Sailing the Dodecanese Islands in Greece

It's wonderful to have friends abroad, especially when those friends invite you to have unique travel experiences with them.  I became email pen-pals with Kristina a year before this trip when she contacted me to ask about website design and cameras.  Kris is from Saint Petersburg, Russia, and a few years ago she became obsessed with sailing, and got her license to sail.  I asked her if I could come on a future sailing trip, and she invited me to join her friends on a Greek voyage around the Dodecanese Islands (the south-eastern most Greek Isles).  My friend Alex and I flew to Rhodes where we met up with Kris, her boyfriend Niko, and a group of their friends from Russia who would all soon be our friends as well.
