For those who have read my history of unfortunate wedding anniversaries, we’re doing it again – for my maintenance anniversary. DH got this great last minute deal that he couldn’t refuse. So on Dec 7th off we go for 2 weeks on the Rhine.
It will be a lovely trip – the Christmas Markets, beginning in Basel and ending in Amsterdam. There will be lots of walking tours in cold weather which burn extra calories, but there will also be lots of FOOD, all paid for in advance. First order of business will be to restrain my thrifty “get my money’s worth” gene. Wine is also included, so I’ll have to keep that in mind too.
I once wrote that I don’t deprive myself when on vacation, but neither do I plan to overdo it. River cruises aren’t as food laden 24/7 as ocean cruising, but still it will be a lot more than if I were cooking for myself. My favorite food has always been something someone else made and put in front of me.
We will see. Maybe I’ll pack all my smallest clothes.
