Thanks for your trip report and photos.
ALWAYS enjoy them!
Best wishes to you and Mike for your future planned trips!

Munich and Salzburg have been seen, but Prague is an unreachable gem now.
Bon voyage!

Hi John and Glenn!

Just got back from 17 days in Bavaria, Salzburg lakes area, and Prague. Amazing trip - beautiful area and people! Now I need a vacation to Aruba to do nothing! Laughing

Hi Amy--John and Glenn also! I always love your reports, Amy, enough detail to be interesting with pictures! Also, good recommendations for places to eat or dine, (depending on the price!} I've been following them for years.

John, I read your trip report detailing your problem with the busted hip! Not pleasant! Sorry you couldn't make the trip this year, but there's always next year!

Unfortunately, I think our trips to Aruba are at a close. My problem started right after we got back in Nov. 2015. Lets just say it was abdominal and involved surgery.

Well, I wound up with a case of C-Dif. It's a bacterial infection which is difficult to cure to say the least. After several courses of antibiotics, completely useless, I finally got a fecal transplant, a new therapy which had only been approved for people my age recently since it was considered experimental. It worked! For the record, I'll be 88 in September,.

It left me with my gut all messed up so I don't dare get too far from a porcelain facility. Arthritis in my knees doesn't help either, aggravated by a long hospital stay.

Hey, I don't worry about it, I work pretty well from the waist up! And I still get down to our summer place though I haven't been to the beach yet. And it's about time I shut up!

Keep the reports coming! --And I'm not reading this over to edit it!

John...

John, I'm so sorry to hear this. You've been to Aruba so many times over the years that I'm sure you'll always have great memories. At least you have a summer place to go to for vacations. Smile

Hope everyone stays on the healthy track!

Loved the trip repot, as always. Would love to see some pics (hint)

Hi Glenn, I think I owe you an email, hope you and Donna are doing well.

John - I am so sorry to hear of your illness, I hope that you do get to your summer place real soon, and enjoy the beach.

JohnT - sorry no Aruba this year, but Treasure Island sounds like a plan. I was there many years ago, and had a blast!

I am looking forward to Aruba this October, I am still recouping from Spinal Surgery in May. Currently doing Physical Therapy and told I am doing excellent, so I am hoping to keep it that way. I am finally able to walk pain free,


I also hope all stays on the the healthy track.

I agree - health is everything (especially when you want to travel) so hopefully everyone can stay healthy and happy! Very Happy
