So the day before we had had a soggy walk across London from St Pancras station to Liverpool Street.
Then the overnight ferry across the wet (obvs) North Sea,
Followed by a damp interlude between trains in Utrecht,
And a scenic but rain splattered view of the Rhine Gorge from the train window.
Let's hope the sun puts in an appearance when we reach our final destination at Michael and Renate's home in Bavaria later today...
