    on the River

    September 16, 2016 in Germany

    So all six of us headed out of St Goar...
    We got a couple of kms out and Berns bike continued making its funny clunking noise, so the Parrotts headed back with Bern (to see Richard the bike shop guy), and Illy and I continued on.
    Today was much cooler (cloudy), and so made for nice riding. We got some lovely scenery today

    Mayen

    August 2, 2016 in Germany

    Heading back towards Koblenz we were confronted by two closed roads, so after following the 'Umleitung' for each we finally arrived in Mayen significantly later than we'd planned.

    We believe stopover used to be beside a park but in the park's place was a the base for a tarmaccing company, with lorries shifting gravel until quite late. Not to worry, it wasn't that noisy and after the drive we were glad of the rest.

    Waking up to rain the next morning we shouldered our rainbow coloured umbrellas and wandered around town. Mayen is yet another place with a beautiful town square and interesting looking churches. We picked up some fruit from an extremely cheerful market seller and a few other bits and bobs that were on our shopping list. Two of the people we bought things from asked whether we were Dutch! Will's German is improving to the point he can understand much of what people say to him and even Vicky is getting more confident asking for things.

    Bendorf

    August 2, 2016 in Germany

    After passing through Koblenz and reacquainting ourselves with the Mosel and Rhein as well as some of the city's stunning old buildings, we visited a Halfords type store where we bought an aluminium warning plate for the back of the bike rack. We'd had our eyes open for one for a while as they are required in our winter destination of Italy. The store in Mayen had told us their branch near Koblenz had one but we were still relieved when the assistant re-emerged from the stock room brandishing it.

    The first stopover we travelled to in Vallendar couldn't be accessed as it was on the other side of a low railway bridge, the second didn't have much grass for our Poppy dog and Vicky noticed broken glass on the spot Poppy had chosen to squat on so we moved on and found a stopover signed nearby. It had no services but it was free and quiet, with overgrown areas providing grass. Trees grew within and around it so we were happy.

    Oh the Cologne

    May 29, 2017 in Germany

    Spent the morning in Cologne. For the first hour we had a guide showing us some of the old town. There are beautiful old buildings and a huge gothic Cathedral. The Cathedral was hit by 14 bombs in WW2, but has pretty well been parched up now. We then wandered around the shops, went into a cafe and had a cuppa before buying some eau de cologne. We couldn't find the original brand so we bought 4711. As our ship had sailed as soon as we disembarked, we were coached to Bonn to rejoin it. This meant we had a nice drive through the town of Bonn. Back on board in time for lunch. Janette's caught a cold so had a sleep and I sat up the pointy end and watched the Rhine roll under us.
    Tonight - dinner at Namemby Castle - wow! The Princess and her daughter live there in a private wing. We were free to explore the rest of the castle and the garden until the gong sounded for dinner. Dinner was served in the Mirror Hall - three courses with a piano recital between each. APT are involved in helping young piano masters, and it was one of these who played for us tonight. Julia Polinskaja, born in Moscow, raised in Hamburg, was our pianist. Don't know if it was appreciated by a few, but most knew how good she is.
    We stay here in Bonn tonight and set off again at 5.30 am tomorrow. Tomorrow the Rhine Gorge. J&J
