While in Germany, we rented a car from the airport and with a borrowed GPS, getting around the country was a breeze. Last Sunday, we decided to head to the little town of Cochem about an hour away.
It was a beautiful day and the landscape was quite varied as we drove along.
Cochem has been around since Celtic and Roman times though much of it has been rebuilt because of war.
Winegrowing and tourism are its economic lifeblood.
At this little shop, I bought wine jam.
And at this craft store, the prices were so much more reasonable than they are in Kuwait.
A few tote bags, three skeins of yarn, several cross-stitch books and a Christmas stitch kit with frames were all purchased for a fraction of what I would pay here.
I could have walked around this little town for hours, but unfortunately, teenage boys were not quite as impressed so we cut our visit short.
I do hope to visit again one day.
