We were up, ate our continental breakfast of rolls, coffee and juice quickly and climbed onto our tour bus to Boppard for our Rhine cruise departure at 9 AM. The cruise would take us to Sankt Goar, a trip of about 30 minutes by car. By boat, it would be a relaxing 90 minutes. This was an included tour and fortunately, the weather was stellar.
We settled in and drifted down the Rhine past towns and castles a-plenty. It was too early for a “wobbly-pop”, but we were happy for our orange drinks.
Disembarking at Sankt Goarhausen, we found Enzo and our coach waiting for us. We all loaded on the bus and were soon speeding??? on past Frankfurt, Wurzburg and onward to Nurnberg. It was a 4 hour drive, but with stops and slower driving, we made it in 6 hours. Yay, Enzo.
We ate lunch in a café along the way. I had Goulash Soup with a roll and beer. Pat had bratwurst, kartoffellpuffer, sauerkraut and strawberries and milk.
In Nurnberg, we opted to do the tour, before heading to the hotel (as a matter of fact, our tour guide did not offer any other option).
Touring done, it was time to head for to our hotel (Hotel Merkur) and hopefully dinner. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was Cabbage soup, fish, potatoes, fruit cup and beer. Is it just me or does it seem beer goes with everything in this country? Yeah, its just me!
