Saturday, 12 August, 2017 – weather: Grey and Rainy, but improves
We have signed up to go to a castle tour and wine tasting today in Wrzburg. The weather is again dismal and it is tempting not to go, but I do it any way. So after brekkie I hop onto the bus. Julie walks into town.
I hope you noticed the weather conditions by the state of the umbrellas with the group. We are not allowed to carry water bottles, hand bags, umbrellas etc. which we put into a large locker before starting the tour. Additionally, we are not allowed to take any photos so there aren’t any. To summarise it is a huge place with the usual excess in terms of fittings, tapestries, etc.
When that tour is over and obligatory stop in the souvenir shop, we go to another part of the “residence” and down into a wine cellar for a wine tasting.
The third wine was a Riesling and was advertised as semi-dry which I was assuming to mean sweet.
One point about the bottle shape is that it is “reserved” for use in this area of Germany, only, except Mateusz Rose.
I return to the boat on the bus and relaxed. In the mean time, Julie is prancing into town. Some of her photos.
Julie returns and it is time for lunch.
It is a quiet afternoon after that. Slowly the weather improves a little bit but you would hardly call it great. Any way, by special invitation we are dining in Portabello tonight. It is an Italian restaurant in the river café area.
All in all, Italian is not my favourite cuisine and this meal largely represented what I don’t like about it. Plus I had to dress up Plus they were serving Duck, one of our favourites, in the main dining room although we are able to do something about that.
There is music in the lounge and some raucous dancing, I go to bed when they start playing rap crap.
