Roz and Byron Cooley and Kathy and Will Wiener have shared four adventures together, including their summertime 12-day Rhine and Moselle river cruise. It started in Basel, Switzerland, and continued through Strasbourg, Baden-Baden, Heidelberg, Koblenz, Cochem and Trier and ended in Amsterdam. They toured numerous fairy-tale castles (including Heidelberg and Reichsburg Castle, which was the inspiration for Disney’s Cinderella castle) and rode bikes along the Rhine through Moselle Valley, sampling wine at a family winery. A wow moment was seeing the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with unique rock formations and a microclimate, from a chairlift above. Maybe you will be lucky to partake in the Swiss and Dutch chocolates and fabulous cheeses they brought back to Houston.
