Snapshot Sunday: the Rhine and the Mosel

I promised you a rest from my eternal blogging from Germany. But this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is ‘Liquid’, and today, on our way home to England, we have journeyed a short way along the Rhine, watching barges and cruise ships ploughing their way from points between Basel in Switzerland, via the Lichtenstein, Austrian and French borders, through Germany and the Netherlands to the North Sea.

We looked for castles, craggy rock formations, vertiginous vineyards, and generally enjoyed the rich and varied life of this vast and lengthy waterway.

Tonight, our bedroom overlooks the hardly less interesting Mosel. I thought a couple of snapshots from each of these liquid thoroughfares was the least I could offer.

  1. I’ve been saving your posts from Germany so I could read them all together, and give them the attention they deserve. I confess that Germany is a country I have only ever passed through, and if I’m honest probably avoided in the past. I don’t really know why, possibly because I have no knowledge of the language. Your stories and images have made me a lot more interested, enough to check out journey times from here. Eight hours to Bamberg, the same as Nice. Mmmm worth thinking about. Thank you.

    1. Honestly, it was a great tourist destination. I speak little German (though Malcolm is fluent) but it was fine: many people speak English. There are tourists, but it’s not over-run, which is something I increasingly appreciate. Fascinating art, culture, lovely countryside. What’s not to like?
