World War II is now way over a generation ago, and few who cruise may feel they have no immediate family connection to that era. However, there will be a deep connection for all of us to a distant relative lost here. To that end, and because it is so moving, we felt we needed to add the Souda...
Malta is being transformed. Everywhere there seems to be building sites, not least round the town where what looks like a sea level deep moat is being excavated and imagined as a new thoroughfare. Perhaps this will be a new walk in from the port, and there will be a lift up to the town, the Tyrone fountain and...

What lies between the Holy Lands and Rome, answer, Malta. The Knights only had one job, to protect the Catholic religion at any cost. The Normans conquered the island in 1091 and completely re-Christianised them by 1249. The Knights then ruled Malta from 1530. The cost of such wars was always human.

When it has been as hot as it was today, and can be in Malta you can understand the plague or Black Death setting in when the bodies from battle were pilled high and buried in shallow graves. The pilgrimage stopping at Malta saw a fierce battle where over 1,550 Turkish soldiers were slain. The triumphant knights of St...

Crete has a good public bus service. The PORT bus stop is about 50 meters from where you dock, the fare is about 3.40 Euros return and takes ten minutes to Chania. The buses are frequent, and can be one every five minutes. Chania bus service can be researched here but there is no need, it is in the port,...

Most of these ruins and monuments are so huge it is hard to photograph them from close up. We show you a few vantage points to get a good view without going inside as we walk round the city. Carry only what you need and watch for pickpockets. Their version of VAT or sales tax can add 25% to...

Sad we have to remind you, but carry only what you need and watch for pickpockets. The Metro is easy, unlike in Italy where each train is checked, we have never been checked in Athens, but validate Metro tickets BEFORE you get on. Public transport is easy, this was easy.
