Wilbur at the Moselle

Our frequency has somewhat slowed down, but Wilbur is out and about a lot. A few weeks ago he’s been on a trip along the Moselle river, the Mosel, and has sent lovely pictures that I’d like share.

First stop on the way – the Japanese Garden in Bonn. Once a present from Japan to Germany (in 1979). Pure tranquility…

A wonderful panoramic view of the Moselle at Starkenburg. This place actually has a name “Lorettablick” – Loretta View.

Sorry for the trees and bushes that partly obsure the view.

Moving along to Traben-Trabach – note the ruins of Grevenburg Castle in the background (halfway up the mountain) and the cruise ships.

And another lovely town in these parts: Bernkastel-Kues.

And of course one cannot visit the Moselle river without a proper wine tasting.

This is at Achim Reis in Briedel.

And this is at Weingut Hermannsberg, which is not at the Moselle but the Nahe river (but it was on the way home…).

Great trip!

I will see Wilbur on Monday. Yay!

Next week will be extra special as I will be travelling again too – and I will not only get to see Wilbur, but Ella as well.
