European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 4

We slept ok last night, but the ship was still rocking this morning.  Karen refused to get out of bed.  I had to get outside and get fresh air, so I left her and went up.  It was actually ok for sleeping in the dark with the boat rocking, but I simply couldn’t spend the… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 4

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 3

The whole day today was cool and cloudy and the ship never stopped rocking.  Most people on board were feeling very queasy. I found that if I stayed outside or was walking inside, I didn’t feel too bad.  If I sat down inside, I soon felt sick again, but I could sit down outside and… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 3

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 2

We woke up fully recovered this morning and were promptly kick out of our room by the steward who wanted to make our beds.  There will obviously be no lying around in bed in the morning on this ship. We spent most of the day in port at Tilbury.  We thought about going ashore, but… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 2

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 1

This morning after breakfast we got everything all packed up and then checked out at 11:00 am.  We hung around the lobby with all our stuff until 12:30 and then called a taxi to take us to the docks. We boarded the ship with amazingly little trouble, although they lost Angel for awhile. They did… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 1

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 6

This morning at breakfast, our waiter slipped us each an extra piece of raisin toast because we both got excited when we saw it.  🙂   I don’t know what else we had for breakfast though. Today is our last day here and even though it is cloudy, we decided we’d better go to the Euro… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 6

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 5

This is the longest we have stayed in any one place since we arrived in Europe.  Its too bad that Karen and I hadn’t arranged to keep the car for a bit longer so we could have explored more – but its not long now until our ship leaves and I guess we’ll be on… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 5

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 4

This morning we packed our bags and headed back to good old 27 in the Central.  (I guess our hotel must be the Central Hotel – amazing how I figured that out).  The guys at the desk greeted us as long lost friends and helped us carry our stuff back up to our room, including… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 4

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 3

Well it is Thursday and we have to move to another hotel since a tour bus is coming and this one is booked for the night.  Unfortunately there were no cancellations.  They allowed us to leave most of our stuff in their storage room, since we will be back tomorrow – so that really helps.… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 3

European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 1

Today we take Libby back to Brussels to turn her in.  We got up at 6:30, since we had no idea if we would have trouble finding the garage or not.  Knowing us, we probably would. Surprisingly enough, we found the place without any problems at all.  The guy checked her over and wrote ‘no… Continue reading European Vacation – Rotterdam – Day 1

European Vacation – Sassenheim to Rotterdam

After breakfast with 50 guys this morning, we packed up and headed for Rotterdam.  Don’t ask me about the 50 guys because I have no idea – LOL We were glad to find out that the hotel had an elevator because it took us 2 trips each to get all our stuff out of the… Continue reading European Vacation – Sassenheim to Rotterdam
