Mar 28, 2005 - Day 2, Bacharach, Germany

Hello or as they say in Germany Hallo! We woke up our first morning in St. Goar to another overcast day. We don#t mind the overcast because so far we have avoided the rain. We went across the river to St. Goarshausen to see the Loreley Maiden. We had to walk around all day with our packs, which was not fun (chad carried 3, meg had 1...hahaha). After that we waited to board a Rhine River cruise, which was supposed to return us back to St. Goar. However, when we ended in Boppard, we thought the town looked pretty cool, so we hoppped off and...

We are doing well and having a great time! Talk more...

We tried, but turned back when we didn´t know where we were going....wouldn´t want to spend the night down there! We stayed for two nights, then moved on to Rothenburg, but unfortunately due to a small...

Sep 27, 2004 - The Middle Ages at Marksburg

Monday the 27th the Auslandsamt invited us on an excursion to Marksburg, a fortified castle on the Rhine built during the Middle Ages. We had visited this same castle during our Maymester so I was familiar with the place. What I found espeically interesting was that the bathroom of the Marksburg was the weakest point of the whole castle and was most easily infiltrated by enemies and was thus always kept locked from the outside. The gloomy weather once again foiled most people's interest in the place. The fog that hung in the air however...
