  1. You "stole" my stamp for this theme. I will have to find another one. :)))

    Oh, so sorry, Dan! hahaha.
    What can I say - great minds think alike!

    Interestingly, of the set, I like this one the best.
    Though, I will admit that kayaking and Greece would not have been a combination I would have thought of for touring!

  4. What a good stamp. And thank you for the mythology lesson - very interesting.

  5. Marcie says:

    I have posted the same stamp :)

  6. so interesting story behind the stamp! :). Glad to read it :)

    I have boated along the Acheron twice but the first time was the most magical because tourism had yet to happen (back in the 70s) and there were lots of swooping dragon flies and sea swallows. I would still recommend the trip and would imagine it would be a nice river to canoe along, great stamp design.

    @Marcie: That makes the three of us, almost. Dan had the same stamp planned for posting but didn't when he saw mine already up :D

    @Bob and @coverpostcardsworldwide: I love digging stories about the stamps I receive. They churn up really interesting stories.

    @Joy: Wow, I so envy you! I would probably be enthralled the first time knowing about its significance in Greek mythology.

    Thank you for the mythology lesson, and thank you for participating!

  10. It's a lovely stamp so I'm not surprised the others chose it too. :) I had no idea there were other rivers separating the underworld - I've only ever heard of the Styx before now.
