The Mighty Rhine – Aug 19th

Karen   /  

The sun was shining today as we left our campsite in the Black Forest and set out. Daniel had awoken saying that his wrist was much better, so we decided to wait another day and see how he recovered. We drove to a town called Worms. Martin Luther made a plea in Worms Cathedral for the reformation of the church, and Tim and I were interested to see it. We also had a wander around the town which is one of the oldest in Germany. After a short stop at a toy store so that the kids could stock up on some Playmobil (at much cheaper prices than in Australia), we drove to St. Goar. St. Goar is another old town on the banks of the Rhine. The section of the Rhine river from Sr. Goar to Bacharach is known for being spectacular due to the towering cliffs topped with castles and vineyards. Our campsite is amazing! The banks of the Rhine lap at our door, ferries and barges busily charge up and down the river, and castles look down from their perches. We were planning to do a cruise from here tomorrow, however Daniel is again complaining about his wrist so we will definitely need to get him looked at tomorrow. It is hard to know where to go in a foreign country, but I guess we will work it out.
