Our Story

Traveling from Budapest to Amsterdam along the mighty Danube, Main and Rhine is a trip none of us will soon forget. From visiting the markets in Budapest, strolling through Vienna and the Hofburg Palace, touring the Benedictine abbey in Melk, having a pint at the brewery in the Weltenburg Monastery, seeing how Nuremberg and other cities have rebuilt after the war, driving along the Romantic Road to Rothenberg, and taking a canal ride through Amsterdam afforded us wonderful opportunities to experience new things and develop a great comradery as we learned together. Living on the luxurious river boat for the two weeks gave us come some truly breathtaking views along with an incredible culinary experience.
