2014 in images

Continuing to catch-up the missing years in review, here are photographs taken in 2014.

Trips this year included Spain, Japan and Greece including a final sailing, from Piraeus to Milos, on the Agios Georgios (ex-Hengist) which later sank in Piraeus harbour and was scrapped. It was also a year which saw last trips on the HSS Stena Explorer and the Sherbatskiy (ex-Pride of Free Enterprise).
