Hats

DH has started to research hats for both of us for this trip. He generally wears a baseball cap as do I on occasion. Anyway especially in Turkey/Greece there is a strong recommendation for hats so we are beginning to look at uv protection hats. Any suggestions? Sue

DVC should make UV-protection hats for members! DH usually wears a DVC cap - they gave out white ones for a while which he found to be cooler than the red or black ones they'd had before. But I'm glad you mentioned it because I may look for some UV shirts, too.

I'm starting to think about the things I need to stock up on and take care of before we leave. Things like making sure to take enough medicine - one of the boys is prone to headaches so I need to pack enough headache remedy to last for while we're gone. And I need to figure out when I need to get bills scheduled to be auto-paid for while we're gone - guess I'll be working with the calendar this weekend - i don't want to leave it too late to at least have planned out so I don't forget something at the last minute.

Try Travelsmith, they have fold up sun hats (and lots of other good things for travel).

YIKES!!!!

Suicide blast hits US Embassy in Turkey; 3 feared dead

http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2...ared-dead?lite

Quote:

In an emergency message for U.S. Citizens, the State Department said Americans were “advised to not visit the Consulates in Istanbul, Adana or the Embassy in Ankara until further notice.”

“The Department of State advises U.S. citizens traveling or residing in Turkey to be alert to the potential for violence, to avoid those areas where disturbances have occurred, and to avoid demonstrations and large gatherings,” the message said.
I'm worried now about our safety in Turkey . . .

I'm worried now about our safety in Turkey . . .
They will change our itinerary if they feel it is not safe for us to be there. We have friends who are cruising later this month that included a stop in Egypt - their itinerary was altered to exclude Egypt because of safety concerns.

This is really why we are sticking with DCL for Ephesus and for Athens (and on our own walk-about in Mykonos) so we aren't obligated to a private tour provider and then have a problem if we miss the port.

Santorini would be nice.

Hopefully we don't get to "Tunis level".
In 2011, about this time of year Tunisia exploded
