Day number 19 proved to be pretty bloody cruisey. Went to Mainz and sat by the Rhine River for much of the day at a pop-up summer time beach bar with Kathi, Andrew, Anne, Pete plus special guests.
Migrated to a local restaurant for dinner, where a single small schnitzel would have been sufficient for the entire table. Subsequently felt unwell.
Day number 20 started in Hofheim, before a train ride into Frankfurt for a dose of shopping, and more sitting at a beach bar, this one on the Main River.
Fast forward to the 21st day, and the collective asses were put back into gear.
Went for a cruise from Frankfurt-Höchst to Rüdesheim and back to Mainz.
Through a couple of locks on the Main River, the scenery really picked up once we cleared the industrial areas and made it to the Rhine River.
First was Mainz, then Wiesbaden, Eltville (where the wine street party was on Saturday night), Oestrich-Winkel, and our destination.
Some pretty awesome scenery throughout, especially in Rüdesheim, with its vineyards clinging onto the steep hills.
Caught a chairlift to the top of the hill where there are several monuments. Very nice.
Finished the day with a shop around Mainz.
