What are the main thoughts that stay with me at the end of the cruise?
(None of the photographs here will be new. Just a recap.)
A sense of amazement at this * * * * * living. A wonder that most of the building s we saw, even if they had a history that went way back, had been rebuilt more recently, especially during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. Like here in Bratislava.or Melk Abbey.
The width of the river Danube. Even when we were furthest from the sea in Linz.And the size of the buildings in the cities. And how ornamented they were. especially some of the roofs. How Baroque the inside of most of the churches were.
And how beautiful the Budapest parliament building was especially at night. And climbing up the path to Durnstein castle The only really ‘old’ place we visited. And the beautiful Wacau Valley.This is now my final post on this cruise. I hope you enjoyed coming with me. Next summer, the only holiday I have planned will be in Dorset. Lots of walks and no cities!
