The trip to Germany progresses even in this time of sorrow. We now have the tickets and we'll layover in London for two nights then proceed to Frankfurt aM. All that's left to do now is find an apartment or two for the stay. Looking forward to retiring and really start working on the details of the trip. I have lots of plans and ideas that I'm sure I'll have to narrow down considerably before we leave. Money and time being the major constraints. Getting very excited now that the tickets have been locked in.
