2023.04 Amsterdam and Berlin (Part 1)

Our next trip was another family trip.  Originally, the idea was we’d accompany my mom to Paris in the fall of 2023.  That plan and destination disappeared once she found out that there was a once-in-a-lifetime exhibit of Vermeer’s works at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, during the spring of 2023.  After a bit of juggling, the plan turned into celebrating Easter with relatives in Germany, a bunch of days in Berlin, and then Vermeer.  We would then return home, and she’d continue onward to England to visit a family friend before she’d return home.

2021.12 Germany and christmas markets (part 1)

Before March 2020, we had a few ideas on upcoming trips.  One included traveling to Germany to visit Christmas Markets.  Obviously, due to a global pandemic and travel being significantly reduced and filled with ever changing requirements it wasn’t until December 2021 that we traveled.  And even then, traveling conditions changed, but we were able to make the journey…
