On this day …

The Colour Purple

At times I have been an enthusiastic and regular blogger of my travels, updating with photos and stories every day. At other times and for various reasons I have been conspicuously absent from these pages. Not for lack of travelling though. This morning Facebook reminded me that 5 years ago today we were on our way from Doha to Munich to begin a week-long Danube River cruise, and since we’re not going anywhere for the foreseeable future, I’m going to pretend we’re back on the river and blogging regularly.

You’ll be able to find the posts HERE (once they’re written and published!). I will be dating the posts as though they were written on the day, so they won’t show up at the top of my home page (www.theotherpages.net). If you are keen, you can opt to receive an email each time a post is published by subscribing using the link at the bottom of this and every page on the blog.

For a taste of what’s to come, here is the itinerary of our trip. The cruise went from Passau in Germany to Budapest, Hungary. We had a couple of days in Munch at the start, and added a few days in Budapest at the end of the cruise. We loved every minute of this trip, and are looking forward to another river cruise … one day.
