Rhine River View from the Train
December 14th, 2020
Toto, we’re not in the Grand Canyon anymore. After yesterday’s pictorial, we’ve flown east on the magic carpet to Germany, where we’re on the train following the Rhine River to our next destination.
When J and I were here in 2018, we chose this route on a whim. Originally headed to Heidelberg, we decided mid-ride to change direction and go towards Luxembourg — a place neither of us had been to. Although it was December and the hills were mostly brown, charming villages, castles and vineyards lined the Rhine and Moselle rivers the whole way. The views above and below are from a town called Sankt Goarshausen, where Maus Castle still sits high on a hill since the year 1356.
Tomorrow: Christmas spirit from Luxembourg.
