Germany in 10 minutes

Well here I am – in Koblenz.

Germany is rather different than I expected. No one takes credit cards, things DON´T run on time (the train that Nick picked me up on changed designation and route midway to our hotel – twice!!) and internet is as rare as hens teeth. Having said that we´ve seen some magnificent castles and the country is very beautiful and I´ve taken many photos. My feet still hurt…

We have one more full day here and then we have to drop the rental car in Aachen early Saturday morning before getting the train to Amsterdam so we have only one full day – and maybe a bit to see both Cologne and Aachen. But we´ll manage.
