2017 Europe – a series of unfortunate events

Evening over Amsterdam

In September 2017 we headed back to Amsterdam for a Rhine cruise ending in Budapest – but with a ten-day extension visiting Cracow, Warsaw, Berlin, and Prague. We’d done the Amsterdam – Budapest trip before – only the other way. This time we’d explore some of the other options we hadn’t taken last time. Or at least, as best as we were able. Sometimes life doesn’t happen according to plan.

Europe – a series of unfortunate events. Day one in Amsterdam, and arriving mid-evening after a long, long flight from Australia.

Zanvoort aan zee – and an unexpected trip. We visit Amsterdam’s beach suburb (pass) and have a nasty encounter on a tram.

A lazy Amsterdam weekend. We mooch around town, meet a refugee, and I take some photos.

A visit to Bonn. Romans, medieval history and post-war Germany. Along with a reminder of the Nazis.

Rudesheim, the Rhine Gorge and Miltenberg. Life’s changing along the rivers. I fear pretty soon the area won’t be much more than a theme park.
