THOSE PLACES THURSDAY
Fifty two years, my Grandparents (Charles and Theresa Sherlock) enjoyed a month long vacation in Europe. They visited England, Ireland, Amsterdam, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. It is my dream to follow in their footsteps -- to visit the places that they visited and create my own memories. I won't be able to visit them all in a month long trip like they did, but rather in several separate trips.
I began fulfilling that dream this month on October 1st. My brother invited my husband and I to join him and his wife on a trip to Austria and Germany. How could we say no?
After a very long flight from California to Munich via Chicago, our tour bus drove us to Innsbruck, Austria which took an additional 2 or so hours. We checked into the Grauer Baer Hotel in Innsbruck, exhausted but very excited, and was just in time for dinner with our tour group at the hotel restaurant on that first night.
Our adventure would begin the very next day ....
