Extremely Turbulent Ferry Ride

Aloha Everyone,

J.J. and I endured a memorable ferry crossing from Syros to Naxos today. Since the time our tickets were issued, there was a change of departure hour. Bad weather, choppy sea combined with physical fatigue plus a smaller older vessel caused me to suffer violent seasickness. J.J. arranged for one of the crews to give us assistance to disembark.

All I remember was a very large man came over and said, “I help.” I was very grateful they had a wheelchair lift. I sat on a plastic chair as we slowly descended two decks. It was a relief when my feet touched the solid ground.

The two of us are safely back in Naxos for a week.

Aloha -- Cathi
