    Fascinating! Great pictures. I presume they have restored those buildings quite a lot, they rellay don’t look as old as they must be.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. Yes, they really have. And it’s very well visited with a lot of guides.

    What a lovely photo and also them at Flickr and yes, you look satisfied in all meaning of the words. No wonder as I red your story from Knossos. I didn’t know you was afraid of heights though:-)
    As an A-Team Cruiser, you know I am so much looking forward to welcome you to Oslo!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Renny :-) I’m soo looking forward to Oslo, since the last time I’ve been there it was very cold and grey weather, making it a bit difficult to really see anything and it’s difficult to cover all Oslo on just a couple of hours…. *s*

    Such a wonderful honeymoon. We did not get to take one and plan to on our 10th anniversary, God willing and the bank account stable!

    You had a wonderful trip and it is one of the places I have always wanted to visit for the views and architecture! Just stunning!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. I really hope that you get to go some where magical on your 10th!!!

    Debbie said:

    By the by what do I have to do to get a little flag by my name?

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I know Debbie – I don’t really know why your’s is such a secret! It says: Unknown city on yours so that’s why it can’t decide which country you’re from – I guess it’s either your browser or your ISP that’s keeping that secret for us.

    Melli said:

    Ahhhhh! Beautiful you! Nice building too — makes ya wonder how grand it was when it was a whole building!

    Yes, imagine the LIFE around there at that time! *whistles*

    Maribeth said:

    Why, Mrs LC. Aren’t you a real cute girl! I love the Architecture too, but the picture would have been just a bunch of stones without you in it!

    Lifecruiuser: Oh, don’t make me soooo embarrassed Maribeth! That’s because you’re looking at me at such a great distance, if you’d come close you’d run away in the other direction….. *lol*

    ribbiticus said:

    greece would have some of the most amazing structures and such great history too! i am so envious! have fun on your honeymoon! mine’s up, too! ;)

    Lifecruiser: We had fun back then and by the time we got on another one we’ll have fun too, as we always have on our trips – even the ones when I’ve been ill….

    Linda said:

    Greek architecture is so fascinating – even when it’s falling down! Very nice pictures and you look radiant!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Linda. It really is a stunning place worth to see several times!!!!

    michelle said:

    What an amazing place to spend your honeymoon! (And kudos to you for leaving the hotel to explore! ;) My photo is up!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it truly was. Very special, even more special than we thought when we booked it!!!

    eija said:

    Yeah… Greek architecture is beyond comparison. You know I was there once, too. I think it was around 1984… Ouch. Makes me feel ancient!

    Lifecruiser: Ancient is extra beautiful, remember that :-)

    LibertyBelle said:

    Congratulations!!!! Tillykke!!!
    Great photo of you and the architecture!
    Greece is a wonderful place. I’ve only been to Samos
    but it is truly beautiful!
    Great photo!!!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks, but Oh, I hope you didn’t thought that the honeymoon was right now? That was back in 2004 :-) Just to clearify it. I think all the greek islands are magnificent, all in their own way.

    meeyauw said:

    Lucky you! What a gorgeous honeymoon! Those are memories forever. And you were able to view so much beauty there.

    Lifecruiser: Yes. I can only dream about it right now…. *delightful sigh*

    Great picture of you in fine Greek form!

    I’ve never been to Greece but would love to go one day. A Mediterranean cruise would be lovely actually!

    BTW – speaking of cruises, you mentioned on my blog something about an email regarding a cyber cruise. I haven’t received anything via email. Let me know.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks ICL. I’ve sent you an email about the cyber cruise – and I agree to that – a mediterranean real cruise had been very very niiiiice :-)

    claudie said:

    Ahhh! Mrs Lifecruiser! What a beautiful life! You are on the paradise! Love! Travel! Two adventurers and lovers! All pics are beautiful and the description of your events so interesting! I’m permanently fan of your blog!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Claudie! Ah, yes, so beautiful and we love to travel with each other :-) )) Though it has been too little this last year because of other obstacles!!!! But we will start the travel again as soon as we can!

    I’d love to go to Greece sometime.

    Mine’s up :)

    Lifecruiser: You should, it’s gorgeous!!!

    srp said:

    I think what amazes me most about these is that while they are “ruins”, there is still so much vibrant color. I don’t usually see that color in ancient ruins. Have they been repainted or partially restored? Lovely.

    Lifecruiser: Yes. I don’t know much about it though.

    PowersTwinB said:

    How lovely you are in front of that very old wall! it looked like it was happy honeymooning and forever in photo memories!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, it sure is :-D

    Gattina said:

    If I were sitting at your place, Mr. Gattino would say a ruin in front of a ruin, lol ! He did it already. I have a friend who goes to Kreta since 1973 with her husband and they do “wild” camping since then ! Now they are both in their 70 and still do it ! Can you imagine one month in an igloo tent without running water and toilet ? I have to say they are very well organized but still. A goat climbing on the tent in the middle of the night and landing on husbands chest is just one of their little adventures !

    Lifecruiser: Ha ha ha! I love your humor – both of yours I mean :-) ))) Wow, that friends of yours are truly admirable! I wouldn’t do that even now…. Applause to them! Camping, gosh! There we can really say:still going strong huh? Impressive!

    TorAa said:

    It’s excellent architecture around here. One is more beautiful than the others;)

    btw. Back prbp’s. My fysioterapeut, told me, while blushing, the best traing you can have for your (mine) back is “missionærstilling” – heheheh

    Lifecruiser: Oh, THAT old ruin ;-) Ha ha… Yes, making love is very good exercise…. Ho ho… Mr Lifecruiser, where are you…??? *LMAO*

    Amy said:

    What a great place to visit!

    Lifecruiser: Yes – gorgeous and well worth it!!!

    Pastormac's Ann said:

    Wow that must have an amazing place to see. Great photo for The Hunt.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, about amazing x 100 :-)

    maiylah said:

    beautiful choice!!!
    both the architectural design and you! :-)
    would love to visit the place someday …
    many thanks for the visit! :grin:

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Maiylah. I do hope that you get the chance since it’s soooo worth it :-)

    What an interesting greek architecture ruin, i always wanted to go there. The advance Greek architecture is always amaze me. Talking about traditional architecture, here we in bali we got some architecture which is made from long time a ga, and some are rebuild by some balinese architect. That i recommend you to see, which are among the best indonesian architecture.
