This year’s big trip started a little closer to our summer base in Europe. We were invited to join our friends Scott and Laura for this trip which started with a five day car tour around the country of Romania. Romania was a country that I did not know much about and it turned out to be a wonderful and surprising experience. After the car trip, we got onboard the Uniworld River Duchess, a 365 foot river boat with 130 guests getting ready to sail for Amsterdam (the picture below is the sister ship River Princess in Budapest). Although cabins on a river cruise are smaller than most ocean cruise ships, the River Duchess was very comfortable with great food and an excellent crew.
Here are the pictures of the countries we covered:
