Evie Mohrfeld: Senior Travel group heads to Germany

Our latest trip to Europe was on the Emerald cruise ship, considered the Jewel of the Rhine.

We cruised through France, Germany, Amsterdam and ended with two days in Lucerne, Switzerland. We made the trip carrying our COVID vaccine cards with us the entire time.

This 11-day trip had been rescheduled a couple of times, but we are feeling comfortable and prepared. In next week’s column, I will share some moments from our tour and talk about the scenery, castles and historic sites.
