3 days in Venice

Well, those spectacular sunsets seem to be a fairly frequent appearance around here. So because they were so nice, here are two more (from the last two days.
today we arrived in Venice - as I was so exhausted and only finished work at half past midnight this morning I did not get up at 6 am to watch the ship sailing into port but I am told it was fantastic - so next time.....
I am really quite tied down with work so finding time to write all the mails is difficult, but I am getting there one by one. Drop me a line with your address and you may even get a postcard from me. Also if you are trying to contact me by phone (thank you Fi, i am sorry you did not manage would have been fantastic to talk to you) you may find it difficult to get through to me as the calls get to my mobile via a satellite when we are not in port ad the connection in some places is not so good. I also turn my phone of when I am at work but sms should get there or even better a little post on my blog which I am checking relatively frequently (meaning about once a week). So, time for me to go. Love and regards to all of you. Alex

Sunset paradise....

(with enough work to quickly bring you smashing back to reality - but nevertheless absolutely fantastic)

Well, today was strenuous but the finish of the day reminded me why being at sea is so absolutely fantastic. There are so many absolutely fantastic sunsets and tonight we were just south of Bulgaria when the sun set in the most spectacular of ways once again. The pictures only give a little indication of the beauty that we can experience nearly daily.

....... absolutely breathtaking

Concert in Ephesus

Well, yesterday was a special Silversea experience for our guests and I was lucky enough to be allowed to come along as one of the tour escorts. Turkey, Kusadisi and the Ancient monuments of Ephesus were the backdrop for a little classical concert. Here are some memories:
