Trier is of course, the oldest city in Germany. It is a Roman city which dates back to the 2nd century and consequently has history abounding by the truckload. I found myself without a minute to spare and I still didn't have enough time to see all I wanted to see.
This is yet another very walkable city. I love this about Europe. So many of its cities and towns can be enjoyed on foot but with the option of good public transport when necessary. Trier is no exception. It is easy to walk around, but it also has a wonderful bus system which is quite easy to negotiate, if you're feeling weary.
I was trying on some clothes in the fitting room at C & A and when I had finished, I headed for the train station to take an afternoon trip to Saarburg. The train had just pulled out when I realised I had left my pouch containing my mobile phone and my house keys for home and one or two other small items in the fitting room. I jumped off at the next station and grabbed a taxi and went back to C & A only to find that the pouch was gone and had not been handed in. After putting the necessary stops on the phone, I continued on to Saarburg. Long story short, when I met up with my friend in Paris a few days later, he told me that my pouch had been found and was safe and sound. A very nice German lady had come into the fitting room after me and found it and showed it to her son in law who recognised it as belongng to an Australian. He then contacted his aunt who lives in Sydney, Australia and with info found on the phone she tracked down my son, Joel, who then contacted my friend, who was in Ireland at the time and when he met me in Paris, he was able to relay the good news. A few short weeks after my return to Oz, the parcel arrived with my phone pouch all intact. Hence I will always have fond feelings for Trier, not only because it is a wonderfully interesting city to visit, but because it is home to some very thoughtful and considerate people. I will always be grateful.
