Katakolon/Olympia, Greece - Cruise Port Info

The sanctuary of Olympia is the big deal attraction. The 40-minute drive from Katakolon takes you through some of the most fertile areas of Greece, where most of the country's fruit and vegetables are grown. Once in Olympia, the tour buses pull up to the archeological site at the foot of Kronos hill. The Olympic Games originated here in 776 B.C., although the Sanctuary of Olympia dates to the 10th and 9th century B.C. This is also where the Olympic flame of the modern games is lit (using sunlight and a lens).

Airplane and Helicopter Hotels Take Tourists to New Heights

by Fluxcapacitor39 on Storify

Themed hotels have really taken off in recent years and aviation-themed hotels are no exception. The question remains, however, can you still join the "mile high club" if you're only 30-feet off the ground?

Jumbo Hostel, Arlanda Airport, Stockholm, Sweden

Jumbo Hotel

Jumbo Hotel

The Jumbo Hostel is located in an up-cycled Boeing 747 at the Arlanda International Airport near Stockholm, Sweden. Built in 1976, the Jumbo Hostel has 27 rooms and a total of 76 beds. The majority of the rooms are dorm-style, with shared showers and bathrooms. For an additional 200 dollars, however, guests can spend the night in the plane's cockpit, which has been converted into a luxury suite with a private bathroom and a panoramic view of the airport's runway. Dorm beds average between 50 and 60 dollars per night.

Though the inside of the plane has been fully refurbished to include private bedrooms, showers and a cafe restaurant, some of the original parts of the plane remain, including the lounge bar, oxygen masks and the original seats from first class. (more…)

The Worst Thing We've Forgotten to Pack

Independent Traveler

As frequent travelers, we at IndependentTraveler.com like to think of ourselves as expert packers … but even experts make mistakes. As our special Packing Week continues, we’re taking a look at all those important little things that somehow didn’t make it into our bags.

My own personal bugaboo is sleepwear. I’ve accidentally left my pajama pants at home on a couple of trips, and discovered that sleeping in jeans is just not fun. But I’ve learned my lesson; these days, pajamas are the first thing I check off on my packing list.

Of course, I’m not alone in my forgetfulness. Below are stories from six other IndependentTraveler.com staffers who left home without some vital item — or, in one case, whose luggage left without her! Read, laugh and share your own packing story in the comments. (more…)

Santorini, Greece - Cruise Port Info

Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece

Spectacular Santorini -- scene of one of the world's most violent volcanic eruptions around 1450 B.C. -- is inarguably the most scenically dramatic of all the Greek Islands. Officially the island is Thira, yet the Latin name of Santorini persists. With its pitch-black beaches, rugged landscape and stunning caldera (volcanic crater), it's more akin to one of the Canary Islands than the Cyclades, though its whitewashed buildings and clifftop houses score highly in the charm stakes.

This is the island for lovers of natural beauty. Best views are from the cliffs bordering the caldera, which was formed when the center of the island basically collapsed into itself. Geologists marvel at the cliffs' multi-hued strata of rock, lava and pumice, so take your camera and be prepared to feel the earth move (perhaps even literally -- Santorini's most recent major earthquake was in 1956, although there was one nearby as recently as June 26, 2009).

If you're happy to enjoy a browse around the shops and a lazy lunch with a view, Fira will fit the bill perfectly -- and it even has some 9th-century clifftop ruins to explore. But to see the best of Santorini, you should take a shore excursion, via bus or taxi, further afield.
