River Cruise Journal – Day 6: Passau

Sometime while we were sleeping our ship crossed the Austrian border into Germany. I liked the view that greeted me on our balcony this morning. It was kind of fitting, all that water. Today we were going to visit Passau, Germany. Its nickname is Dreiflüssestadt, City of Three Rivers.

River Cruise Journal – Day 5: Wine and Melk

I wake up far too early every day … and it always starts the same way: with a peek around our blackout drapes to see what’s passing by our window.

Layover in London

Dear Luke and Leia, “London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down…” That was the song … and here we are with a layover in London. We’re sure you remember the song but just so you know, the bridge in London is NOT falling down. Here it is!

Singapore Botanical Gardens in Photos

Dear Luke and Leia, Today we visited the Singapore Botanical Gardens and saw so many colors of flowers that my box of Crayola crayons was jealous.
