December 27th we visited Olympia, Greece. Olympia is where the first Olympics were held and where they were held for thousands of years. It was neat to see current excavation sites. After we walked through the ruins and excavation sites we went into town to do a little shopping. Instead of shopping hubby and I found a little restaurant and had some gyros that we had been craving!
December 28th we were supposed to go to Malta but once we got close to port it was determined that it was too dangerous to enter the port because of the winds that were up to 50 knots. This made for some very rough seas and the ship was "rocking" enough that I spent a lot of time in bed with a queasy stomach!
Here are some photos from Olympia:
