We depart tomorrow on our Rhine River Christmas Market Cruise with four other couples. It is my intent to blog daily if time and WIFI permitting.

Well the first leg is done. Now in CLT waiting on flight to Heathrow. Then onto Basel. Yeah, I know that is a lot of connections but for 35000 frequent flyer miles and $26 per ticket roundtrip- I can drink a beer and wait for the next leg.

Pictures tomorrow hopefully

Finding time to do the blog has been hard! Getting ready to head off for a gondola ride over vineyards to a castle. Hope to another update today. Thanks for following

Thanks Carol, I will just keep working through the story as time permits. I definitely need to do a trip report when I get back. Lots of lessons learned. Good ones!

But for now the latest entry is up and we are on the road again....

We have arrived safely back in the US, but due to a snow storm in Europe we got an extra day in Amsterdam that added a few adventures that will be retold in coming updates.
The blog is not real time, but hope you enjoy Monday Dec 4 – singing in the rain...

It wasn't too cold... but the weather was definitely not for a Florida girl

Today's update takes us to Heidelberg and Rüdesheim!
Castles, Wine, Christmas Markets and a dose of reality.

Although the title mentions rain, Bob Dylan fans probably now these lyrics have a much deeper meaning.

Oh yeah - on the lighter side we go swimming!

Enjoy - its a hard rain's a-gonna fall...
