One of my favorite travel memories from childhood is of Grindelwald, Switzerland. But would it be the same place 35 years later?
Settled centuries ago by rugged Italian ranchers and farmers, surrounded by Alpine mountains, and shot through with icy rivers and waterfalls lies the small commune of Gordola, a part of Switzerland that few tourists have experienced.
Cathedrals, castles, flowers, and first beers in Cologne and Brühl, Germany.
Mighty fortresses and culinary works of art in pastoral Luxembourg.
Ever the romantic, Mr. Michael Ballard has planned several stops on this trip that are anniversary gifts to me. One of those was a visit to the Champagne region of France.
Wishing Wanda well from one of the least-visited countries in Europe.
Liechtenstein is fun to say.
