We arrived in Trieste on October 2nd and were warmly welcomed by Chris’ sister Cinzia. We spent three wonderful days with her and her family before taking the train to Venice to board the ship for our 10 day Adriatic Cruise on Seabourn. Our stops included Corfu, Katakolon, & Igoumenitsa, Greece – Brindisi, Italy – Kotor, Montenegro – Split & Ravinj, Croatia. The pictures are from the places we really enjoyed – Trieste, Venice, Kotor, Split & Ravinj

If you click on the first picture it will allow you to create a slide show. And it turns out they are in ascending order (in other words, the first is actually the last) So if you click the back arrow you will see them in order. Enjoy!

Old & New Fortress

FUN-fact – Corfu is an island in the Ionian Sea and was considered the entryway to Venice because of its location. It was controlled by Venice from 1402 before a bunch of countries went back and forth for control over a 500 year period.
More FF – The old city became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2007.

More FF – Oktoberfest in Munich came to an end last night with 6.4 million people drinking 6.7 liter-sized steins of beer – more than twice the volume of an Olympic swimming pool.
