A GOB Stopper!

08:00 there was a knock at the door.

It was the last of the GOB (Get Onyer Bucketlist) – our final walk in Saxon Switzerland and Jenny and Marco’s son Willy had come to say good morning.

Then Younos came in with his younger brother. Younos is a lovely, clever little lad with black curls, bright eyes and a ready smile. He wanted to know about EVERYTHING.

A view across the rooftops of Bacharach; the mighty Rhine in the background.

A word of advice. If you don’t like castles, wine and half-timbered houses, do not come to the Rhineland!

It was another beautiful day; we waited until it was cooler to take the dogs out for a walk through Bacharach, which is a pretty cobbled town with lovely old, timber framed houses. We walked up a pathway to the vineyards and were treated to beautiful views across the rooftops over the town. Continue reading “Dog on the Rhine – A Quick Way to Get Schlossed!”
