We had taken passage on a freighter named the Sunadele. The cost of this part of the adventure was $190 U.S. The Sunadele was a Swiss ship! Since Switzerland is a landlocked country, who knew they had ships?
On Monday Nov 16th, we left the St Lawrence Seaway heading across the Atlantic for Bristol England.
By December we had driven Louie from the Netherlands, through Germany and to Innsbruck, Austria. Innsbruck is one of Austria's best known and fanciest winter resorts. I wrote in a letter home that the skiing was great but that the Europeans don’t groom their slopes very well. I wrote that “they don’t have moguls on their slopes, they have sheer drop offs.”
From this point on, I will post a diary entry that corresponds to the date 48 years ago. Please take a minute to add where you were then.
