You have not been here and not do one of the boat trips on the Rhine. We decided to do both. One day on the boat and one day by car so we have the best of two worlds. The first trip by boat left at 9 o'clock but that was a bit to early, so we went on the second one that left at 11 o'clock and was more our style. According to the time table, we would be in Rudesheim at about three and leave again at six. Not so when we arrived in Rudesheim we had just 45 minutes to look around.

Dave's Updates : Howdy all. Made it to Germany safe and sound. Got to Frankford airport at 3:30 AM EST, 9:30 AM local time. Got the rental car (VW Polo) and set out to the Rhine River Valley. Stopped at some town I can't remember the name of and got to Boppard at about 4PM. We took a river road most of the way and it was a nice, slow scenic drive through a bunch of small tourist towns. Boppard : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boppard Boppard was great. We walked along the Rhine for an hour or so and then strolled around the town for another hour. We had dinner at a restaurant on the Rhine. The building was over a millennium old. Fish and potatoes for both of us and since we're in the middle of Riesling country, ... read more
