I’m currently training a new tour. (An established tour, but new to me.) This is one that Miloš has already been trained on and started working, and once I have it under my belt, we’ll get to work it together! Yay!
I’m training with some nice colleagues that I’ve worked with before, so that in itself makes for a very pleasant experience.
Today, we traveled along the Rhine River. (Germany)
We made a stop in Rüdesheim, then sailed through the castle-filled stretch of the river, and lastly made a short stop in Koblenz to see the Deutsches Eck. (Where the Mosel River meets the Rhine.)
In Rüdesheim, we toured the Musikkabinett (a huge collection of mechanical music machines,) had lunch at the Rüdesheimer Schloß, and then took a gondola ride up the hill to see the Niederwalddenkmal (which is a monument built in the late 1800’s to commemorate the unification of Germany.)
In the afternoon, the ship sailed through the Rhine Valley, rich with castles and quaint towns.
Then in the evening, we explored the Deutsches Eck (literally translated, means “German corner”) of Koblenz, and got back to our journey northward, with Cologne as our next stop.
Here are some photos from the day. (Three sections: Rüdesheim / Sailing / Koblenz)
Now on to the castles!
And then a visit to Koblenz
