Riding on the Main Oct 12 & 13, 2022 After a great night and breakfast, we said our goodbyes, loaded the car and headed toward Miltenberg which is in the Main River. We took the scenic route to Miltenberg. We visited here before while on our Viking Cruise, and a Viking ship was docked in Miltenberg. We have decided to bike the Main River. This will make our third river in Germany that we’ve biked. We walked through Miltenberg enjoying the half-timber houses and looking for a place to have lunch. Most places were closed. It could have been because the tourist season was winding down or they just wanted a day off. We returned to platz where Kirsten remembers having her picture taken when she was a small girl. Also, this is the village Tante ... read more

We started out today with a tour of Miltenberg. It had classic German village architecture. Unlike many of the other ancient towns we've visited where high end chain stores have taken over, this place seemed to be popular with Germans, had local crafts and art and was a refreshing change. Later in the day, we visited a local farm. Totally fascinating. The owners (a very handsome couple in their late thirties) were a florist and a butcher who with absolutely no experience in running a cattle operation started their farm over a decade ago. The wife who gave the tour spoke very good English (with a hiccup occasionally) and was very informative and easy-going. Extremely likeable and smart. No traditional dress here: she was dressed like a fashionable business woman. They are a bottom to top ... read more

Day 10 &11 Tuesday & Wednesday August 2 & 3, 2016 Momma’s birthday I roll over and look out the window. It’s raining lightly; I close my eyes we are sleeping in today. The rest of the boat is taking a tour to Heidelberg. Kirsten has seen the city; me I’m a wanted man in Heidelberg. The last time I was there… Lori and I were trying to get out of a parking garage. I broke off the parking garage arm that keeps you in. Yea, I’m sure the Poliezi are still looking for me. Kirsten and I sleep in and meander to the breakfast buffet in the front of the boat. We sat there having a nice quite breakfast. Three of the wait staff were there and waited on us hand and foot. I couldn’t ... read more

After a peaceful "locked" morning, we docked in Miltenberg, Germany, our first stop in Bavaria. It's a quaint town (pop 9176) nestled in some beautiful mountains along the Main River. It looked like something from a German post card. Our walking tour guide was funny and filled with lots of historical facts. The town has been a tourist destination since 1590. One of the oldest working "Inns" in Germany is here. There's a wonderful brewery here and this is where the pretzel was created. The story about the pretzel is pretty cool. This is a strongly Catholic community with a monastery in the hills. The monks used to make heart shaped "pretzels" that reflected their love for God. But when they decided that you could pray with your arms crossed (to keep your hands warm in ... read more

...the last days in my hometown After the last weekend with my great friends in France, I went back to the cold "South" of Germany in order to prepare my journey and to say goodbye to my family and the friends I still have here. In the moment I'm in my hometown Miltenberg in Bavaria, Germany. It's a lovely, very little city along the river Main 70km South of Frankfurt. In the moment I spend my days here sorting my visa & stuff, packing my backpack and getting ready for leaving. Only a few things get on my nerves such as the bank who wasn't able to send me my creditcard which I demanded in December and the Iranian Visa agency who desperately wants a letter from my university that I study there....and another 20€ for ... read more
