Great Cities in Germany

I love Germany and have been there many times, Dusseldorf-Giddydorf not so (the Travel Professor is German and the Teacher’s Pet is of Irish descent so I have trouble keeping all the Citydorfs separate) but can’t wait to visit next October when we join the Taster’s Guild on the River Boat trip through the German countryside and wine region. The Tasters Guild is an international Wine tasting and Judging group and this will be mine and the Travel Professors third trip with them.

I can’t wait to do the Germany Wine region at the harvest as the wine experts (of one I am not) refer to it. They are a fun group and have taught me loads of info on wines, growing regions, the weather conditions, and of course the tastings of wine without being stuffy or snobbish. We enjoyed the first trip so much that we came home and formed a small group- 12 of us into an informal wine group- and surprise, surprise they all love to travel and I hope to get them blogging here soon. My friend Heidi visits Germany yearly as she has a sister there and she was the first friend (before my travels with the Professor) that I visited Germany with. I do have to admit that we were the tourists that did Oktoberfest in Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide) (and lost my wallet and passport in the Black Forest- another story another time) and needless to say had a great time in the beer tents. Neither of us could speak a word of German but sang along anyway.
