The flight over was the smoothest I’ve ever flown, I’m sure Bea had everything to do with it. We had a great hot breakfast and landed on time. We breezed through the security check point and found the rental car counter. I picked up the car; they gave us an automatic VW and we met up with Bea and said our last good buys. Lori and I loaded the car she jumped in the navigator’s seat and I got into the pilot seat with all intensions to take us out of Frankfurt. We promptly got lost!
Once the navigator and pilot synchronize their frequencies the VW was heading toward Worms. We arrived at Worms quickly found a parking spot and took off to explore the city center.
Worms dates back to 400 AD, the city was has sections of the city wall still standing from that time. The city sits on the Rhine River and was bombed heavily during WWII. We visited St Peter Domo, beautiful; in addition we were able walk through the crypt, hmmm very quite.
Once we left Worms we headed toward the German Wine road “The Deutsch Wine Strada”. Lori took over driving and I navigated and
rested. We promptly got lost, again.
Lori threatened to call Kirsten, Wooooo; I am scared LOL…. Ok, I agree it was my fault that we were lost the second time.
I explained to Lori that getting lost always happens daily and by the last day we’ll be laughing about it. She bought it.
We found the Deutsch Wine Strada and began following along stopping and sampling the region wines. Lori loved everything from the small villages with half timber houses to all the vineyards going for miles upon miles. She also marveled about the age of all the villages. She said it reminds her of Helen Ga. But better, this is the real thing and lots more of it.
We found our first Gust house and the couple spoke no English and I’m soloing. Ein Zimmer Frei , Ya, how many Euro’s, our inn keeper Rudi , spoke to me as if kirsten was standing behind me. I turn expecting Kisty to be there and she’s wasn’t. Lori was instead looking at me with her brows up, her nostrils flared; I turn back to Rudi thinking I can do this, immediately I spotted on the wall his pricing for a
room. It was only 46 Euro and that included breakfast. I pointed and began Specking Da Deutsch and pointing to the line that said Ein Zimmer. He looked at me and said Ya, Ya and motioned Lori and I to come in. He then asked for breakfast do you want Coffee or tea, this was all in German of course, I was able to understand and answered Zry coffees, he stopped in his tracks turns looks me in the eye and said Gute!
Lori still thinks I walk on water.
