I am not a natural at being on boats but I learned a lot during the sea chase in the Achilles' Helmet case. Perhaps it was just the thrill of the chase but I didn't feel seasick and quite enjoyed the experience. The dolphins near Skopelos were spectacular and the island of Kythera is somewhere I would like to go back to. We were lucky to be able to save the helmet for the museum. So much is spirited out the country on behalf of unscrupulous collectors.
