  1. Yea! I finally recognized something. Name the river, the city, and the significance of the statue.
  2. It is in Cochem on the Moselle. It has something to do with the history of the town.
  3. If you haven't already paid the full amount, I would be leery of doing that in these covid times. We booked a Scenic river cruise for May 2020 and paid the full amount in Sept. 2019 so we could get the discount. When that cruise was canceled, the gave us a future cruise credit, which we booked for June 2021. It is looking like this cruise may also be canceled. If we want a refund we have to wait until the end of 2023. So they will have had a substantial amount of our money for 4 years.
  4. I would suggest you think about the Rhine and Moselle. We cruised this itinerary with AmaWaterways in 2019. The part on the Moselle was our favorite part.
  5. 9 inches of snow on the ground and it is still snowing in SW WA. We were scheduled to get our second shot today, but our local hospital was proactive and rescheduled to next week.
  6. That sounds like a great trip. Please report back on it.
  7. I suspect it is so they can bill for Medicare for the administration of the injection.
  8. Things are looking up in SW WA. My husband and I both volunteer at a free medical clinic, so we were able to get vaccine #1. So far, not even a sore arm. One step closer to being able to travel again.
  9. If you haven't already signed on for the post trip, I agree with Robin. Lucerne is easy to do on your own. You can take the train from Basel. We stayed at the Renaissance Lucerne Hotel. It is about 3 blocks from the train station. You can walk anywhere you want to go in Lucerne. We did take an excursion to Mount Pilatus that involved a boat trip across the lake, then a cog train to the top of Mt Pilatus. You can walk to the boat dock also. Lucerne is beautiful, so I wouldn't miss it. You can take a train back to Zurich if your flight is leaving from there. The train station is in the
  10. Don't know if anyone has mentioned the Moselle, but I would make sure that the Rhine cruise included it. It has some very pretty small ports and castles that I would not want to miss.
  11. Yes, you are correct. The Sternwheeler river cruises stop just up river. I am fortunate to live just just 3 miles from there. There is a beautiful park, with a walking trail. We go down there to walk when it is not raining. If you get thirsty after your walk, you can stop in at McMennimins, or Ahles Point for a libation. The totem poles were carved by Chief Don Lelooska out of a 700 year old red cedar. He started the project for the 1962 Seattle worlds fair, but did not finish them in time. The port of Kalama purchased them later. The tallest one is laying on the ground at this po
  12. We stayed at the Hilton Old Town and really enjoyed it. The rooms are large and you can walk anywhere you want to go from there.
  13. I am so impressed with your cooking; especially after working all day and then coming home and making that. Looks delicious.
