Ron flies east #2

More from our European rambler, who has reached Germany.  Day 2….

Rail trip to Cochem. Photos show inside and outside of station plus train at platform and Cochem’s road train

After time looking round town we were taken to a wine merchants for a wine tasting. We tasted five wines and then finished the bottles off.

Never mind the tasting – I always thought it a waste to spit good wine into a bucket.  Just pass me the bottle….

Day 3….

Rail trip to Koblenz so we could cruise down the Rhine to Boppard and then back by train. However we experienced German inefficiency as our boat was kaput upstream so we had to reverse our journey and we returned two hours later than expected. Photos show riverfronts at Koblenz and Boppard and a Rhine river barge.

Day 4….

Our free day so used my rail pass to do round trip to Cologne by train at half price. Few photos from station attached.
