It is hard to get a proper group picture when the weather is bad. It was awful at Linderhof Castle. But the skies thankfully cleared in the courtyard of Neuschwanstein. It was a great group under sometimes miserable conditions. Thank you. You earned my respect.
Quiz Winners: Team Tulsa and Team Australia
Cool People: Team Boston and Team Texas

It was a nice and relaxed day. The weather was nice for a change. We were a very cool, international group.
Team Denver wins the water. We had an beautiful early snow in the Alps.

Thankfully we were dry at the lake. It rained pretty hard earlier in Salzburg. There has been much high water and some flooding in the Lake Distric of Austria. It has rained and there has been an early snow melt. Languages on board were French, Arabic, Portugese, Spanish, Russian, Romanian, Chinese, English and German. Thank you.

It was bad weather in the morning. The afternoon was nice though. It is hard getting everyone together sometimes. We had two tours at the Castle. There are audio tours in 10 languages and "live" English and German. Above is my Audio tour and the lower picture is my English tour. Such nice people!

A fine day it was. We were a small group with more than a few "characters." It was an easy day for me. Thank you.

September 18th: On the ship at Lake St. Wolfgang, Austria
How can I explain how awful the weather was? I can't. 56 great people endured the rain. We managed to have a good time but this group deserved better. Thank you to one of the bravest and toughest groups of the season.

September 26th: Hotel Müller parking lot
Nice people, dreadful weather. What can I say? It was cold, wet and foggy. Everybody talks about the weather. Why doesn't someone do something about it?
