Trip Snippets...

We had a great time on our River Cruise through Europe. We got to see parts of the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary... great sights, sounds, and eats!!

Here is a sampling of what we saw....

A Holocaust Memorial in Nijmegen, Netherlands

The amazing buildings, color and cathedral in Cologne, Germany

Passing by the Marksburg Castle outside of Koblenz, Germany 
(we actually had stopped in Koblenz and 
took a tour of this castle... very cool!)

The Melk Abbey (Germany)

A great little alley in Salzburg, Austria

Me, hanging out with Napoleon (what a stiff) in the city square of Bratislava, Slovakia

A nighttime river cruise of Budapest

Oh, and here is a sampling of our eats!!...

This was an incredible appetizer aboard ship. A crab salad covered with salmon, a little herb mustard, with a little selection of caviar scattered about the plate!!! DELICIOUS!!!

A Great Man...

Director and actor Sydney Pollack dies at 73.

After fighting cancer for nine months, Sydney died on Monday afternoon, surrounded by his family.

He was a shining light in Hollywood... and he will be greatly missed.
