The Rubenstein family recently returned from a 12-night Baltic cruise that sailed to Amsterdam; Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; and Copenhagen, Denmark. Some of the sites they visited included the Anne Frank House and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Berlin Wall in Berlin, the Hermitage and Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg, and each of the city centers in Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen. Lisa, the youngest daughter and avid traveler, said that 12 nights were nowhere near enough to see all of the sights and take in all the history and culture of this part of the world. She said, “While the food in southern Europe definitely trumps the food in northern Europe, nothing compares to the beauty and history of the Baltic.” Pictured (from left) are Jim, Barbara, Julie and Lisa Rubenstein in front of the remains of the Berlin Wall.
