We are sailing towards Amsterdam where our first official cruise will start going to Budapest (15 days) and I am so excited. I will get to explore the city for a few days and get acquainted so that will be helpful so I don't seem too green when guests ask me questions.
Here are some pictures I took along the Rhine River and also Cologne where we stopped for the day (3/18) and I got to explore that city for a few hours.I just love all the castles along the Rhine--they are always up really high overlooking everything else. I can't imagine the trials people faced taking all the materials up those mountainsides while building them so many years ago. There is just so much history here. The vineyards are all along the sides of the mountains as well--I guess that makes the grapes taste better when they have to work harder to grow!!
This one was my favorite--I loved the light and just how mysterious it looks. I'm still trying to find out which one it's called.
