European River Cruise Trip, Oct. 14 through Nov. 1, 2014


Good day!  Goede middag!  Guten Tag!  & Jó napot!

Bill and I were invited to take an Avalon Waterways “Magnificent Europe – Eastbound” river cruise this fall.  We joined fifteen other relatives & friends for a wonderful journey through Europe, cruising from Amsterdam in The Netherlands all the way to Budapest, Hungary.  We began on the Rhine River, switched to the Main after Rüdesheim, Germany, then took the Danube Canal through Bamberg and Nuremberg, and finally connected with the Danube around Regensburg.  We saw five European countries (The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, & Hungary) on this trip!

To say that we had a great time would be the understatement of the year!  It was easily one of the best trips, if not the best trip, I have ever taken.  I recommend it to everyone!

I’ll post the best of the couple thousand photos that Bill and I took along the way.  Today’s photos include our Amsterdam photos taken Oct. 15-16, 2014 (and one taken on the 14th while flying all day).
