First stop this morning was Dusseldorf airport, to meet Edward who’s joining us for the rest of the trip. Our carefully made plans worked perfectly and as we parked the car and went into the terminal, we heard the announcement that his plane had landed and he was soon there with us. Good fun to have him along; lovely to have his company.
Driving through the German countryside was easy and we soon passed the former border between East and West, now marked by a single sign by the side of the road.
Arriving in Weimar late afternoon, we took a quick walk to orientate ourselves before finding a table at the Weisses Schwan, one of Goethe’s hangouts.
