The sky cleared and we had a glorious afternoon cruising through the famous Rhine Gorge. Sitting on the sun deck of our river cruiser, we watched the castles pass by and listened to the tales and legends of the region recounted by our cruise manager. Note: Some people have mentioned having trouble seeing the entire captions on some photos (I do go on a bit at times). All you have to do is double click the picture and it will enlarge with the whole caption showing. Good luck!... read more

The overnight temperature didn’t cool an awful lot from during the day and we slept with the bedroom window wide open to get whatever air movement there might have been. The balcony where we had breakfast faces east but with the overhang of the house there is enough shade to be able to sit out there and not be in the direct sun. With the prospect of an even warmer day than yesterday we plan to head off to explore the 80 odd kilometres of the Rhine River valley before it gets too hot to be outdoors and in the direct sun. We could tell the day was going to be hot by the sight of the bare chested neighbour from across the road at 8am in the morning as he came out to inspect the ... read more

Sehr schick - Schön fand ich auch die Innenstadt, die auf einen kleinen Berg steht. Ganz oben steht eine Burg, von der man einen wunderchönen Ausblick auf die Stadt und die anliegenden Weinberge hat. In Stadtnähe befinden sich mehrere kleine Schlösser - Echt schick. Gefällt mir ebenfalls sehr gut hier... read more

CAPTIVATING CASTLES The Middle Rhein River Valley is filled with a series of ruins, Burgs, Castles and Kirches that capture the imagination as you climb to see them closely, tour those that are open to the public or view from a distance. Castles or Burgs can be 1000 years old and have ties to the royal families and have been destroyed and restored by private or commercial entities or used by robber-barons such as Soonack Castle. They can have a history of serving as a hiding place for treasures during wars in the 15th and 16th centuries such as Ehrenfels Castle or sitting in the middle of the Rhein River as a customs tower such as The Mouse Tower with an interesting legend attached to it. The legend tells of tight-fisted Bishop Hatto II (968-970) of ... read more

Time is flying! As I sat down to write this blog I suddenly realized that we have ten days left of our European Adventure! I can hardly believe it. In the days since our last blog we've been from Austria, to the Czech Republic, and on to Germany where we finally settled down for a few nights. The city of Prague lived up to all of the wonderful things that people had told me before this incredible journey began. Compared to all of the "big" cities that we've been to so far, I think that this one was my favorite. It has just the right amount of "touristy" mixed with just plain culture. It just seemed like nobody was ever in a hurry, it was very clean, and it was very easy to navigate. The city ... read more

Geo: 49.969, 7.89567 GUN 8 GUNLERDEN CUMA Bu sabah ikinci şarap yolunu ziyaret etmek için çıktığımız Bingen'den sonra Ren kıyısında küçücük kasabaları gezerek Koblenz' e kadar vardık. Koblenz'ten haliyle otoban üzerinden dönmeğe karar verdik. Gördüğünüz yerleri bir daha görecek halimiz yok. Her zaman olduğu gibi küçük çapta bir Nermin (GPS) macerası yaşadık. Fakat artık Nermin uzmanı olduğumuz için anlayışla karşıladık ve Bingen'e otelimize döndük. Globus tan daha önce güzel çek biraları almıştık. Bunları açıp biraz keyf yaptık. Akşam doğru dürüst bir yer olarak Ayşe nin dünden gözüne kestirdiği bir lokantaya gidelim dedik .. Yerin adı her ne kadar Pizzacı olarak duruyorsa da aslında çok şık bir italyan lokanta... read more

Geo: 49.969, 7.89567 GUN 7 GUNLERDEN PERŞEMBE Oestrich denilen yeri Nermin'e bir türlü anlatamadık O'nun E ye yapıştığı harfleri bir türlü anlamıyor. Biz de ısrar etmeyelim ,durup dururken kötü olmayalım dedik ve yolumuza devam ederek kalacağımız şehir Bingen' e geldik. Farkında mısınız yaşamımız Nermin'e dert anlatmakla geçiyor. Otelimiz umutlarımızın üzerinde.... Ren nehri kıyısında 4 yıldız bir otel. Doğrusu bu kadarını beklemiyordum. Reception'daki kız nehir manzaralı oda istersek saat 15:00 te gelmemizi isteyerek bize bir "meydan turu" verdi. Çaresiz otelden ayrıldık. Zaten karnımız aç.Nermin ' e bir Mc Donalds yazdık 3.4 km uzakta bir tane varmış. Hemen yola çıktık . Ama bir baktık ki almış başını... read more

From Bavaria to Rhineland-Palatinate– February 24th to March 4th It’s always nice when the unexpected occurs, if it’s good of course, and I really did not expect to enjoy driving through parts of Germany as much as I have. From stunning natural sights like the Neckar Valley, to fantastic medieval towns such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber, it has been a pleasant and unexpected surprise. We started on February the 24th in the snowy town of Nesselwang, and have come north and then north west to end in Bingen, on the edge of the Rhine. The ice cold bottle of Becks is keeping me company as I struggle to see the computer screen, the sun is beating down and has been for about the last week. I had been told Germany was like Manchester, it could ... read more

Nuestro recorrido por el fascinante Rin Romántico terminó en la ciudad de Bingen. Esta ciudad debe su nombre a Hildegard von Bingen, considerada la primera bióloga alemana, la primera médica y la primera feminista de la Edad Media europea. La ciudad de Bingen no sólo le debe su nombre. Esta monja emancipada fue también una intelectual que logró conquistar grandes espacios durante su retiro en un convento. En el monte Rubert hizo construir hace 900 años un monasterio benedictino. Allí escribió sus obras más importantes y concibió una nueva imagen de la mujer. Describió a Dios con atributos femeninos, algo revolucionario para la época. Convirtió las debilidades atribuidas a las mujeres en autoridad y luchó por la equiparación de los sexos en cuanto al castigo por los pecados. No tuvo reparos en pelearse... read more

El tramo del río Rin que va desde Koblenz hasta Bingen, es conocido como el Rin Romántico. Fue declarado patrimonio de la humanidad en el 2002 por la UNESCO y debe su nombre a que es un tramo zigzagueante del río, rodeado de pequeñas aldeas, castillos, viñedos y colinas. Nuestra primer visita fue a unos 5 kilómetros de Koblenz, el Castillo Stolzenfels. Es un castillo del siglo 13, que fue reconstruido en 1842 por el príncipe Federico Guillermo IV. Se sube por un camino zigzagueante rodeado de árboles y arroyitos. A mitad de ese camino se encuentra la iglesia con un pequeño cementerio alrededor. Un poco mas arriba está la casa para los criados y al final, luego de unos 15 minutos de caminata, el castillo, desde donde se puede apreciar el río, e... read more
