Summer is a great time to take a break from school and work to explore new areas. We did just that and had a great time. Driving over 3,500 kl (2,100 mi), we toured through The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy.
Our first stop was Cochem, Germany where the Mosell River runs through and the Reichsburg Cochem Castle stands and Cochemer Sesselbahn (or Chairlift) to take us to the top of the mountain to see the entire city. At the top was a cross that lit up the skies at night and a spectacular view.
