs just 6 months from now. Because of the nature of the trip, this year we have a built-in cap of just 46 listeners, and many of those spots have already been reserved by past travelers. Because of this limit, I urge you to take time now to look at the trip details and make an early decision to join me.
We are going to historic Greece and the magical Greek Isles, and we're seeing this incredibly beautiful and fabled part of the world the best possible way.by private yacht. That's right. We've chartered a classic Greek motorsailer to take us island hopping through this Aegean paradise. Our 11-day adventure is set for September 6 - 16, 2012.
Because we have our own boat, it's going where I want it to go.so long as the Captain agrees. That means if we want to pull into a secluded cove and go for a swim, we'll do it. I'm told we can literally jump off the side into the turquoise waters if we want to, and I can hardly wait!
Imagine sailing to popular islands like Mykonos, Santorini and Crete, plus little island gems the big ships simply have to pass by. Besides seeing the beauty of the islands and their picturesque towns and villages, we'll learn of their history, which can be traced back to the 7th Millennium B.C. At some of our stops, we'll be free to explore on our own. At others, there'll be optional tours to take you to historical treasurers that abound in these islands. Each day, we'll be on our own for either lunch or dinner ashore - a great opportunity to join other listeners and savor the local culture and cuisine at a local taverna, cafe, or restaurant.
Following our week aboard the m/s Galileo, we'll tour the city of Athens including the new Acropolis Museum. We'll ascend the Acropolis where the backdrop for our group photo will be one of the most famous sights in all of antiquity - the Parthenon. We'll spend two nights in the heart of Athens in a 4-star hotel that is perfectly situated within walking distance of the Old Town, known as the Plaka, a place filled with tavernas, music and terrific shopping.
Trusted friends Dennis and Peggy Crull, the owners of Cruise & Tour, have put all this together. The Crulls have arranged and accompanied all of my "Trips of a Lifetime." They have sailed on the Galileo and when they suggested it for my 2012 trip, my initial reaction was, "Do we have to wait until September 2012?" But we must.
Greece has been on my "bucket list" for as long as I can remember. If it's on yours, let's check it off together. Wanna go? Call Cruise & Tour TODAY at 1 (800) 383-3131 to hold your place. Don't dilly-dally. Because of the limited number of cabins that remain, this opportunity could be gone in the blink of an eye.
It's going to be an amazing adventure. I sincerely hope you'll join me.
P.S. Mark Twain must have been thinking about this kind of trip when he said, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
