Worrall Travel R's - Kicking the Bucket List

My photo

We are the Worrall Travel R's Roz and Russ Worrall. Our goal before we "kick the bucket" is to see as much of the world as we are able, learn about world cultures, experience making friends around the world, and share goodwill and what we learn with others. WE HOPE YOU JOIN US VIA THE BLOG ON OUR TRAVELS.

We started our world travels in 1969 in VW camper van in the USA, Canada, and Europe, but didn't actively blog about our travels until 2009 aboard our sailing vessel SV Worrall Wind, a 44 ft Nauticat Ketch.  On September 5, 2009 we left San Francisco and took a left at the Golden Gate to Explore the World.

From to Sea to Land
After almost 4 years of cruising Mexico and the South Pacific, we sold our beloved boat in Australia, 2013. The Worrall Travel R's are continuing our travels around by many other means of conveyance -boats,trains, planes, sometimes camels, elephants, rickshaws, and hot air balloons.. 

Russ is a retired engineer, optometrist, professor from U.C. Berkeley. Roz is a retired computer programmer/analyst, educator, (teacher, administrator, professional developer). 

Our Mantra:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain

Goodbye Moldova, Hello Greece, WTRD 24, Friday, September 2, 2016

The Power of Friendship - Thank you Friendship Force

We bid our Moldovan Host and Host Country of Moldova a fond farewell.  Mariana and Catalina left for work and school at 7:30 am.  Mariana's mom came over just before 11:00 with beautiful vegetables from her garden and prepared us a healthy lunch of tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese, meats and fruits before the taxi picked us up just before noon.  Our exchange coordinators met us at the airport, helped us check in, and we gave each other tearful hugs as we departed.  Farewell Moldova. We hope to reciprocate your hospitality in California.   The power of friendship is awesome!

After a transfer in Bucharest, Russ and I arrived in Athens, took a taxi to Lavrio (about 70 kilometers west of Athens on the coast), and checked into our Airbnb by 10:30 pm). Our host Sophia was waiting for us and showed us our rooms.  This is a small apartment/hotel, recently remodeled.  We are close to the marina and have a small studio.  Very Nice.

All is Well with the Worrall Travel R's in Lavrio, Greece.
