Day Five: Wachau Valley and Melk Abbey aboard Viking River Cruise's "Tor"
Melk Abbey took my breath away          Today, we

Today, we awoke the find the Longship Tor cruising the stretch of the Danube between the village of Krems and Melk. This beautiful stretch of the river is as far from the urban centers we'd just visited as could be. Here, medieval towns and ruined castles compete with terraced vineyards that ...

Day Three: Budapest and Rolling on the River

Here's a great way to enjoy the season's best Asparagus.  Enjoy!
I could eat our local asparagus until it was coming out of my ears. Thanks to growers in Mexico and Peru, asparagus is now a 12 month a year vegetable in New York and almost everywhere else. However, nothing but nothing comes close to the glorious look and taste of the asparagus grown right over ...

Who doesn't love a great Pulled Pork Sandwich and coleslaw to go along with it!.  Here's a super way to make the best of both. 
Our New York City kitchen is only slightly larger than a bread box but certainly not large enough to store a slow cooker. So I keep ours in Bridgehampton. Not that I am a particular fan of the slow cooker. The idea of having to brown meat in one pan and make sauce in another seems to defeat the ...

Day Three: Viennese Waltz

As night fell, Viking River Tor passed through the first of a series of locks that will bring us up river and raise the ship a staggering 1300 feet before we arrive in Nuremberg. This particular lock put us in the extraordinary position of being able to touch the walls of the lock from our ...

Despite having not slept since Wednesday, the city of Budapest beckoned and won over the comforts of the Tor, one of 29 Viking River longships that ply the Danube in both directions. I finally arrived in Budapest about 4 pm and there I joined the last stragglers on our first Viking Coach trip ...
