Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children.

Rhine Valley, Germany: A romantic cruise along a world heritage site

 

Overview:  They say its the journey that matters not the destination. It turned out to be very true when we took a river cruise on the River Rhine from Sankt Goar to Boppard in Germany. Before starting our cruise we took a walk around the pretty town on Sankt Goar and saw the 'World's largest free hanging cuckoo-clock'. Sankt Goar falls in the centre of Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We started our cruise from the shores of Sankt Goar and were immediately greeted by castles on either sides of the river. On the way our cruise passed through the Loreley rock and a maid depicted by a statue. It is believed that because of the curse of Lady Lorelei many boats have sunk in the river.
As we continued our cruise, we saw several castles built during medieval times. We also saw several beautiful towns, railway lines, cliffs and flowers on the way to Boppard. As the gentle river breeze refreshed us we reached the small town of Boppard where we did a bit of Wine tasting fresh from the vineyards.

How to reach: Sankt Goar is well connected by road from Bonn and Cologne. There is a rail station as well on the Frankfurt-Cologne line.
Food/Accommodation: European food is served across Germany. It may be a bit difficult to find vegetarian food but lot of fresh fruits are available everywhere.
