After a quick walk to the train station, we hopped on the first train to Cochem. Once on, we showed our 7-day rail pass to the conductor, who stamped it with a start date. He was supposed to check our passports as well but I guess we looked sufficiently foreign so he skipped that step.
After a day in the rain, we picked up wine and headed home.
We picked up wonderful fresh German bread and had a supper of Rhein spätlese wine and bread.
