We are really sticking out with our French numberplate. All what you see here is German & Dutch ones. Unbelievable busy with holiday makers and we must say, it is like walking in Holland. Also lots of Belgiums, but they sound like they come from Limburg. We went the next day again to Bernkastel just looking at the masses of people, that walk around aimlessly. Carrying backpacks, holding kids and have dogs on the line. The kids do not really want to be there but are bought by ice creams, or lollies. Very amusing to see how they go about it. We also walked around, looking at all the shops that have their wares stalled out in the already very small streets. You even see so now and than a car wurming it's way through there as well. We also visited Cochem. That is even a bigger disaster, you do not walk there, you float between the masses, hoping for a quiet place to escape. That is than usual a cafe to have coffee or something to eat. It is like winning a price if you have two chairs and a table. Parking our car was at least two kilometres away
and were lucky to find one. But it is not all bad, for it is Holiday time, the sun was shining and it is oh so entertaining. Such things we do not have in Aussie land. So nice to walk and look at the houses from between 14 and 17 hundred. All beautified with geraniums and other flowers covering the window sils. The small cobblestone streets without footpath, where you have to watch out for cars that drive there, ladies on high heels, having no problems walking there. In one word, it is old, it is Europe. We like to thank all the friends for the good wishes for my Birthday. Our phone is not working, we can receive calls but cannot ring out. Tomorrow we move on again, where? We will tell you that next time. Bye for now Liz & Allan.
