Shortly before we left on the canal cruise last year, Sam & Yost (you remember, our friends with whom we cruised around Italy for Mike’s and Yost’s 50th birthday) called to tell us they had booked a river cruise and wondered if we wanted to join them.
While we rarely do two “big” cruises back to back, the opportunity to lose our river cruise virginity with such good friends was too good to pass up…so we said sure!
We fly from Houston on April 13, board the Viking Njord on April 16 in Passau Germany, cruise down the Danube disembarking on April 23 in Budapest Hungary and fly home on April 26th.
Our ship…ahem, boat (it has been tough learning to call them a boat rather than a ship)
Over the next 15 days before we leave, I will try to share some of our planning and for the trip. Once we leave, since Viking provides free internet aboard, I hope I will be able to do a daily posting about our travels.
Come on along…it should be a fun couple of weeks! oh and despite today’s date..this isn’t an April Fool’s day joke…promise.
