Up early and on the train to get the MacBook Pro fixed. Waiting at the station...all hell breaks loose, sirens and police running everywhere...guns drawn they nab a guy in the 3rd carriage and whisk him away.
I shouldn't laugh...but the lady standing next to me absolutely sprints onto the train when the police hall the man from the train - I should realise some people find things more stressful than others.
The trip to the Apple Service Providers gives me the opportunity to see a few old cranes from the past that have been renovated - their just outside the Apple offices so I take the time for a nosey and a few pictures. Lucky its only a few minutes with the laptop and all is good...glitch in the software. On the way back to pick up the bags and Lynn I notice a nice old stone part to one of the rail bridges across the Rhine. Back to our BnB in under 45mins and away we go.
We stopped in Dussoldorf to find cloths outlets but no good. Town was ok but back on the autobahn and driving to our next home in Utrecht (Netherlands).
We arrive about 4:00pm to another lovely house. 3 stories high and very small narrow staircases to the second and third floors. Lynn is standing at the top laughing as I take deep breaths when I get to the top floor carrying just my bag and knapsack. Lucky Desiree (host) carried Lynn's bag up, I thought I might have had some serious gasping going on for an hour or more as I gained my breath.
We finished our day with a walk through a lovely park to shops then home for a massage. How's that...our host is both a television director and a masseur. Nice treatment...then off for a good nynights.
