We spent an afternoon doing a walking tour and generally exploring this wonderful town. Our group stopped for drinks at a little cafe and enjoyed some of the local tasty treats!
This will be the last of my postcards from our river cruise on the Danube. Anyone interested in more photos can check out my Adobe Portfolio site, where I have posted a bunch of photos in several galleries.
We had numerous views of the old city of Vienna, but when we were docked along the Danube we had a really nice view of the new part of town. In the afternoon the golden light really lit up the buildings. Despite the construction cranes it was still a lovely sight.
Weisenkirchen means “White Church” in the Austrian language, which is how this town got its name. Walking back from a tasting of lovely Gruner Veltliner wine one evening, I caught this view of the white church.
The journey continues with a photograph from Linz, Austria. We stayed in Linz until late in the evening, and I was able to capture this scene just after dinner. The building on the left is the Lentos Fine Art Museum, and on the right (blue in this photo – it changes) is the Ars Electronica Center, a museum of technology.
I’ve got a few more postcards to share while I catch up on my processing, so stay tuned!
One of the notable features of Passau is the many narrow alleyways, with cobblestones painted to direct visitors to artists’ studios. Many of the shops were closed at the time of our visit due to the artists being on holiday, but the alleys themselves were interesting to explore.
I was looking through my news feed earlier and saw a headline titled “New fast-casual turkey leg restaurant called Jive Turkey Hut opening in north Charlotte.” Out loud I asked “why does Charlotte (or anyone) need a restaurant that serves turkey legs? To which Kathy answered “because there are more of them than there are of you.” 😉
According to the article, they are known for their “stuffed, smothered and sauced turkey legs including a shrimp alfredo turkey leg and a crawfish macaroni and cheese turkey leg.” A location in Houston typically has lines wrapped around the building.
I realize I live a sheltered life and that we don’t frequent many restaurants, but I can’t imagine.
