|View from the train window between Bonn and Koblenz|
Admittedly, on a brighter day last Thursday, doing this journey in reverse, the views had been more exciting, when we followed the Rhine all the way down its famous valley, through St. Goar, seeing Goarshausen and the Loreley on the far bank, and the vineyards. In last week's notes I have written: Drachenfels, arched bridge at Koblenz, castles on rocks at Rhens, Boppard. Mittelrhein has fast flowing weirs for barges to avoid.
Bingen, Mainz-- crossed river, flatter views ...
We changed trains at Frankfurt on the way down last week (photos below) and at Mannheim on the way back today.
