Come travel the world with us...
When I was a kid, I was fascinated to learn that Sir Edmund Hillary, of New Zealand, and Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa from Nepal, had become the first people to climb Nepal’s 29,028 feet Mt. Everest, the tallest peak in the world. Their historic climb happened on May 29, 1953. I hoped that someday I would get to see that mountain, which the Nepalese people proudly call “The top of the world.”
Hi, We are Tom and Greta, from Dana Point, California. In April, we fly to Dusseldorf, Germany, from where we will be taking the train to Paris. We will be staying in France for 18 days, spending time in Paris and hopefully taking many side trips by train. We have purchased Rail Europe train passes for 10 days during our stay.
In February, 2016, my partner Greta and I joined 40 others on a person-to-person educational tour of Cuba for eight days. It is an amazing country. Click on the Read More box below for the whole story.
My partner Greta and I are headed for Austria in April, 2015. We will be staying in Graz, the second largest city in Austria for about a month. During our stay, we will be traveling throughout the country and into some adjoining countries by train.
At the end of our month stay, we will go to Budapest and board A Viking River Cruise longboat for a two week trip to Amsterdam.
The Orient Express
In April, 2007, Tom and Greta had the train trip of a lifetime: A ride on the historic Orient Express train from Venice to Prague to Paris. Ride along with us on that trip for a detailed description with lots of pictures.
