Day 6 – Mykonos (2007.05.23)

After last night’s bad news, we had to start today off right – with a visit to the breakfast buffet. When I’m home, I usually don’t even eat breakfast, but for some reason I ate about three breakfasts this morning. I pretty much had at least a bite of every sort of breakfast food that exists, and then seconds on the ones I liked the most. Lindsay is <sarcasm>slightly</sarcasm> pickier than me, so a single plate of food was enough for her. Sated, we went off to our first activity of the day, Jackpot Bingo!

Today’s bingo session was Read the rest of this entry »

After writing the previous post, I noticed that our message light was blinking. Figuring it was probably Jeannine, I asked Lindsay to check it. Watching her facial expressions as she listened to the phone, I could tell that something was wrong. Either that, or she was joking around…but at this point I don’t think either one of us would have hazarded a joke on the subject of our luggage…it just wasn’t funny anymore (not that it was ever funny, but it wasn’t as agonizing earlier in the trip). Jeannine’s message was that we’d have to wait until Rhodes (the day after tomorrow) to get our luggage. Apparently there’s an air traffic controller strike, so our bags can’t get to Mykonos. So, hopefully we’ll get them in Rhodes. If anyone’s keeping track, that will be day SEVEN of our dream honeymoon that we finally get our luggage. At this point, I figure it’ll be an act of God that will further delay our luggage…perhaps a tsunami or a typhoon or some other water-based cataclysm.

Day 4 – Rome/Civitavecchia (2007.05.21)

oops!Day 4 would have started the same as the others, with a breakfast buffet at the hotel, except we had to figure out a way to dry our clothes from the previous night’s laundry festivities (since hanging them out to dry didn’t work). I tried to speed up the drying process using the hair dryer, which turned out to be a not-so-good idea. In addition to melting the hair dryer Read the rest of this entry »
