I’m now sitting in a hotel room in Kleve, Germany wiped out and already full of memories. How can it be that we’ve only been here for less than two days?
What follows is a photo essay in which I try to capture the first day.
After an overnight plane ride and then a whole day of sightseeing, we were ready for a restful 90-minute bus ride to our hotel in Kleve. Unfortunately, the company somehow failed to realize that the fifteen passengers being picked up from the airport would also bring luggage with them when they sent their small shuttle. Fitting everyone and their luggage was quite a trick. Then the driver didn’t know where he was going so drove around in a big circle, bringing us right back to the airport after twenty minutes. After a very cramped two hour ride in which we were treated to German dance music version of “It’s my life,” we arrived at the beautiful Hotel Rilano in Kleve.
