You might ask why it took so long for me to wrap up this part of my blog. Well, my mom planned a nice big vacation in Zeeland in Holland on the North Sea for us. So, I took a break from the blog to have another adventure. Plus it is hard for a puppy to sit still in front of the computer for too long… I gotta have some excitement!
We walked around the narrow streets of Cochem for a little while and finally decided to sit down at a cafe. I of course got my own chair! I am a big puppy now, and I have needs! It was very relaxing, but very busy.
After relaxing for a little while we decided to take the bus up to Reichsburg Castle. The bus was a big… and drove up the narrow streets to the top of the mountain! My father said that the bus driver would have no problems driving in NYC…. dodging tourists and making it through tiny spaces… he could do it with ease.
Once we got to the top of the mountain and to the castle we could look down over the city and see the Mosel. It was such a beautiful sight. The castle on the outside is amazing as well. With a big mosaic on the side, it truly is stunning!
We unfortunately did not have time to go in because our parking meter would run out if we did the 45 minute tour. But I believe the tour is dog friendly, so one might be able to take the tour with their dog. You should double check online before trying. But just experiencing a place with so much history is breath taking!
We decided to walk down the mountain, which was nice. I like getting a little exercise! Plus, it is always fun to take different route… you never know what you may find when going a different direction!
By the time I got back to the car I was tired and ready for a nap. It was also getting a little later in the day, so it was time to go home. There is still more to see along the Mosel, but that will have to be another trip.
So to wrap things up… I traveled to wine country in Germany, won a 1st place prize, met some nice people (and other dogs), spent time with family in Trier, and saw some amazing sights! A really exciting weekend.
