I guess this means you’re home safely. I look forward to hearing about it.

Linda and I are doing our best to enjoy the Isle of Wight. It’s a nice, relaxing place to be. We have decided to walk around it — only 113km over five days 🙂

Interesting narration and cool photos and videos. I would love to hear you took any of the London’s haunted tours, I have heard those are one of a kind!

We did not take any of the haunted tours in London, nor in Liverpool which has a “Shiverpool” tour. Edinburgh is also well known for its ghost tours, t seems like many cities have them these days.

Hi Chris
Although I always enjoy your podcasts I especially enjoyed this one since my husband and I will be going to Greece in September. We are also really into history and so we’re pretty excited about seeing all the sites we’ve been reading about. I have been trying to find out if there’s an audio guide to the National Archeology Museum. Did you take a tour or did you just look around for yourself? Thanks again for all the work you put into the podcasts, it’s my favorite.

I don’t know of an audio guide for National Archeology Museum. The signs were in both English and Greek though so I did not feel like I was missing out on anything. The only tours we took on the trip were Knosos on Crete and the Volcano on Santorini. A lot of people do take a tour of the Acropolis and my wife did spent some time standing by some of the tour guides. We might have learned more but I already knew a lot about the history of the Acropolis.
