HERE WE ARE ... the group I was with most of the time on the walking tours through Christmas Markets in the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland. It was quite an adventure for all.
A Rhine Riverboat Xmas Market Cruise ... we lived on the riverboat for twelve days, then disembarked for the last leg of the trip in Basel, Switzerland where we stayed in a very modern hotel - quite a contrast to all the lovely European historic sites we visited.
This trip was a Godsend to me, gave me time and space to gather my thoughts and plans for the future after such a trying, eventful, two years past. It was a jumping off space, actually, for me. Leaving everything behind - sadness, stress, worry. It felt like an opening up of a new life. Now that I'm home again, I feel completely refreshed and sorted out.
Terrific trip! I suggest everyone do it at least once in your lifetime. Grand Circle Travel was my host.
Happy Holidays to you all!
