We were able to share some key events with our two grandchildren Rosalie and Frank. We were on hand for their birthdays, Rosalie’s dance recital, the solar eclipse, summer swimming, and Halloween. We also enjoyed Thanksgiving with them at Catherine & Brian's.
Although we really like to travel, even for us, this was a big travel year -- three weeks in Hawaii and three weeks in Europe, plus several shorter trips.
Four island with plenty of good food and snorkeling.
Amsterdam, then up to Rhine to Switzerland.
We visited Lucerne, Bern, Jungfraujock, Zurich, and Chur. At Chur, we switched to the Bernina Express scenic train to travel to Italy.
The highlights included Varenna, Castelrotto, Bolzano, Padova, Venice, and Verona.
