Thank you, @D’Ellyn Dottir ! I am excited about going to visit, for sure ! I read some of the information about getting a passport, and it said that could take up to 6 months, which puts us into cold winter weather; so it would probably not happen until next spring or summer. I just LOVE traveling on a train, and one of my deepest wishes was always to be able to take one of those cross-country vacations by train. Being able to enjoy the scenery and travel in the Netherlands and Germany by train will be most awesome !
