While more civilized than wild, these are still journeys of exploration & understanding. Some flowers too!
July 13-29, 2012. Civilized Places and Events. Karen and I took a long Viking River Cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest. After a few days in a hotel to get oriented in Amsterdam, we were on what was essentially a floating hotel a little under 200. Our route took us up the Rhine, up the Main, over on the Main-Danube Canal, and down the Danube. We ended in Budapest. For me, it was a little confining -- too much time on the boat -- but we did get to see a really wide range of sites when we pulling into shore.
