Autobahn Baby: Germany, fasten your seatbelts

We made our way to Germany driving on the Autobahn ... tip for those interested, don't rent a car with golf cart wheels. Anyway, driving (for the second time in 6 months) was insane, but the point of the trip was to check out the Rhine Valley region of Germany. Or maybe it was to bask in the 80 degree weather on a boat while admiring Princess Beauty castles, not sure. (We've been desperate for heat.) We also did a night stay in Cologne, which is the only German city that had to be 100% rebuilt after the bombings ... although the magnificent Gothic style cathedral still stands. We ate more sausage in 48 hours than we had all year round and found that my four years of German class in fact didn't come back. So check out the pics to view pretty stuff.

so glad for the updates! i've been waiting anxiously to read about your latest adventures!
when in germany, i also found that my "german" skills were severely lacking. fortunately almost everyone spoke english so i didn't have to humiliate myself asking where a bathroom was...

There's no couple that moves faster than G&S. Who else gets married 3 months after they get engaged? Sounds like the autobahn was the perfect place for you...I hope your car wasn't a Trabant! Ich lieben kieferbaumen!
