Pompeii & an overnight cruise to Greece


You can follow my AESU Tour to Europe from the start here.

The city of Pompeii faced destruction when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD and covered it in 13 to 20 feet of ash. Pompeii was rediscovered in 1599 and after many excavations visitors can see many of the objects that remain after this disaster. The city was well preserved because of the lack of moisture and air. When I think of Pompeii I immediately recall a statue I saw visiting the town; it was someone praying before they met their death.

I can’t even begin to imagine what chaos and fear ran through this town as it was covered from the eruption in ash.

Overnight Cruise Ending

Our overnight cruise to Greece left from Brindisi and was not your glamorous Mexican Riveria experience with Carnival Cruise Lines. It was a great experience though and I was along for the party!
