    Farewell Koblenz

    June 2, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    We all were up showered fed and bags in the car by 6.40am. We then enjoyed incident free drive from Alpirsbach mainly on autobahn back to Koblenz where we offloaded our bags onto the Patria and returned our rental car to ... this is true .. the ticketing office at the main rail station. (I was relieved to receive confirmation of car having been returned undamaged etc three days later from Europcar).
    We spent the afternoon at Einstein Cafe in the Alstadt of Koblenz .. Perhaps we should have left earlier but we left in time to attend the 5pm cyclists briefing onboard the Patria.
    Again about 60 cyclists on this week's tour which sees us cycling upstream on the Rhine and Neckar Rivers. The forecast hot (low 30s) temperatures are a bit of a concern.
    After dinner I took time to enjoy the sunset over Koblenz as after 8 visits it is highly likely that this will be my last to this lovely German town.. my favourite in fact.
