Ever heard of a little place called “Bacharach, Germany?”

So today we arrived in Bacharach, Germany and it has to be one of the greatest towns I’ve ever been in. It is on the Rhine, and the Rhine has some of the most beautiful buildings. There are castles, large homes, and small town homes.

I love the way that small German towns look. They are all together and have so much history within them. Today Professor Eckert told me an interesting fact about Germany, if you live in Germany then you will live within the town. There is no such thing as living out in the country, if you see a building out in the middle of farm area it is probably just a barn that the farmer stores stuff in and he will have an actual home in town. I personally live in the middle of farm land so I could never imagine not having people live there.

A little after we arrived a few friends and I decided to go walk around town and then we ran into our professor and he said that there was a place you could walk up to a castle. So we went up and there were a lot of stairs but it was beyond worth it. The views from the castle were phenomenal, there were views unlike anything I had ever seen. On the left we saw a castle and on the right was the Rhine river. When we got to the very top we were able to sit and enjoy the view and it was great. When we were walking down we decided to take another another route and it took us to the backyard of some small cute houses that had a stream running behind it. It was gorgeous. Today was a fun adventurous day.
