... food, transportation (Claire too), museums, etc. (Our flights were paid for with 120k miles and about $120 fees and taxes. Super good deal, as long as you don't mind flying coach.)

We enjoyed a picturesque drive through countryside and small villages. The most interesting thing we passed was a 500 year-old Low German house with a thatched roof. It used to house both farmers and their livestock and is still used for animals today. We arrived at a workshop where there was a ...
