Who went: Bob Boehler, Marie Bohler, Anthony Boehler, Theresa Boehler and Carolyn Collins.

Occupation: Twin Arbors Athletic Club.

Hometown: Lodi.

Vacation spot: Athens, Greece.

Why did you go? Family vacation — taking our kids on a vacation of a lifetime. We flew to Rome, Italy and stayed three days in an apartment. We took a three-hour train trip to Venice, Italy and stayed four days in an apartment. We started our 12-day cruise to Athens,; Ephesus, Turkey; Istanbul; Mykonos; Naples; Livorno, Italy; Florence; Tonlone-Provenceand and Barcelona.

Our children walked the narrow streets of Venice, Italy and saw the Grand Canal, the Basilica of San Marco in Rome, the Bridge of Sighs in Venice and Michaelangelo’s David in Florence, Italy.

What was the best part of your trip? Sights and eating. Having a cappuccino in Rome. A Greek salad and spinach pie on the island of Mykonos. A never-ending buffet on the cruise, Norweigen Spirit. The chocolate buffet. And eating tapas and paella in Spain.

What was the worst part of your trip?

Having to fly to and from for 15 hours on Lufthansa Airlines. They did feed us on the plane, which was great.

Did anything memorable happen? The whole trip was memorable. The kids got to see sights we only talked about: The Leaning Tower of Piza, the Colosseum, Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvious and  St. Mark’s.

Would you go back? This was our third trip, though first time for our kids.
