With St. Paul in Athens

by Steve Ray on November 12, 2010

Today we disembarked from the Orient Queen and drove into Athens. It’s always hard to pack and leave your cabin but we must move on.

We arrived at the famous Acropolis upon which still stands the Parthenon. We started first with Mass on top of the rocky hilltop called Mars Hill or the Areopagus where St. Paul some to the judges of the Areopagites.

We then scrambled up the Acropolis in the rain. After that the group split into two groups: 30 going home and 40 going on to Rome.

We took the bus to Patras where we boarded the Ionian Queen, an over night ferry to Pompeii. Stay tuned!

I took this similar trip (via cruise and buses) in 2007 and I enjoyed viewing these memorable biblical and historical scenes on your video again.

I, too, like Regina took this pilgrimage in 2007. Seeing the pictures make it seems like yesterday.

Hello to everybody and a person, who posted the video! I found it by chance while looking for the itinerary you made on Orient Queen. I was a hostess there, I am sure if I see your photo posted here I will definitely recognize you! )))) Maybe you also remember me, who knows ))) I recognized all people from the video )))
I am happy your trip back home was safe, and as I saw from video the continuation after the disembarkation was also not bad ))))).
Merry Christmas, enjoy the New Year ))))).
Irena
