We had a long travel day yesterday. Two trains to Koblenz, cabs to the waterfront, and then a 4.5 hour boat ride up the Rhein to Bacharach. And when you go up the Rhein you are traveling south as it is one of the only rivers in the Northern Hemisphere that flows north. We had a wonderful dinner at our hotel and this morning we are getting ready for our Rudesheim - Assmannshausen hike. A few of us got an early start... 6am! Team Morning Hike! We were rewarded with a fabulous breakfast at the hotel.
