Traveling with Merrillee

This is Merrillee, sharing some interesting photos from a recent trip my husband and I took to the eastern Mediterranean. Here is one of my favorites. Notice the sign behind my husband.

"Genuine Fake Watches"


I didn't buy one, but I wonder how many people did.


The picture below is a photo of a wall covered in papers of all difference sizes. People write their prayers on the papers and stuff them into the wall kind of like the wailing wall in Jerusalem. This is near the ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus in Turkey.


This photo shows a woman gathering the silk threads from the cocoon of the silk worms in the barrel in front of her. The silk is used to make very expensive hand-woven Turkish rugs.


This is a photo of my husband and I in front of the Parthenon in Athens.



This is a photo taken in the town of Oia on Santorini, one of the Greek islands. Do I need to say more?


I took this photo as our ship sailed into the harbor at Istanbul, Turkey, a city of around 12 million people that straddles two continents, Europe and Asia.


These are only a few of the pictures I took on our trip. Do you like to travel? Tell us about one of your favorite trips.

  2. Pamela,
    Traveling is nice, but it's always good to come back home.
