Couple celebrate 40th anniversary with river cruise

Tennessee residents Paul and Carole Turner returned from a Christmas river cruise at the end of December and wrote a travelogue of their recent journey.

The journey begins with the couple wondering how to celebrate their landmark Ruby wedding anniversary, and after tossing around a number of ideas, the decision to enjoy a luxury cruise along the Rhine became the clear favourite.

Beginning in Amsterdam and ending in Basel, Switzerland, the Turners enjoyed a luxury cruise along the romantic Rhine River. The perfect way for them to celebrate the longevity of their marriage, the couple enjoyed visiting some of Europe's most fascinating cities, tasting the delights found in the various German Christmas markets and marvelling at the castles and vineyards along the majestic river.

Both Paul and Carole returned from their river cruise with the feeling that it was the perfect way to celebrate their life together.
