Athens, Greece

I am CREW… Follow me to my ship and the port of
Piraeus, Greece

New Post on my YouTube Channel “Travel Guide and Photography”

I am now home in northeast Thailand in the small farming community of Nawa and once again able to post every week. In the coming weeks I will post videos of Greece featuring Rhodes which is one of my favorite ports, Olympia where the Olympic games began and the Akrotiri Archaeological Site on Santorini. I will also post videos of the Knossos Archaeological Site on the island of Crete, Ephesus in Turkey which is amazing, cruising through the Suez Canal and another check on my bucket list… a visit to Petra, Jordan.

This video is the final leg of my journey from my home in Nawa to the port of Piraeus, Greece which many ships are using to access Athens. If you are looking for a place to stay that is close to the ship, less then 5 minutes, if you are embarking in Piraeus this video was made with you in mind. Even if you are joining your ship in Athens I recommend staying in Piraeus as it is a short 30-minute drive and away from the tourist zone and high prices.

I will show you a great place to stay, the Luxurious Seaview Apartments literally across the street from the ocean with a deck and a great view for under $100 US. I take you on a walking tour of the area showing you several restaurants, the marina and even a public beach.

I started my career in photography as a professional photojournalist in 1979 at the time working with several newspapers and magazines in Southern California. What I loved most about photojournalism was its diversity and over my career I covered professional sports, concerts and travel. As life would have it mine took yet another turn and in 1988 I developed an interest in holistic medicine. I became a professional massage therapist specializing in sports medicine. In 1991 I decided to go to medical school and obtained a medical degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and stared my career as a licensed acupuncture physician. After medical school I moved my practice to northern Idaho for a year before settling in the resort area of Sun Valley, Idaho. I’ve always been an outdoor person and hiking and backpacking the Rockies and fishing the pristine river waters and high altitude lakes offered me a wonderful photographic opportunity. In 2010 I left Sun Valley and I once again found myself on a cruise ship, this time working as an “Acupuncturist at Sea”. For the past seven years I have traveled to 85 countries, which has allowed me to photograph much of the world.
