I spent a day last week tagging along to some friend's errands in the Rheingau region (the wine region along the Rhine nearby). We've had really sunny beautiful weather here lately and after spending a day with a view of vineyards, the Rhine, and just a beautiful part of our region, I felt amazing. I think I may have been suffering from some winter blues, because the difference in my mood afterwards was notable. I hope to get out here as much as we can this summer. Luckily I don't think I'll have any issues dragging our company out for a cruise along the Rhine or a day drinking wine in the vineyards.
There are tons of castles along the Rhine and you can do a cruise to view them. I haven't done one yet, but was looking at this vendor. It's recommended on Trip Advisor and is the first to come up on Google searches.
Here's a map of all the castles, if you're interested. Its pretty cool. The area where I was, and where the boats we would take depart from, is in Rudesheim way at the very bottom-middle of the map.
After my day in the Rheingau, I was in such a good mood I decided to run some errands downtown in the pedestrian area. This was probably a little overzealous of me because once I parked and walked all the way to where I was going, I was overcome with tiredness. I wanted to sit down in the middle of the store. I rallied though, finished what I came to do, and went home. The German schools were closed for the day, so the streets were bustling. Besides the Christmas markets, I hadn't seen it that busy since last summer. It was nice to see the city alive again.
