11th July Prague to Stuttgart, Germany.
Fine and sunny all day. When we arrived in Stuttgart we visited the Mercedes Car Museum which was a fantastic building. You got in a pod-lift and ascended to the top of the building, and then walked your way down 7 floors of exhibits. All Mercedes from early 1900 to the present day. Including race cars etc etc. Quite an amazing aray of vehicles. Then we went to the Porsch Museum at the other side of the city. Much the same thing but more modern cars. Another fabulous building of modern architecture. Mike really enjoyed both these excursions.
12th July Stuttgart to Boppard.
A shorter drive today but first stopping at Sinshein to visit the Motor Museum. Well this place was really worth a look. All sorts of cars, and aeroplanes. War vehicles, trains, bikes, prams and dolls, pedal cars, dodgems, road scooters, just about anything ever made. We all thoroughly enjoyed that stop. Arrived in Boppard, 4pm. It is on the banks of the Rhine and is a lovely quaint old village with lots of cruise boats moored along the banks. Nice to be in early and to be able to explore the streets. We have just had a fun evening with Steve & Tony, and for ‘afters’ went for a ride on the Rhine Ferry from our bank to the other side of the river and back again.

It sounds like you have had great few days. Crikey guys - only a few more sleeps and you will be across the ditch in England. It has gone fast!! Not long now Adie till you see the kids - you must be excited :)
All is well - the kids go back to school on Monday so can get the house back in order. We have a Japanese student/rugby player staying next weekend so lots to do.. Matt plays a touring school from Japan next Monday, Hillcrest Hamilton Wednesday and Botany College Saturday so a big week of rugby (and catering) coming up. I hope his body will hold up.. Additional to that, Court has her 3 netball games. Enjoy the last few days and keep blogging
Love Nikki
