EuroCruise: Carpets &The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul

EuroCruise: Carpets &The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul

Gooood Morning Istanbul! After a long day of trekking Istanbul’s delectable sights and spices, I woke up to a breakfast of fresh cherries from Turkey. Super sweet, and readily accessible at our ship’s Buffet line. Day 2 in Istanbul isn’t as long as the entire day… but it did involve a lot of walking… and shopping....

EuroCruise 2010: Food Finding in Istanbul

Back in Istanbul after visiting all the important mosques and palaces in the Old City, which is both an Asian and European city. After all the sight-seeing, everyone was a bit hungry, but didn’t have the luxury of time to sit down for a proper lunch. I was on the hunt for the next best thing that...

EuroCruise 2010: Mad for Mykonos

EuroCruise 2010: Mad for Mykonos

Back to the beautiful Greek Island of Mykonos, home to blue & white homes, hot sunny beaches, and major midnight beach parties. If there’s another thing Mykonos is most remembered for… it’s not wide open spaces like the Chola Town Center. But for the tight and tiny alleys and streetways that zigzag like a labyrinth all around town,...

Next stop on the EuroCruise lineup is the tourist-favorite Greek island of Mykonos, infamous for its bright Mediterranean sun, endless beach parties, and enigmatic blue & white buildings. A tiny 33 square miles, Mykonos is one of the smallest islands in the Cyclades group and is inhabited by only 5000 locals, yet gets flocked by over 900,000 visitors...

EuroCruise 2010: Sweet Sunset in Santorini Part 2

After walking around the towns of Oia and Fira, tasting some sulfur-enriched Santorini wines from Santo Winery, and dining with an awesome view at Sphinx Restaurant, it was time to say goodbye to Arthur, our very animated tourguide who spends half the year in Santorini, and the other half in Australia.  My family loved him so much,...

EuroCruise 2010: Day 2 At Sea, On Board

Sorry. I’ve been pushing down my Summer trip posts in lieu of more local food finds which seem to get readers all riled up. I must continue within the year or else I wouldn’t be giving my Summerstravaganza justice. So anyway, my previous post was about the Celebrity Equinox, the ship which we took to tour the Eastern Mediterranean....

OK, enough of cooking at home, and going out to eat! Must stop noshing even just for a week. Meantime, let me go back to the summer that was and show you the continuation of our EUROTRIP experience on the Celebrity Equinox. Yes! 11 nights on a humongous ship to travel around the Eastern Mediterranean. As usual ToT and her...
The Best of Bohol

The Best of Bohol

Finally after all the craziness that is life these past 2 weeks, I begin my tale that is my Bohol family trip. Bohol, the eponymous island known for the subliminal Chocolate Hills, is like the gift that keeps on giving. Not only are the hundreds of Kisses-like mountains a highlight, there are so many sights...
