We left here on a Saturday morning, though not as early as we'd expected, since our first flight was delayed. Oops! We had a few minutes' worry about whether we'd make our connection, but all went well. Four flights and 21 hours later, we were in Basel, Switzerland, where we boarded the Viking Helvetia to begin our trip. Of course, it was evening by then, so the ship was ready to leave.
That's enough for one day. ;) I'll add another installment soon!
