After a wonderful day in Leiden, today was not a very good one. It was embarkation day for our 2nd cruise and lots went wrong.
We began the day with a leisurely breakfast and checked out at 10:30. We were really pleased that we had made the effort, two days ago, to confirm how to travel to St Johann Dock 1 where the boat was to be docked for the day. There was no rush…
Today was Sunday and I had decided to attend church at St Theodor’s Reform Church which turned out to be a 7-minute walk away. It was another cold and damp day, not actually raining but the air , was damp.
On our first morning in Basel, we woke rather late, but breakfast was served until 11:00 so we didn’t miss out. Before going to breakfast, though, we called at Reception to arrange breakfasts for the week and a very nice young man on duty gave us discounts as Senior Citizens…
So, two decisions had been made, we would go to Europe as we had the Schengen Visa and that we would be cruising. Now it was time to decide and act on how and when.
And so the final day of a wonderful holiday in E. Europe has arrived and it turned out to be very special.
A childhood dream was fulfilled in 2006 when we first visited Switzerland. I then had an opportunity in 2008 and now here we are again.
Nadia’s family are really very special people whom we have visited twice since. We would love to have them visit us here in South Africa.
