Life in the Rheingau

I come from a small city in the South of India called Kottayam. It is quite different than Oestrich-Winkel. Kottayam is famous for its back waters and rubber tree plantations. Kottayam is centrally located in Kerala state, which is known for its natural beauty and tourism. It is often mentioned as the ‘God’s own Country’. If you haven’t been to the places there, make it a point to visit at least once.

The first difference between Oestrich-Winkel and Kottayam is the wine and the vineyards. We don’t have vineyards in South India. Another difference is the public transportation. We have plenty of public transportation in Kottayam but in Oestrich-Winkel, it is not the case. It is really difficult to live in Oestrich-Winkel if you don’t have a car or at least a bike. Size wise, Kottayam is still bigger and has more shops and businesses around than Oestrich-Winkel, though the larger cities of Wiesbaden and Mainz, not to forget Frankfurt are nearby and have lots of shops, entertainment, and businesses.

The best thing about living in the Rheingau region is the atmosphere it offers. It is a calm and quiet place, an ideal place to study. Another thing I love about the Rheingau is its proximity to the river Rhine. The river is just a two minute walk from where I stay. There are walking and jogging trails as well as benches right next to the river banks. My most favourite thing about being in the area is being surrounded by vineyards. Where else can I enjoy a nice sip of Rheingau Riesling?
