Congrats on finaly getting there, love that 1st pic, what a great sky!

As for moving her back home, the recent European winter weather won't be with us for long, i'm sure future trips will be less eventfull and you'll have many more warm sailing days there than you would at home.

Wow, it is already over. It feels like the stay was less than the journey

One flight down, two more to go.

I managed to do a few things I had planned to do, check or measure, but plenty of things were forgotten or time simply ran out.

I was just a little nervous going down there which was worsened by the flight chaos. A while back I had a thread where I posted concerns about the sellers name being the same as the alias used by a British conman. I nearly pulled out of the negotiation because of this. In the end it encouraged me to arrange a broker which helped me sleep at night

Now I need to create a "to bring" list for the next visit, perhaps I a month

Hey Hoppy
Thanks for the great story and photos. I was just thinking you could sail it down to Brisbane Australia and I look after it for you. Nice and warm down here and beautiful Islands to visit. The way you fly Brisbane would be much quicker :-)
Enjoy your new love and more luck next time.
Keep us informed
cheers
Reiner

I have been looking for flights back down to Greece for the first weekend after NYE. There is so much snow in Stockholm right now and there is flight chaos in Frankfurt again. With the way this winter is going, I'm really wondering if it will be a good idea unless I can find flights via airports that can handle a bit of snow.
