Trains, Planes, Boats and Automobiles
Posted September 28, 2012on:
I’m back after a most enjoyable holiday with my dear husband. We visited five countries via seven flights,one train ride, a rental car and a river boat cruise. We saw ancient castles, interestuing museums, abbeys, cathedrales, beaches and many pastry shops. Over the next few weeks I plan to share some of our adventures.
To breifly summarize, we flew from Vancouver to London, then on to Madrid, Spain where we caught a train to Alicante, Spain. There we picked up a rental car and drove to Orihuela Costa, on the Costa Blanca, where we spent five days with my in-laws. We had not seen them for three years so it was great to spend some time together. We did some day trips and chilled out at the many beaches. After a very busy and stressful year, I needed this.
We returned the car to Alicante and boarded a plane to Dussledorf, Germany and then on to Nuremberg, Germany. It was there that we joined the Sound of Music river cruise that took us down the Danube to Budapest, Hungary, stopping at many interesting spots including Vienna, Austria. I still can’t believe I visited all these places I had often read about in books. We learned so much more about the culture and the history. Along the way we met many amazing people and ate too much of the local food. Every country tries to outdo the other when it comes to pastries.
Another dream come true for this girl!!
