Post from 2005 Burg Eltz, Moselle

No, this post wasn’t lost in the German mail system. As the original Blog was using an obscure blogging tool here is an old post from 2005:Just got back from a short trip down the Moselle in Germany. Beautiful scenery, food, drink and weather. The ghosts have stayed away but the Burg Eltz castle apparently has its own ghost (Agnes) who died defending her honour and the castle from an unsuitable suitor. This doesn’t really count though as she doesn’t leave the castle. The walk up there was a sensory feast through the forest from Mosellekern. The smells were particularly worthy of mention. The smell was of Fruits of the Forest.
