Aqaba, Jordan to Ponta Delgada, Azores

The fourth leg of this journey takes us from the Middle East through the Mediterranean Sea and into the Atlantic Ocean. Our first stop was Aqaba in Jordan and then we traveled through Suez Canal into the Mediterranean Sea where we landed in Israel to visit the ports of Ashdod (Jaffa) and Haifa (Caesarea). From there we went to Kusadasi in Turkey. Next we sailed to Piraeus in Greece where we took an overland trip that included Meteora  and  Delphi on Greek Orthodox Easter weekend. Leaving Greece we went to Messina and Naples in Italy. In Spain we visited ElcheMijas and Cadiz. We ended our voyage with an overnight stay in  Ponta Delgada in the Azores before sailing back to Ft. Lauderdale.
