The Journey Begins


I am going on a river cruise! It had been planned for nearly a year, charges paid, arrangements made. According to the travel brochure from Premier World Discovery, it is “Munich’s Oktoberfest & Danube River Cruise,” featuring 2 nights in a Bavarian Village and 7 nights aboard the Amadeus Queen, a riverboat. We were already planning a trip to Germany when the brochure was posted at the local senior center. Perfect! They were marketing to an older population, so it would be less strenuous and easier for me to keep up with the group. I forgot about the other trips we had been looking at with AAA and signed on the dotted line.
