Happy to know that you are safely home, Henny.  I've just had a wonderful yet exhausting day walking around Copenhagen.  Headed home myself tomorrow and will be continuing to work on my review later tonight and on my 8 hour flight home.  If I'm not too tired and if I'm happy with it I may get it posted Sunday night; otherwise Monday.  So much to tell.... I feel so lucky, privileged, honored, and blessed.  OMG, indeed!

Oh, shoot! I just looked at Alex's cruise dates, the second half of August. Just our luck if we get to Dublin and Alex is performing - still 1500 miles away. Drat! Oh, well; trip dates aren't in stone yet. DF and MP have inspired me.

Yay! Thanks :)

In The Sound of Music she sounds like Julie Andrews. She sounds great. Over the Rainbow is a little different but she still sings it very well. And White Christmas is very lovely. Alex can sing Christmas music any time.
