Sailing Through the Wachau Valley

The first half of the day, sailing through the Wachau Valley in Austria.

It was almost bitterly cold this morning, but I bundled up, grabbed the video camera, and headed to the top, open deck. Laura stayed below in the front lounge with the digital camera.

There really isn't a lot of diversity to report on during this part of the trip. Don't get me wrong, it's stunning. However, there's only so much one can say to describe it: town, castle, church, mountain, church, mountain, town, castle...

It is truly lovely, though, and I wish everyone could see it at least once.

Say Hello

Part of the fun of a river cruise is passing other travellers along the way. An enthusiastic shout, a friendly wave, and a quick appraisal of the other ship, just to make a mental note for the next cruise.
