Happy Traveler CommentI want to thank you [Glynna] for suggesting the Avalon boat trip through the Rhine River. We had a superb time. As I reflect back I am in awe of the history in Europe. The architecture is stunning. I would recommend the trip to all that inquire about it. The finale of a week in Holland was the icing on the cake. Did I say we had a WONDERFUL time? Thank you so much. — Sharon F.
