There has been a major heatwave in Germany this last week. It’s been hot, really hot. Even hotter than my last blog on matters hot. Over 40C a couple of days and even at night it stayed hot. I’d sneak down to the basement during the night when my Humans were asleep, way cooler down there and a big comfy sofa to lie on too. Sadly one night it was so hot I snuck down stairs only to find Grumpy-Human had stolen my spot, what rotten luck! Of course he is from New Zealand, not Australia so was feeling the heat like me. After a bit of a confrontation over who got the comfy sofa we agreed to share.
Now even my Aussie Humans were thinking this is a bloody hot week. What did they do? They decided to go on a castle adventure or two and drag me along as well.
First up apparently is some stuffy old pile of rocks in the woods some where a few hours from home in the Moselle Valley…
And what do you know, we head up the Rhein Valley first and pass castles on the way to a castle, go figure that.
Finally we reach our destination
Castle Eltz in the Moselle River valley between Koblenz and Trier. Its one of those fairy tale castles built in the 12th century and so loved by Disneyland. It took us just over an hour to get here from home and as it turns out the new Car has great air-conditioning which we don’t have at home, himmm… I’m beginning to understand my Humans thinking now.
Well there is the castle, can we go now, I’m bloody hot!
Second up, the next day we headed for Heidelberg Castle, about an hour south of our home.
Finally our last castle in the 3 day marathon on castles near us, Biebrich Castle on the Rhein River near Wiesbaden about 30 minutes from our home. Another day, another castle eh?
I’m well and truly castled out or should I say schlossed out? Not sure if the German language allows you to torture it like that but hey, I’m a dog, I can’t speak anyway.
