Just returned from 6 days in Piraeus. I hired a car so that I could do a bit of touring as well as ship photography.
I chose the hotel (Queens Leriotis) due to location overlooking harbour entrance and anchorage.It was a bit out of town but loads of restaurants locally.
It did not disapoint; the view from my 5th floor balcony was superb with most traffic in photographic range albeit with a 300mm telephoto lens. Luckily both the hotel and car were air conditioned as it was really too hot (what did I expect in July!!) I drove along the coast past Drapetsona, Perama and Elefsina but although there were loads of ships, it was difficult to get decent shots. Eleusis was easier although not many ships. A few tankers at Agio Theodorai but hard to photo. Kalamaki at the S. end of Korinth canal was OK with a bar/restaurant overlooking the "sinking bridge"
Was advised by Petros Psarras (thanks Petros) to take passenger only ferry to Salamina (Paloukia). There is a car ferry from Perama but misses most shipping.
It was hard to find the ferry as the tickets are only sold on board and does not appear to be advertised even on-line.
Go in at Gate E8, turn left and the boats tie up opposite the WC! I could not find a timetable so had to hang around until a boat turned up! Reasonable value underground carpark with clean toilets. Great value boat trip at 3.5 euros (each way)
The one thing about the port is that it seems you can drive onto all the quays without hindrance and one of the best places is at the very entrance on North side (Gate E1) You could sit here all day amoung the container trailers and photo to your heart's content and if it gets too hot, there is always the completely deserted, air conditioned Pericoles Passenger Terminal also with toilets (very important at my age!!)
All in all a great trip but way too hot, maybe April/May would be better

Chinese navy group entering Baltic for excercises with the Russian navy. Includes a new Type 052D destroyer. I think those haven't been to the West yet (but I could be wrong):

The Russians are bringing out the PETR VELIKIY (world's greatest warship IMHO), and others.

Hi MattyBoy  Smiley

As a woman I would say that Captain Ted and several others are right. I have been happily married for 13 years now and we both kept our hobbies. I never asked my husband to make a choice between me and his hobbies just he has never asked me to stop mine or chose between him and them.

ventuari gave some very smart advice too. Everything that you are including your hobbies are the parts of you that make you YOU (if that makes sense). They are what made you attractive to her in the first place. If you eliminate all that then you will be a different person and it won't work out. You can't make a leopard change its spots, you just end up with unhappy people.

Best of luck to you and hope to still see you on here,

Mrs. D
