Danube Adventure – Retrospective

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. Five star livingA 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.Bratislava castleor Melk Abbey. Melk Abbey

The width of the river Danube. Even when we were furthest from the sea in Linz.The Danube at LinzAnd the size of the buildings in the cities. BuildingsAnd how ornamented they were.
