When my father retired he choose to go back to Germany to the region of Bonn which had been the capital of Germany until the wall fell.
He choose the part between Cologne and Coblence and they moved into the little town, rather a village called Bad Breisig, which was a thermal city.
This part of the Rhine is very beautiful and also the cities and villages along the Rhine
My parents died in the 1990th and I had sold their house. It had been a long time that I haven't been back there, because I strictly know anybody there. They were all friends of my parents and had also passed away or had moved. I took a friend with me to show here the region where I have lived most of the time I spent in Germany and that was Bonn, which was only about 20 km from Bad Breisig.
Below you see the part of the Rhine
We stayed there for three days, unfortunately we weren't lucky with the weather it rained each day ! Or in the morning or in the evening and for a month of July it was rather cold.
I start to feel like an old grandma who lives in her memories and looks in old photo albums to remember how nice it was when you could take your car, bus or train or whatever and go wherever you wanted to.
