Just across and a little south along the Rhine from Remagen a a short ferry ride gets us to Linz. This is the most charming old town, complete with a knight’s castle. My niece Nadine, her daughter Anni and I spent a couple of hours last Thursday exploring the narrow roads and ancient market places.
It was magical… Nadine revisited places of her childhood and Anni discovered places her mom loves. The Christmas Market was being set up and the little shops provided a hint of the upcoming season.
As we were waiting for the ferry for our ride back to Kripp/Remagen I discovered a Canadian flag foreshadowing my upcoming return home.
It is only fitting that as you read this last report from Germany I will be flying high above, heading home.
Thanks for traveling along with me during the past four weeks. It was an amazing time with family and an opportunity meet new friends and reconnect with one very “old” friend as well. I created wonderful new memories that will hopefully provide the strength to weather this long cold winter!
