Evelyn's Blog for NOV 19, 2017 - RIVER CRUISE ON THE DANUBE


My husband Marv and I will be river cruising through Eastern Europe in December while you lovely people are holiday shopping in the United States. Our itinerary is as follows: Prague, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, Melk, Vienna, and Budapest.  

The cruise is also titled:  CHRISTMAS MARKETS ON THE DANUBE.

I asked: What are the Christmas Markets?

Answer: Christmas Markets are a major attraction for tourists and locals. 



Repeat visitors talk about the aromas of potato pancakes, gingerbread, cinnamon, and hot glug. 

I want to look at folk art. I promised our formatter to bring her a troll. Her husband is part Norwegian and they display a couple of trolls all year long. I asked her to send me a photo so that I don't bring her trolls she already has.


There will be lots of Christmas ornaments, hand-carved wooden crafts, candies and pastries. We will stuff some of this in our luggage for holiday gifts.




We will NOT be thinking of you shoppers in the U.S. — bleary-eyed, exhausted, hungry, and cranky.  



We WILL be thinking about smart people who buy on line.

NOTE: Early in 2018, I will be adding two new novels: THE DINNER PARTY and THE PIANO PLAYER.  They are both ready to publish, but I'm holding back. You have enough choices for 2017, don't you think? Until then, Marv and I will be eating turkey, and then sailing.
