That is one impressive rental fleet at Nichols! In three countries too. Maybe someday, but then I like to move over your way hopping train and bus without much advance plan.

Nice composition :-)

Aee... which boat is ours....?

Boat tours on that canal system? Surely a thought we may have in mind the very next years. It appears that it will be very much relaxing.

Give a shout if you ever come over, you will enjoy some rides with that VRN-Verkehrsverbund we have. Absolutely easy going from that station here to that place on top of Heidelberg ... ~55min in a combined ride of train, bus and cable car.

M. I'd prefer the "Petit Pierre" - a wonderful nice town just 15Km in the north of Saverne :)


Cinza on March 5, 2013

When I get too old to do the train and bus hopping maybe a boat and floating from town to town. Petite-Pierre seems a nice town but there is no water and I rarely go to places without at least a good river or big lake for long. A few days in a mountain town without some water views gives me a sort of claustrophobia.

That's OK ... as long one can walk one should do that. Petit Pierre is a pretty nice place we found in the 1980s. One week we did a tour in that much unknown part of our neighbour contry. That was first time contact with "Choucroute d'Alsace" that proofs the "real krauts" are that Alsace guys...

Btw: as a true sea man you will like those sights

Oh yes! I always "eat local" so I had to try even though this type of food has never been a favorite. In its home place, with a good Alsatian beer, it was great. You got me thinking of Strasbourg again with a photo from somewhere in that city. This was one of my few ventures deep inland from the coast, other than landing in transit on the way to the coast with maybe a quick run around a city, and with all that Rhine water around had enough water to relax.

Can understand that. Trying all that local things is often much exciting. That is even better in areas more far away than just that Alasce :)

Ok :)

Sicherheitsboote für Landratten, nehme ich mal an ;D nur ja nicht zu nah ans Wasser kommen, dear passengers, wir wollen keinen aus dem Kanal fischen... Da machen wir doch lieber das mit 'Nicols', wie Cinza vorschlägt ;)))

Cinza on March 15, 2013

Ah yes, peaceful floating is nice, but Cinza prefers more open waters and always enjoyed the feel of larger waters. Cannot get that anymore so has to make do with memories and a little hint on the Bay now and then. Ventures inland require faster moving, but some day, unable to train hop . . .

FN52447 on March 16, 2013

Yes, Cinza, I know, what you mean ;) We're going to Lake Constanz, but there, we sometimes had a feeling like open waters - stormy weather this time it was 12 beaufort! Too wet to go out ;)

FN52447 on March 16, 2013 you can see the small one...

®mene on March 16, 2013

a stormy "Bodensee" always is a nice thing. Though it is a small water in compare to the Atlantic or even the Pacific Ocean - here it may cause a lot of dangerous moments for the folks.

Those winds are reason i now will buy a heavier tripod i'll carry with me in May.
