Happy!
 
Hi,
On a happy note, my mother and I are taking a trip to Europe next October. We are doing a tour, and at first I was against being with a tour group, but, when I started planning it, I became overwhelmed. I have been to Belgum, France, and Holland, but that was when I was an exchange student (many years ago), and had my host family guiding the way.

We have booked it through Globus. We will spend 15 days. We start in Holland (Amsterdam), and travel through Germany, Austria, Italy, Switerland, France, and England. I am looking forward to it. It will be a whirl wind tour, but what the hell!

I asked my mom tonight what city she is most looking forward to, and she said Lucerne. She went there by ship with her parents when she was 8 years old. Her father was from there. When I was a teenager, she would get letters from her father's family, at that time, I had a boyfriend that was studing german, so his teacher would translate the letters.

At any rate, I would appreciate any advice from Ze Monkey's for this trip. Meals and lodging are all arranged, and I guess mom and I can't wander off too far from the group.....

Awesome! I'm so jealy:)

Going on a tour is a good thing! You get to see so much! And you'll at least have someone there who can help you translate menus and such.

Do be sure that you have the following memorized in your respective languages:

1. Where is the bathroom?
2. Where are the boys?
3. You're cute. Here is the key to my hotel room.

I had the same thought myself but I think she may mean her parents went to Europe by ship?

I know they took a ship from the US to Switerland. I will have to ask her what port they left from. My mom and her family lived in Iowa, so I am certain they did not set sail from there:) NYC would be my guess.

I would love to meet you. I left the schedule at work, but I believe I will be in Amsterdam on the 15th and part of the day on the 16th. I will try to pull up the schedule and post it. The 15th (Monday I think) would be the best. That is when we arrive, and it is a free day. The tour starts on the 16th.

This is the schedule. I am sure I will be in Amsterdam the 15th and 16th of October. It is the scenic delight tour.
