  • RegensburgWe arrived into Regensburg in the morning and then boarded a bus for our “From Hops Field to Beer Stein Farm Visit”. It’s interesting that they always seem to tell you than it’s ‘only a 30-40 minute drive’ which nearly Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Jun 8, 2023
  • PassauInto Germany now and first stop is Passau. We have been here before so I decided to skip the tour of the town and took a hike up to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veste_Oberhaus|Veste Oberhaus]] a fortress that was founded in 1219 and, for Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Jun 7, 2023

  • RegensbergBefore I forget, the subtitle for today is based on the coat of arms for the city of Regensberg, which bears a pair of crossed keys (old-fashioned skeleton keys). This is because the key is the symbol of St. Posted by dasafish in Grand European Tour | May 31, 2023
  • Locky us! Or How to climb a mountain with a boat.This a “between the days” edition, talking about the river locks. I’ll post our morning visit to Regensberg later this evening. FYI - the pictures of going through the 82' lock are in the middle of this blog. The Posted by dasafish in Grand European Tour | May 31, 2023
  • NürnbergLast night we had a pretty evening with a quiet but colorful sunset. I didn't think to include them in yesterday's blog, so here are a couple of pictures I took after supper.

  • BambergBamberg is an old town that has on several occasions been used as the set for a movie set in the Middle Ages. It has many buildings from the 1200s along one of the rivers. They’ve been Posted by dasafish in Grand European Tour | May 29, 2023
  • WürzburgToday we visited the city of Würzburg. The name Würzburg means “spice castle.” I had been wondering the difference in a berg and a burg – a berg is a mountain, a burg is a castle. That’s Posted by dasafish in Grand European Tour | May 28, 2023
  • MiltenbergWe started this morning with a glass-blowing demonstration by a man whose family has been blowing glass for 5 generations. His business creates both art and laboratory glass; he likes the strength of the Pyrex laboratory glass, so he Posted by dasafish in Grand European Tour | May 27, 2023

  • Cologne (Köln)Today we toured the city of Cologne. It is either Germany’s 3rd or 4th largest city, depending on who gives the information. It is the biggest city in the Rhineland area of Germany and was heavily bombed in WWII. Posted by dasafish in Grand European Tour | May 25, 2023
  • 23 May 2023 - Salzburg via RosenheimMunich is somewhere I'd like to return to; the city has a lovely feel about it. I left in plenty of time to get to the train station, bought a couple of pastries along the way (tip: one is Posted by kiwionthemove in Europe 2023 | May 24, 2023
  • 22 May 2023 - Munich Day 2 - no photosToday was a very relaxing day, simply enjoying Munich.

Sometimes English, sometimes German, sometimes Posted by kiwionthemove in Europe 2023 | May 23, 2023
  • 21 May 2023 - Munich Day 1 - no photosIt's Tuesday 23 May as I write this; I'll be heading off to the train station soon. Munich is a lovely city. For some reason, the post-war buildings don't look as bad as they did in Stuttgart. I Posted by kiwionthemove in Europe 2023 | May 23, 2023
  • 20 May 2023 - Munich via UlmToday I said goodbye to Nicola and Heiko, who brought me to nearby Pforzheim. I couldn't purchase my ticket using the DB app 'Technical Error, try again later', so we needed to go to the ticket office. Travelling Posted by kiwionthemove in Europe 2023 | May 21, 2023
  • 19 May 2023 - Mercedes-Benz Museum in StuttgartI'm sorry to say it, but Stuttgart has very few redeeming features; it's not the prettiest of towns. That's a consequence of the war I believe - heavily bombed. At least I can say I've been there, but Posted by kiwionthemove in Europe 2023 | May 21, 2023
  • 18 May 2023 - Maulbronn Monastery (Kloster Maulbronn)It's mostly photos today.

  • 17 May 2023 - London/Königsbach-SteinI doubt you've heard of Königsbach-Stein. It's an amalgamation (60 years ago) of two villages some 60km NWW of Stuttgart. That was today's destination, where I'm going to be staying with friends Heiko and Nicola. I worked Posted by kiwionthemove in Europe 2023 | May 18, 2023
  • Parliamo italianoAfter a few days in Hamburg, we seem to be getting the hang of it. We’ve worked out the best bus routes, and we are slightly less likely to be run over by bikes than we were when we Posted by Buccas in The Reunion Tour 2023 | May 16, 2023
  • A hamburger in HamburgWaffles for breakfast! A solid start to proceedings, but disappointed that the soft serve icecream machine was out of action today. We explored the options on bus line 2 this morning, which took us all around the Altona district. Posted by Buccas in The Reunion Tour 2023 | May 16, 2023
  • FrühstückI half expected to see a national day of mourning declared after the abysmal result for Germany in Eurovision, but was relieved to see that the provision of breakfast at our hotel was not disrupted. What a breakfast it Posted by Buccas in The Reunion Tour 2023 | May 15, 2023

  • Let's do the time warp againBags = packed. Seasons 1-3 of The Orville = binged. Out-of-office email message = turned on. Time for a holiday! We had a smooth run to the airport, and then a smooth run through security (despite Simon looking like a highly suspicious character in Posted by Buccas in The Reunion Tour 2023 | May 14, 2023
