December in Europe


Kathy and I had a very special holiday season this year.  We travelled to Austria and Germany on a 17 day trip that was the fulfillment of a dream I’ve had for 33 years.  I was stationed in Germany for seven years back in the 70s.  I loved my time there and always wanted to go back.  I was finally able to and made it extra special by sharing it with Kathy.  We flew to Frankfurt first and then by train to Vienna where we joined a  Christmas Markets cruise up the Danube.  After the cruise we went on our own to Garmisch in Bavaria where we enjoyed a wonderful stay in the Alps, followed by additional stops in Rothenburg and Wiesbaden (where I lived) before heading home exhausted and craving warm weather again.  I have included my favorite pictures from our trip.  I hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.
