July has been great so far out here in the Mediterranean!
We celebrated the 4th of July onboard the ms Noordam with a new Marines stationed in Athens, Greece (birthplace of Democracy!) After they helped us out with a great flag raising ceremony we had chili dogs, s’mores, and beer (of course… Independence Day the American Way!)
A few days after that I visited the Vatican in Rome for the first time bringing my country count up to 23 (I’ve been to more countries than US States!) It was hot like Texas, but a lovely day seeing the Sistine Chapel (an illegal Sistine Chapel photo coming soon!)
