Geography Lessons

After leaving Rhodes, we made our way north through the Aegean Sea into the Dardanelles to the Sea of Marma to the Bosphorus Strait to the Black Sea. Istanbul (which was Constantinople), has the Bosporus running through it and is very scenic from the Strait. As with everything else, I'll eventually have pictures available...but in the meanwhile, here is a map showing our route.

Our goal was the coast of Romania for an exercise called Summer Storm 11. The ship conducted several amphibious offloads, helicopter landings, and other exercises with the Romanian Navy.
