Have you ever dream of having a grand vacation? I'm pretty sure all of us are always looking forward to having a break from all the hustles and bustles of work, family life and other things that have been eating up most of our time. I know vacations can be really expensive but this is not always the case especially if you plan your trip very well.
Lately, I have been looking at a lot of vacation ideas since I wanted a different one for this year. I chanced upon seeing this Christian Cruise, a Christian centered tour package that focuses on travel and furthering His kingdom. This is a great Christian Family Cruise that gives you the best of traveling by going to the different parts of the country which provides soft adventures and mission services to His people around the globe. They even have Bible Land Christian Cruises that combines life-impacting Biblical sites in Israel, Turkey, Greece and Egypt with the comfort and convenience of a mediterrenean .
If you are interested in these types of vacation tour pacakages, here are a sample of what your itinerary would be for some of the tours lined-up for the coming months:
Arrive Athens, tour Mars Hill and receive a special private teaching then up to the Parthenon and more. Transfer to ship for our welcome celebration as we sail out of the harbor on the most beautiful ship sailing the seas!
Day at sea for fellowship and teachings.
Arrive Dikili with a visit to the ruins of Pergamum. Pergamum is one of the two best preserved church sites. This amazing site overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Not many cruises visit this historic site! This afternoon take a stroll down the beautiful beaches, or you can take in another church site.
Visit Kusadasi beaches with a visit to Ephesus. We will enjoy a teaching in the actual amphitheatre where Paul spoke to the Ephesians. We will see the most fully laid out Roman city that has been excavated. This is believed to be the best kept archeological site in the Mediterranean.
Visit the island of Patmos and John’s cave today. This is a quaint Greek Island where after our teaching at the cave, you can enjoy a stroll around the island, bicycle trip or even a scooter ride!
Full day visit to Santorini. The island widely thought to be the home of the Lost City of Atlantis. This island is also considered the most beautiful island in the world. You can visit the caldera and enjoy the thermal pools, bicycle, visit the Pompeii of the Greek Islands - Akritori. Quaint whitewashed homes, amazing shopping and never ending beaches is what you will encounter today.
Greek island of Sifnos this morning (beaches, BBQ and fun!) We will have an amazing beachfront teaching under shade but with tremendous views. You can take off scootering or bicycling around this quaint island overlooking the beautiful sea. We leave quite late this evening so there is plenty of time to enjoy a day on the Mediterranean Sea plus the island's amazing restaurants, shops, walks and sightseeing. It will be a day of rest for sure.
Arrive back in Athens this morning. This afternoon you will fly home or off to the beautiful island of Malta for our extension with the BASE Institute.
