I had an overnight stop in Cochem last week, lovely town built around the river.

Also found an Irish bar. :sick: :laugh:

Where are the photos of the painted lady? No photos, or it didn't happen!

I spent 2 days whizzing through Germany in April, spent a day on the Romantic Road, some stunning sights, cracking food and great roads. Definitely going to go back.

Thanks for the write up and the photos - all good stuff.

Everyone knows that Germany is a horrible country to visit, full of dull, arrogant people, with crap beer, wine, food and zero culture. They hate the British and bikers in particular :whistle: .

So sod off and leave it to us poor unfortunates who have to live there! (thumbs)

Here's the only pic I took with the painted lady in it! LHS, light brown t shirt, I was afraid to take her picture in case she battered me! She looked well hard! LOL!
