- September 10, 2013Remembering TurkeyToday, I leave Turkey, one of my favorite countries in the world. I love this country because of the friendliness of its people, its rich cultural heritage, its gorgeous (and healthy food), and because it is the land where so much of Paul and of John’s ministry took place.
- September 10, 2013Sabbath Just Outside of EphesusThe Sabbath hours began with a gorgeous sunset over the bay of Kusadasi, where we stay in a hotel overlooking the harbor. Truly, this is to be a special Sabbath to cap an extraordinary week of discoveries in the sun and the surf, following the footsteps of the apostles.
- September 09, 2013Back on Terra Firma (dry land), and on to EphesusWe spent the night in a secluded cove, between the Greek island of Samos and mainland Turkey. The channel at this spot is only about one mile wide.
- September 06, 2013Miletus and PrieneThe sun is setting over the Aegean Sea, bringing another wonderful day to a close, a day rich in discoveries.
- September 06, 2013DidymaFive hours of sailing including a break in a secluded bay for breakfast bring us back to the Turkish mainland for a visit to the ancient city of Didyma.
- September 05, 2013PatmosThe name of this insignificant Greek island may be short. But is also memorable, and for good reason.
- September 04, 2013Adventists are a Hardy BunchTwenty three of the 34 participants are over 65! Considering that this cruise is an adventure by sea and land, by ship and by bike, I can’t but admire the courage and stamina of our participants, especially our older ones.
- September 03, 2013Kos IslandOff to sea we go! We cross from Bodrum in Turkey to the first Greek Island, Kos.
- September 02, 2013Sabbath by the SeaThirty four participants from the United States, Canada and Zimbabwe converged on Bodrum, on the shore of the Aegean Sea near Izmir, ancient Smyrna, to begin the Adventist Review Revelation Cruise 2013.
