Ilona and I wanted to take some short holidays in Germany and as I hadn't been in the little town where my parents lived after my father's retirement since nearly 20 years we decided to go there. It is a beautiful old Spa town situated between Bonn and Coblenz.
I had booked a room in a Bed & Breakfast which is in old mansion close to the Rhine.
The kitchen was very cozy and there was a nice garden behind the house.
Our room too was very welcoming.
We saw little squirrels eating from the bowl which the owner had put there and protected with an umbrella.
We took our first drink at the Rhine and watched the enormous transport ships. There were so many ships it was almost like a highway.
Bad Breisig (the little town) has mostly half timbered houses which look very beautiful.
There is also a nice little church
Unfortunately in the evening a heavy rain started which lasted during the whole night and unfortunately the whole next day.
The Bed & Breakfast Lady brought us two cups of coffee, when she saw on the balcony in our Bathrobes. What a nice service. ! Then we had a very nice breakfast in the pink breakfast room. There also was a Chinese couple and we chatted a bit together.
After breakfast we did some shopping and hoped the rain would stop.
But it didn't. We had to stay in the car and drove along the Rhine.
After supper we returned to our room. I just had time to download the few pictures when my little travel laptop decided to give up its soul.
I had to finish my post on my Kindle which is not so easy.
Anyway tomorrow we return home.
