Map of our Itinerary
To celebrate 25 years of marriage, Dan & Kendra took a one week cruise on the Rhine River. The posts will be written by Kendra, but edited & posted by Joshua. We drove to Baltimore, MD on the Monday immediately after the NCFIC Worship of God conference and flew to London, where we spent about 5 hours in the airport before our flight to Basel, Switzerland. It was cool and rainy when we arrived at our ship, and we had about an hour before the welcome aboard celebration. The ladies were presented with a rose, we were introduced to the ship's crew, then onto dinner. We were very well fed and had friendly service all week.
After dinner we walked along the river to the cathedral in Old Town Basel, where we were surprised to see a carnival, possibly leftover from the Octoberfest. Erasmus died in Basel, on his way from Frieburg to Brabant. He is famous for many writings, most notably his Greek New Testament translation, which later became known as the Textus Recptus.
