A Day in Mainz, Germany
Located along the Rhine River, Mainz is a lovely city. It may not be the biggest tourist destination here in Germany as it just might be one of one of Germany's best kept secrets. I would say not to overlook it when making plans to visit Germany. All the cuteness and charm without the summer crowds. Mainz is most famous for Gutenberg who as you might know invented the movable type revolutionizing printing thus bringing Europe out of the dark ages. He also impacted manufacturing because he implanted the seed or notion that you could get machines to do what people humans could do and this was huge. In Mainz, you will find a whole museum dedicated to him and the publishing. The most impressive being the 42 line bible. After checking out the museum walk around the old city, eat a traditional German meal or if you have been away from the states awhile and are dreaming of Mexican food try Taco Kidd which is what I did and boy it was so good to have a taco after two months of eating traditional food. Super Yummy! Another hidden gem are the stain glass windows created by Marc Chagall in St. Stephan's church. Well I better go I can barely keep my eyes open; however, this won't be the last post on Mainz because we will be going back sometime in the future to continue to explore the city. Oh and a little shout out to my better half who today I am celebrating my 20 year anniversary with you are the best decision I ever made. Thanks for choosing me!
