This vacation idea came to us via Werner and Geri Seidel. They visited us about a year ago and invited us along on a trip that would include a month of travel in Europe and the celebration of their 50th anniversary. Sounded like fun to us so we signed on...
Our group consisted of 8 couples in total...

Don and Elaine Schaber
Wayne and Gail Leiske
Sherwin and Shirley Goerlitz
Barry and Gail Grabo
Werner and Geri Seidel
Ewalt and Terri Lang
Herb and Geri Kennedy
Couple no. 8 was Byron and Joyce Grabo. They left a day earlier and we did not meet them until it was time to board Cruise ship no. 1.
Some of these people had been classmates in high school. Some are cousins of Mother and most all of them come from the community of Rosebud/Beiseker in Alberta. Great company for a month of good laughs and fun.
That is how it all began...we said goodbye to Calgary and flew into the sunshiny night.
Flying out of Frankfurt on our next leg of the journey, I noticed that there seemed to be some major flooding...
By the time we landed in Barcelona and had checked into Hotel EuroPark, it was late afternoon. Sherwin and I did not book with the others because we were so late in our arrangements so we were on our own.
We did a walk through the streets near our hotel...
and had our first dinner at a Tapas Bar where you can choose a number of single items to make up your dinner. Economical and experimental for us.
Finally we said, 'Enough', and hauled ourselves off to bed.
This hotel is one we would both recommend.
Stay with me for the rest of the story...
God bless you all and Be Well!
