Vacation in Europe

Happy Thanksgiving from the Front door of the Hapsburg Winter Castle.
We spent Thanksgiving in Europe.  Back in July I was watching the morning news and saw a commercial that invited us to come see the Christmas lights in Europe on a river Cruise down the Danube.  The price seemed okay but it didn't include airfare.  I figured what the heck, call the company and get the rest of the story. I just knew that it will be too much money once airfare was added in.  So I called and chatted with the travel agent, asked a few questions and ended up with round trip airfare from Denver to Germany for $400.00 per person plus and upgrade .  I couldn't say no to that.  So I asked the family if they wanted to spend Thanksgiving in Europe.

Welcome to Passau.  Well this is the view across the river Ilk from Passau.
  Here are a few (very few) of some of the more than 600 pictures I took.  Kira took more.
