    Having been to greece so many time id have to say my favorite times have been there from laying on the ferry going to the island im from with the Mediterranean only lit by the moon seeing only silhouettes of islands with lights all along the mountain ridges, the boats are old but do the job get people from point A to point B. So last year when the winter came around and i took royal caribbean it was almost like culture shock that boats can be that nice. The funny thing is however many people were on that cruise to the bahamas is as many as they tried to fit on the ferry in greece. Other times i've spent my 11 hour trip on the stair leading to the car deck playing backgammon with my cousin we weren't the only ones a few steps up were more people crammed in like sardines. My suggestion to anyone traveling in greece is get to the ferry early very early and lay out your sleeping bag on a bench and claim your territory.

    The constest sounds interesting, I would like to participate. On my
    summer vacation I have plans to visit the Carribean for an adult
    vacation for two weeks at charlisangels, an affordable exotic resort
    that haappens to be on a great location for pictures. I would try to
    remember to take many pictures of my trip for having a good
    participacion while I am also taking my time to relax.

    I would love to participate, but what about those of us that are teaching (and therefore, living) abroad? Can the magazines not be mailed to anywhere other than the US?
