Arrived home yesterday afternoon after a long day of travel. We left the ship in Amsterdam and 5:30 am (11:30pm Eastern). Because of fog in Paris we were delayed an hour, so instead of two hours to change planes we had about 50 minutes. We had to change terminals and of course go through security again. We got to the gate just as they were boarding. There is only one flight a day from Paris to Pittsburgh so I was REALLY glad we made it.
I started getting a sore throat on Saturday evening and it wall full blown by Sunday morning. I swear that flight was the longest in history. (Not really - the flight from Yugoslavia was longer). The flight over was 6 hours, but the return was 8. It seemed like forever!
We got home about 4 pm on Sunday. I managed to to stay up till 8:30, but John was out at 7.
We have decided that that we like the trip on the Danube better than the Rhein. The northern part of the Rhein valley is very industrial the Saturday afternoon/evening trip was not very pretty, however if you wanted a showcase of industrial Germany I think we passed every major company along the Rhein.
We're having a absolutely incredible fall day here. The colors are magnificent. We didn't seen nearly as much color on our travels.
It's always good to get home - now to unpack and do laundry.
