Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning luxury charter cruising in Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the blue links immediately above. Thank You. Should you not be searching for Samuel Richardson's Clarissa Harlowe, you might be searching for a luxury yacht charter cruising Greece. Or for a luxury yacht charter cruising the coast of Turkey. You may be dreaming of a holiday on an elegant yacht. Or even of cruising Cleopatra's honeymoon route, a honeymoon on which she was accompanied by four treasure barges. Perhaps you are thinking of doing this on your own honeymoon or anniversary. If so, you might wish to charter a Danish-flag sailing yacht on which to cruise in similar comfort, perhaps hoping to come across those barges while cruising the crossroads of history. Cruising the crossroads of history as did the first of the Russian navies nine hundred years after Cleopatra. And as did Bjorn Ironside at about the same time. Bjorn Ironside was a Viking king born in Denmark who in AD 859 sailed with his hoard of fair-haired blue-eyed giants into the Mediterranean aboard ocean-going longships bulwarked by round shields. There he pillaged Muslim Spain and north Africa, subsequently striking the Balearic Islands and then the coasts of France and Italy. Along the way he ravaged Nimes and Valence 100 miles inland on the Rhone River, and sacked Pisa and La Spezia on the west coast of Italy. He then proceeded all the way to Constantinople where in AD 860 he is said to have struck a commercial accord with Byzantine Emperor Michael III. In the same year Russian navies comprised of Viking Danes and Frisians who had settled in Kiev began coming down the Volga, the Dnieper, and the Don in their longships. Upon making rendezvous with Bjorn Ironside, Viking Danes had effectively sliced the Byzantine Empire into Asian and European halves. Would you like to holiday aboard a Danish-flag longship? Would you like to have a holiday like that of Olga, Danish Princess of Kiev? In the autumn of AD 945. Of course not. A Danish luxury yacht can be a lot more comfortable than a Danish longship. So charter a Danish-flag luxury yacht to cruise the Aegean from Bodrum. Or from Gocek. Discuss with her crew how a Danish princess came to rule Russia for twenty-four years from AD 945, how she was christened by the Orthodox patriarch in Constantinople in AD 957, and for what reasons she became Saint Olga. Samuel Richardson's 1747 novel Clarissa, available at your favorite book store, or the History of a Young Lady, is in seven volumes the longest novel in the English language. And its protagonist Clarissa Harlowe may be as fascinating as one of this luxury yacht's cruises through history. So charter the yacht Clarissa to cruise the coast of Turkey and the Aegean islands of Greece. And bring your copy of Clarissa with you. Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? For Bodrum in Turkey? For Tilos or Lesbos in Greece? Well, come aboard Clarissa, a charter sailing yacht offering a holiday encompassing all of these places. Come aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you the Dodecanese islands of Greece, or Cleopatra's route up the Turkish coast to Samos, or Bjorn Ironside's route across the Aegean to Lesbos, or Olga's tracks near and through the Bosphorus. Clarissa, a proper sailing yacht available for luxury charter in Greece and Turkey. Contact Blue Cruise Yacht Charters today at firstname.lastname@example.org
