Coming home -- May 20
We had reached the point where the only focus of our trip was the final part of getting home.  Travelling on our own we wanted to get to the airport early to ensure we had time for everything. Headed across to the train station and purchased tickets to Schi...

Hotel #3 - May 19 - 20
Just to remind everyone, Andy had booked our hotels and trains and such for us.  He had concerns about this last hotel but it wasn't at the very top of the prices nor was it at the very bottom and the reviews stated that it had a good location. So when he a...

Train to Amsterdam - May 19
Great breakfast at the hotel.  When it is this good and is included it does make sense to enjoy it. Decided to take a tram tour of the city to see the downtown and all.  The hotel didn't mind holding our bags for us and the tram is just across the road.  On...

Hotel #2 - Karlsruhe, May 17 - 19

Karlsruhe Zoogarten, May 17
When we had lived in Germany, one of the things we did with young children was to go to the zoo.  I clearly remember seeing the flamingos but they had a more open enclosure and a pond.  Things have changed and yet the flowers and beauty and size and gondola...

Basel to Karlsruhe, May 17
Got a fairly early start but wasted time looking for my regular breakfast.  Andrea did get some things from a small variety type store in the train station but certainly didn't compare to what we had both become very used to. Loved the architect of the trai...

Hotel #1 - Ramada
Thought it would be better to track the hotels as separate entries. Our room on ship is shown in the Day 2 post.  After the cruise we had made arrangements to spend several days travelling on our own and Andy had the responsibility of making all the arrange...
