|May 26-31, 2017: A Visit With Jeffie in Prague|
|Return to the Index for 2017|
For some time, the Ruckmans (Prudence and Ron) and the Gleims (Nancy and Karl) have been planning a European vacation. They would spend five days in London, five days in Paris, and five days in Berlin. They invited Fred and I to accompany them, but the length of time was a bit much and we'd already been to London and Paris. We decided, however, to join them for their stay in Berlin and then, when they headed home, we would go to Prague to see my niece Jeffie who's been living and working there for almost two years- fulfilling our promise that we would come visit.
In researching ways to get to Berlin and home from Prague, we found that the most economical flights were to be found on Turkish Airlines out of Miami. The outbound leg would be Miami-Istanbul-Berlin; the return leg would be Prague-Istanbul-Miami. (We'd get from Berlin to Prague by train.) Since stopovers in Istanbul were allowed, we decided to take this opportunity to see a city that I doubt we would otherwise have ever visited.
The album pages in this section will be devoted to our time in Berlin- including our trip to get there.
Each day page will have a link that will bring you back here, where you will find the buttons that will enable you to continue through the photo album.
