The Castle has an amazing balcony that overlooks the town and Philosopher's walk, a prestigious area of this college town. Steffi Graff owns a home here. You can spot some of the homes across the Neckar River, hillside.

John was having such a fun time. I haven't seen him relaxed like this in many years. It was a true vacation for both of us. We only had two other riders with us on this trip.

I could write endlessly about all the fun places we visited and history lessons we learned on this trip. But what really made our trip enjoyable is spending quality time with each other and meeting some really nice people. Many couples were our age and were celebrating either birthdays, retirement, or like us Anniversaries.
The night of our true anniversary date we made reservations at the Chef's table. We shared this special evening with 3 other couples. One from Oklahoma, Karla and David, and a couple from Washington D.C., Tracy and Susan. The dinner usually takes about 2 hours max. We were laughing so hard and enjoying ourselves that we spent 3.5 hours dining. Those poor waiters!
My only regret is that we didn't take a picture of our table. These folks made our anniversary oh so very special!!
