The Princess and I are leaving for vacation on Wed., and I am getting nervous. I hate to leave my animals, I hate to leave my home, and I hate to leave my comfort zone. We fly into Prague, Czech republic and spend two days there. Board a river boat and cruise down the Danube to Regensburg in Bavaria Cruise to Passau, Germany. Cruise to Salzburg, Austria. Cruise the Wachau Valley/Durnstein To Vienna for days 7 & 8 Cruise to Bratslava, Czechoslovakia Days 10-13 in Budapest Home on day 14 Activities/tours are provided at all stops by the cruise line, or you can venture out on your own. We will be spending an extra day in Budapest. You might ask, "Why do this if it causes you such anxiety?" Well, the Princess tolerates my quirkiness and idiosyncracies and still manages to love/like me. I do this for her. She has always wanted to go to Budapest. Her maternal grandparents immigrated to the US from there. My greatest concern is that the Gypsies may try to reclaim the Princess. Also deep inside in the rational part, I know that this will be another of "Elaine and George's great adventures."
