Saying goodbye to Germany

Last night I returned to my youth and enjoyed disco on the Rhine. I haven’t danced like that in ages. If you know me I’m a total introvert normally seeking solitary time to rejuvenate. But I also get energy and emotional recharging from music. If you see me on the dance floor you would guess I’m under the influence of alcohol, and yes sometimes you’d be right, but usually I’m just under the influence of music. I have music hangovers where I wake up the next day amazed and sometimes embarrassed about my dancing/singing antics!

So today is one of those day! But we were up and on the bus at Kehl by 8:45 on our way deeper into the Black Forest. We went to the Black Forest Open Air Museum at Gutach. It is so peaceful and picturesque there with thatch-roofed houses, stunning greenery and the occasional goose/horse.

Then it was back to the boat for the sad packing. We have to leave the ship at 9am, go by bus to Zurich (1.5 hr) where we will overnight and catch a dawn flight to return home. So trying to be a little strategic today and packing my clothes and toiletries for easy access tomorrow.

Then we had our last dinner with new friends Sandra and David. One of our best meals aboard.

If you squint really hard you can see about 10 swans here 🦢
