The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Austria - August 2013 - Part 5

August 18 - Sunday

 

This morning we have docked at Basel, Switzerland and we must be out of our room by 9:00 AM with our bags in the hall. Dick and I were amazed at how efficient the checking out process went. We had settled our bill yesterday afternoon, so all we had to do was pack our last minute items, put our bags out, go to one last delicious breakfast buffet, and wait in the lounge area visiting with fellow passengers. Most of the 133 people…

The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Austria - August 2013 - Part 4

August 16 - Friday

 

This morning's tour began with ride through the canals of Strasbourg in a glass top small boat.  The buildings were very pretty.  Unfortunately, pictures I took through the glass are good reminders for me, but not good enough to share.  Obviously, you get the glare of the glass. We then began a walk through the town with our local guide who pointed out various things.  Ultimately we ended up at the Strasbourg Cathedral. The…

The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Austria - August 2013 - Part 2

August 11 - Sunday

 

After breakfast we packed up and headed for the Amsterdam airport.  Interesting side note, yesterday we had come up from the underground parking garage using one exit, but later found an entrance/exit much closer to the hotel. When we left we used the closer exit.  Somehow we always get twisted around underground - even with subways!

 

The drive to the airport only took about 20-30 minutes and we got the car returned in short…

The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Austria - August 2013 - Part 1

August 7 - Wednesday

 

Flying into Amsterdam in late October of 2008 for a memorable Untours, I was very impressed with what seemed like hundreds of wind turbines out in the ocean turning around and generating power.  This year I was looking forward to the same view, but unfortunately my seat was on the wrong side of the plane or our approach was different.
