  • Brief encounter in BonnAnother long over-due reunion awaited in Bonn. The weather was a bit underwhelming (the rest was not), so we decided to roam the fleamarket at the Rheinaue, where we encountered some resourceful salespersons.

  • MönchengladbachAdmittedly, Mönchengladbach is not renowned for its culture. But in the former weavers town you can find some interesting traces of its past ... [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/903593/ Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 18, 2017
  • PS: CologneOn my last morning in Cologne I went to the Käthe Kollwitz Museum and was encountered one of my earliest childhood memories, climbing the Käthe Kollwitz statue by Gustav Seitz on Kollwitz Platz - bizarre seeing all the earlier versions Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 18, 2017
  • Goodbye to CologneShort visit to the Kolumba museum with its wonderful chapel yesterday. That's it, thanks to the lovely Eva for a lovely long weekend. [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/903593/la Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 15, 2017
  • Cologne - First impressionsOK, today I actually got my second impression (previous Cologne trips not counting) because yesterday had I already explored the Botanical garden and discovered interesting architecture in the district of Nippes. Today it was all about explorations. Ex Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 13, 2017
  • Travelling along the Rhine riverVineyards, castles on hilltops and the beautiful Rhine river. One of the most beautiful train routes I know is between Bingen and Koblenz. [img=https://photos.trave Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 13, 2017
  • Relaxing in IngelheimI had a very relaxed time in Ingelheim with lots of reading, fun, games, chats and good food. Next stop: Cologne. Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 13, 2017
  • Ingelheim and beyondI found special red and green men in Mainz, at least as cool as the well-known Berlin 'Ampelmännchen', little celebrities from the city. [img=https://photos.travellerspoint.com/903593/90_P114 Posted by jumen in One year full circle | Aug 11, 2017
  • BerlinOn our way home (to Denmark) from France we took a short 3-day stop-over in Berlin. We negotiated our way by train to our first stop, the Brandenburg Gate, which was high on my to-do list. .It Posted by patsaunder in Let's do it! | Aug 10, 2017
  • "Blue Monday"Mondays make good days for travelling... Museums are usually closed and the weekenders have gone home. But a 6.30am start with a snuffly nose? Sleep would have been better if not for the 8.29am train to Berlin, a five hour ride. Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 16, 2013
  • "Blue Blood ll"How dare Barak Obama come to Berlin and disrupt our travel plans! He can talk to Angela Merkel ANY day but we are limited for time... Word on the street is that said streets would be crazy today with road closures Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 17, 2013
  • "Code Blue"How dare Barak Obama come to Berlin and STILL disrupt our travel plans! He can talk to Angela Merkel ANY time... Word on the streets is that said streets would be crazy today too, with continuing road closures and bus Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 18, 2013
  • A Blue Title Is Impossible...It's been another oppressive night in our room and l question the staff with a view to shifting rooms. Turns out there is no air conditioning anywhere in the hotel. In fact, few Berlin buildings have aircon, although I bet Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 19, 2013
  • "The Little Blue Man"The value of having wifi internet is demonstrated this morning when l open my email. I find one from DB Railways advising that our train to Frankfurt this morning has been rescheduled to leave half an hour earlier! Suddenly there are Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 20, 2013
  • "Blue River" IIOvernight, the flood waters have stretched out to the very edge of the wide promenade beside our mooring. People gingerly tip-toe along the garden bed wall. On the footpaths leading off from the promenade, there is evidence of debris that Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 3, 2013
  • "Blue Suede Shoes"Mirela and Adriana have worked tirelessly again to find and book the next activity to fill another day while marooned in Koblenz. With so many boats stranded, it's not so easy to instantly procure buses! Today is to be Heidelberg. Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 4, 2013
  • "Blue Sky" lllThere is a serious dearth of useful 'blue' song titles... I may have to diversify into other colours. And why not? This itinerary has also altered... The message has got through that yesterday's six hour round trip was too much for Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 5, 2013
  • "Blue Skies Bring Tears"At 9.00am, and with happy wishes all round for Jan's birthday, we leave Koblenz as promised! The large boat "Antoinette" shackled to us is unleashed and moves in to the centre of the Mosel. With boats fore and aft, Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 6, 2013
  • "Blue Red and Grey"It's another blue sky morning as we rise early for a quick breakfast before a 90 minutes bus trip to Nürnberg (Nuremberg) on the Pegnitz River in Bavaria. Nazi rallies dominated during WWII and the subsequent Nuremberg Trials relating to Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 7, 2013
  • "Blue Danube Waltz"We farewell a second crew this morning and head off towards Kelheim. It's another trip along the same freeway as that to Nürnberg and on. At least the air conditioning works today... At Kelheim, we board a smallish river boat for Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 8, 2013
  • "Black and Blue"We wake to find the industrial heartland of Germany outside our window. Power stations, heavy industry and container wharves glide by. High tensile power lines crisscross the countryside and smoke stacks are everywhere. It is not raining, but the day Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | May 31, 2013
  • "Blue Turns to Grey"This morning we find that we have docked in Koblenz as anticipated. Sleeping has been easy on this quiet and smooth boat. Outside our window there are Rhine River or idyllic town scenes, but the window of another cruise boat. Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 1, 2013
  • "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea"The remaining two steps of the staircase from the footpath down to the water are covered this morning - the water has risen over a foot overnight. The cruise staff scrambled desperately yesterday, a Sunday, trying to organise alternative sightseeing Posted by jbushie in The Rhine's Domain: Boats, Buses &Trains | Jun 2, 2013
