Wroclaw

A river cruise in Wroclaw.

A layover in Munich allows us to go downtown and hit up an Indian joint for some spicy food (finally). After that it’s a short flight to Wroclaw, Poland where we spend a couple of days visiting my Grandma and Aunt. We toy with the idea of climbing The Monk but opt for some pub-hopping instead following the arrival of my sister and her husband from London. Good wholesome family times come to an end all too quickly and the long journey home begins. Wroclaw to Warsaw to Amsterdam to Newark…wait, what’s that? Northwest flight no longer exists? OK, Amsterdam to JFK it is. Happy reunion with our dog (nice seeing my parents too) and the near 5000-kilometer drive back to Portland eats up the remaining 4 days of our vacation (vs. normal 3…we were tired from jetlag).
