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

Lavrione (Lavrio) Greece - WTRD 25, Saturday, September 3

Relaxing in the Charter Boat City of Lavrio, Greece

It is the first time in three weeks that we have been able to sleep in and have nothing on our agenda.  

It's a breezy day in Lavrio, the jump off port for the Cyclades, (pronounced Kiklades) Islands. Sailing charter boats from crewed to bareboat, line the docks. Our itinerary will take us from Lavrio to Santorini via Kithnos, Siros, (northern Cyclades), Paros and Naxos, Delos, Mikanos  (middle Cyclades), Ios and Thira -Santorini (southern Cyclades).

We walked around the town, looked at all the charter boats in the Marina, trying to find ours, but didn't see it.   

Maybe, it will come in tomorrow.? I'm stressing about our luggage fitting on these boats. With our gear for Iceland to Morocco, we think we have more than our stateroom will accommodate.  I fear we may be sleeping on top of the bags. 

We found a geocache near the marina (309 world wide), had great pastries for breakfast, moussaka and Greek salad for dinner.

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