    Very well done Steve, also glad to know you are back home safe and sound.
     
  8. Thanks gang,

    One of the most impressive parts of the visit, besides the big difference in the countries, the different languages, and the cooler weather, was our trip to the former SS concentration camp at Neuengamme. Very sobering, and something everyone should see or experience so this kind of thing never happens again.

    Nope, we were on a tour of the harbor and saw the statue from behind. That's not the view intended for pictures, especially when dozens of people are shooting it from the shore!
     
  9. A great series as usual but wow what an experience for your daughter and you that is just so cool
