You're welcome, Travelforbeer. It was my pleasure to write the trip report, both to share with the readers who come to Fodors and for my own personal memories. It's always fun to go back and read the reports after a couple of years. There is usually something written in them that we forgot about.

Hope you have a great time on your upcoming journey to Germany.

Robyn

Robyn the overflowing flower boxes are about half the shots I take on vacation, just love those. We reference our trip reports all the time, they are the best time capsules! Your report finally kicked me in the butt to finish up our Rome report and so I can now, utterly guilt free, delve in to Germany!!! Yea, in 69 days I'll be trading in the reds for the whites The full side of dealing with an aging parent is you are totally reminded that you need to put those legs to good use while you still have them. Castles on high, here we come!

Having never been to Germany, I’m looking forward to ‘traveling’ with you, artstuff. Know what you mean about adrenaline keeping one awake and how wonderful to have a friend to drive you to the airport.

How do you pronounce Mainz, please? Too bad about the pillows. Thanks for a wonderful memory of my friend who thought ‘herren’ had to be women as the word began with ‘her’!

Stopping at Day 5 and will return for more soon. Thanks, artstuff!

Thank you, TDudette, for reading my trip report. I do hope someday that you get to Germany. It is a wonderful country to tour through.

I believe Mainz is pronounced Mine.z The "ai" is pronounced with a long "I" sound. I'm not sure if I'm right, but that's how I said it. If I'm wrong, perhaps someone can correct me.

Have a great day!

Robyn

spot on, robyn, with the pronunciation.

I as in mine, thine, wine, etc.,

The Z is said as in a ts sound, almost like the end sound in "finds" but with a T not a D.

Nice report, BTW, which I missed first time round. I could have done with your info on Bamberg on our trip to Germany this year because I rather feel that we didn't really maximise our time there - but when I did a search it didn't come up. Strange.
