Europe - August 2010


Travelers: Jeanne & Ken Stutt, Charlotte, NC

I thought we had made our last trip to Europe, until I ran across good sale on a river cruise from the North Sea(Amsterdam) to the Black Sea (Bucharest, Romania) - 23 days. We had wanted to do this trip for a while.

As long as we were in Europe, this seemed to be a good opportunity to check out how Kiel has changed in the last 20 years or so. I was born in Kiel, left in 1954 and had not been back since the the early 80's. I don't have any more relatives there, I just wanted to see what they had done to the city.

So we'll go over a few days before the cruise, fly to Hamburg, then make our way to Kiel, which is about 60 miles north-east of Hamburg. Then we'll take to train to Amsterdam to join the cruise.

This is a condensed version of the trip. Stages are linked once I have something to report.
