  This is the final post of the 2017 Anderson trip blog. We made these maps after we came home. I hope you have enjoyed our story. P.S the reason why map is first is because it is more accurate even though Caleb did his with Google maps. This is a family joke. Yours truly, […]

Hi all, As I’m sitting here trying to recount in a nicer way the great day we had yesterday, I happen to glance over at both my brothers’ works – about how terrible writing a blog is. So I will try and make this one seem enjoyable, and to be honest it was. But apparently […]

Dreaded Drudgery as I Dutifully do my dumb, disastrous, blog. Yesterday, I neglected to do my blog. Today, I am doing it in the car. So goodbye scenery and the point of being in the Mosel! I say goodbye to the beautiful countryside, and to anyone not paying attention, I could well be back in […]

The river boat passed through many beautiful vineyards, some of them situated on cliffs, terraced for easy access. What really capped the cruise off, though, was the passing of the “wine capital of the Mosel”, on a […]

Hi all. Today I have been offered a bribe to write a blog instead of being forced. The bribe was to watch a movie if I wrote my blog. I asked Mrs Mug about this and she agreed with me wholeheartily. After I told her about this, she texted back that her long lost cousin, […]

  Hi all, Today was a ‘day of relaxation’ as mum put it. Apparently relaxation involves taking a two hour round trip of the river Mosel plus an hour play on the playground (for Matthew not me) plus an hour and a half being dragged around the streets of a typical Moselian (is that the […]
