Day Two Hundred Eight, August 18, 2011
On the river Mosel in Germany are a series of tiny villages each more charming than the other. It is the stuff of fairy tales, castles, towers, forts, cathedrals, tiny cobble stone streets, vineyards, tiny doorways, ancient ruins, green, green, green and a feeling of being stuck in the past. It made me imagine what life would have been like years ago when these forts were inhabited, when the castles were inhabited by royalty and when life was much slower than it is today. The overwhelming beauty of this place still lingers and cannot not take your breath away!
