Bamberg – Worthy Hills to Climb

Posted by Pat on September 14, 2021 in Travel |

14 September 2021 I suppose I could say all rail lines lead to Bamberg because my train is transiting southeast to reach the city of Bamberg, some 45 miles north of Nuremberg.

Posted by Pat on September 8, 2021 in Travel |

8 September 2021 I have to admit travel planning is NOT what it used to be. And being a solo traveler, I might be getting too old for this worry. I am used to 50 years of getting on a plane and going wherever and whenever I wanted. I always knew my independent trips were […]
