Vacation on the River: Choosing a River Cruise

I’ve decided: a river cruise looks like an excellent way to spend a holiday. As a means to get right to the heart of a country’s history and culture, river cruises can be one-of-a-kind experiences both on and off the boat. For our upcoming six-year anniversary, then, I thought that I could surprise my partner with a great German river cruise. She’s from Germany—I’m from the United States, where we both live currently—and she’s wanted to go on a river cruise for a long time.

I think taking her back to Germany for the cruise would make the surprise even more special. The finances are in-place to make it happen and we have the free time, so it’s a perfect opportunity to celebrate. Now all I need to do is pick the right cruise!

A couple of months ago, while teaching the Present Perfect, I got to talking with a student about achievements. I asked him if he could tell me some of the things he has achieved that he is proudest of. He thought about it for a little while and then told me a story.
