Oakleys’s Travel Diary

Friday, 14 Jul 2017

Location: Miltenburg , Germany

MapLate nights and early mornings don't give a lot of time to write diaries. My book remains unopened!
Yesterday was a visit to Miltenburg a small village with half timbered houses the lower halves were made of stone which acts as a barrier to the floods. Our Bavarian guide gave a thorough history lesson which included a stop at a fountain where many so called witches were put to death.
During the guided tour we had tastings of meats, hazel nut cakes, pretzels and a miniature bottle of Schnapps.
On this stretch of the Main River there are thirty four locks and many low bridges which means the sun deck has been close for safety reasons.
