Another Untours moment

Untours moments can extend beyond the end of an Untour. Today something special happened. Earlier this summer I posted a blog and video about a place called Bonchurch on the Isle of Wight as told to us by Lori. We started a conversation with her and her husband, John, while having lunch at Bistrot de la Place at Place du Marche Ste. Catherine not far from Place des Vosges in Paris during our Paris Untour.

Tripblog: St. Goar, Germany September 22-29, 2010

A week in St. Goar, Germany was the second half of an Untour sampler we did in September 2010. Our first week was in Leiden, Holland. We traveled from Holland to Germany on the trains, using our Benelux Rail pass from Untours.



We had never been to Germany so decided that a week on the Rhine would be a nice introduction to the culture. St. Goar is a very good location for this Untour.







The town itself, while a bit… Continue
