Brittany, Alsace and Rhine Cruise, 6 weeks

We leaving early Sunday morning to:

  • learn more about D-Day as we stay in Normandy, Arronmaches-les-bain
  • explore the walled city where Corsairs, thieves and rogues spent booty and prepared for more raids – Saint Malo
  • eat fresh oysters off the boats in Brittany, Cancale
  • walk the Broceliande Forest, where many believe was the true location of King Arthur and his round table
  • stay in a cider farm, walk the beaches of Finistere (the end of the earth), wander medieval towns
  • commune with ancient stones, which are older than the Great Pyramids or Stonehenge
  • listen to great Celtic music, in France
  • drive the wine trail in Alsace
  • visit a German spa (in the nude)
  • As always, we hope eat and drink very well, and take lots of notes.

We are also going to travel “Rick Steves style”, only a carry-on and a tote each. – I think….

Barry and I hope that you will “join” us by following along.  You can subscribe with your email to get updates.

I am not going to do the email journals this trip, but do have a spiffy new WordPress site, with a little help from my amazing daughter.   I am putting formerly retired blogs back online:  Polynesia, South America, Spain, Greece, Italy, Alaska and more….OH, and please do leave a comment, we love hearing from you.

We are only traveling with a carry on and a small tote.
