Oceania Nautica Part 4

Crossing the Equator: Sometime last night we crossed the Equator.  From the beginning of time seafarers have partaken in ancient ceremonial initiations for crossing specific navigational parallel's on the globe.  Such practices are so vintage in origin that their derivation has been lost, but it is believed that invitations in such secret societies began in the Middle Ages, and it is possible that it began with the Vikings.

Oceania Riviera -Antalya

Sailing into Antalya was very pretty.  A long narrow strip of Beach with very high mountains in background made it feel like sailing into a half circle.  At certain times of the years once can travel 45 minutes into the mountains and snow ski and then come back to the beach and swim.

According to tradition in the second century BC King Attalos II ordered his men to find "heaven on earth".  After an extensive search, they discovered the region of Antalya and the King agreed that heaven on earth had been found.

Oceania Nautica- Part 2

Today we are in Richard's Bay, still South Africa.   Richards Bay is home to a vast population of aquatic birds and is where hunter  John Dunn shot the longest crocodile ever recorded in South Africa, a whopping 22 feet. We were on a waiting list for another game drive, in Hluhwwe, pronounced Shoo shoo we.  We did get on so we chose to go to St. Lucia Wetland Nature Reserve and we were happy that we did as we finished our big Five sighting when we we saw a buffalo standing on the edge of the water.

Tulip Time Cruise

April 2014-Ama Prima

We recently traveled with AMA Waterways through the Netherlands and Belgium.  The ship was new and the furnishings were lovely.  It was our first river cruise and most certainly, not our last.  The crew of the ship were helpful, dedicated to passengers' needs and friendly.  Each day the menu presented many choices and excellent tasty food.
