In case you're interested, here's what I had for my #lunch at St Goar whilst looking out onto the #Rhine, it's called a #flammkuchen, and is a local specialty. It's a bit like a #pizza but on a very flat #bread. It was #delicious! #yummy #stgoar #rhineland #Food #foodporn #travel #tourism #tourist #Deutschland #Germany

I sat and ate lunch looking out on this #spectacular #view of the #River #Rhine at St Goar today. This is where the origins of #romance began, as poets and writers flocked here in the 18th Century to be inspired by the #landscape. The area was once ruled by the #Romans who left lots of ruins that visitors to the area came to see, hence the genre of #Romantik (with a k) writing was spawned. So that's Julius Caeser to Chick Flicks in one #photo! The area is now a World Heritage Site. #Deutschland #Germany #travel #tourism #tourist #rhineland #history #education #entsleeds #barge #beautiful #UNESCO
