Rhine River Cruise

ASSMANNSHOUSEN, GERMANY- Go ahead, take a minute the name is funny. We certainly giggled like little kids we we arrived in this town and read its name (which is written on the side of a mountain hehehe). Assmannshousen in a small town where we began our Rhine River cruise. This section of the Rhine River has been recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site because of the number castles that line each of of the river. The entire UENSCO route is 65km which we only did a fraction of on this trip. ( so expect another blog in the future).

The day started out in Frankfurt where we boarded a bus to head out to Assmannshousen (still funny). From here we took a cable car which gave us a wonderful view of the Rhine River and the vineyards below. We then boarded a boat and head down the river. The castles were everywhere and I kept thinking, if I owned a castle I don’t think I would want another one next to me. I mentioned this to my Germany tutor and she responded “typical American” which made me laugh. Anyway, we finished the day with a wine tasting and a drive back to Frankfurt.

Hope you enjoy the photos!

A few months back we watched a youtube video about the “Instagram husband” and have been making fun of it ever since. In this photo, Sean became an “Instagram husband” someone save him.
