The jet lag is over and it is now time to start posting. So here’s a preview of the photos and stories I will be posting over the next several weeks.
We flew from San Francisco to Frankfurt and then to Zurich to begin our four-day pre-cruise stay in Switzerland.
Rhine River Cruise
We lived aboard this ship for a week as we cruised down the Rhine River from Basel to Amsterdam.
After our cruise we stayed in Amsterdam for another three days. Our cousins Henry and Geraldine from Ireland flew over and stayed at the same hotel. It was a nice reunion — we hadn’t seen each other in three years.
From Amsterdam we traveled by train to Osnabrueck, Germany where we visited some of the places where our Theler ancestors lived before migrating to the US in the mid-1800s.
We visited two high school classmates and their wives during our stay in Belgium. Dan and Kate live in Verviers in southeast Belgium and George and Jacqueline live in Nivelles about a half-hour south of Brussels. We also stayed in Brussels for a couple of days.
So that’s a preview of the photos and stories I will be posting over the next few months. For the next week or so I will be writing about our walk around Zurich and our bus trip to Lucerne.
