This morning we woke up in Trier, Germany’s oldest city. The air was damp and cool, the surrounding vineyards covered in a misty fog, and the town was quiet except for the occasional church bells and a lone clarinet player in the town square playing a tune that echoed off the ancient walls and made it feel even more like we were stepping into history.
In the afternoon, we cruised down the river, enjoying hot beverages and amazing views of the Mosel Valley until we arrived in Bernkastel for an evening stroll, an impromptu introduction to three of the 1000+ sausages Germany is known for, and a mighty fun hunt for Riesling.
Here are the photos from our day!
One the top, the word tea spelled in the Viking Language. Loving the unlimited hot beverages on board. Makes it feel like home. "If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, tea will cool you; if you are depressed, tea will cheer you; if you are excited, tea will calm you." –William Ewart Gladstone
