Yesterday's city tour of Vienna didn't disappoint - very grand. We spent the afternoon on the sun deck in the shade asvery warm for a siesta and read. Today we are in Durnstein for a couple of hours then have a scenic cruise along the Wachau valley to Melk where we stop off for another ship's tour. Again good weather forecast. So far entertainment has consisted of live pianist some singing local folk dancing and excellent violinist. The food is very good lots of choice at breakfast. We tend to use MDR for breakfast and evening meal and Aquavit buffet for light lunch. I particularly like the set up of Aquavit buffet area where you can eat al fresco or in the conservatory area. Time to get the kindle out.

The sunIs still shining. Everywhere signs of spring are showing with trees in leaf, spring flowers and blossom in bloom. Yesterday we visited Melk Monastery. Today we have a day long trip to Salzburg
Last night was Austrian night with huge meal music and dancing. Tomorrow we reach Passau and fly home Saturday night.

Enjoy the rest of your cruise Shirley. I'm sure Saltzburg will be as stunning as I've been told it is. Have a nice day. :)

Salzburg waa very enjoyable. We did the guided walking tour with free time for lunch and shopping. We spent the day finding shade around 75 degrees. Today weare in a different country and different day altogether. We have arrived in Passau Bavaria area of Germany close to the Austrian border. We were going to join the walking tour of Passau but decided to dodge the showers and pack early. We have had a look around the shops and St Stephens Cathedral plus found ATM etc. This afternoon the ship put on a high tea that was very good so I am sat in my favourite area Aquavit buffet area with kindle while a storm unfolds outside. One more day then depart from home. We have enjoyed our trip oh and so has Bedford Bear.
