We had a great day today. We met up with Maike and her family in Koblenz. This was very kind of them, as it was theoretically only an hour away for us, but 3 hours for them. We had a lovely day, with a cable car ride, visiting the enormous fortress on the opposite side of the Rhine, and lunch out in a restaurant. Koblenz is a pretty town, positioned on a bend where the Mosel river joins the Rhine. Maike’s family are extremely easy going and friendly people. It was wonderful to see them again. I do wish that we didn’t live so far away! Hopefully, they will visit us again one day in Australia.
