    September 29 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Had a beautiful morning's cruise before a quick stop at Melk and a tour of Melk Abbey...a Benedictine Monestary perched on a mountain behind the town of Melk.

    After a 2 hour tour through the Abbey, we were back on board and spent the afternoon on the top deck basking in the the sunshine and watching the beaut little Austrian villages passing by.Read more

    September 30 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Arrived on the Austrian/German border at Passau. Did a walking tour of the city followed by a pipe organ concert at Passau Cathedral...the largest cathedral organ in the world.

    Luckily our ship was able to ride a "wave" on to our next destination whilst we were in Passau, and we caught a bus from Passau to our waiting ship. The water levels are extremely low, so luckily it looks as though we won't have to change ships.Read more

    May 5 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    A lovely respite with Zuzana, Philipp and Boubou. Their home is fabulous, and Ian was suitably impressed by the high tech features. Including the “garden house” - a luxurious shelter for his bike. A trip to the beer festival, scenic views of Passau, “the town of three rivers” (interesting to see the confluence and mix of water colour), St Stephens Cathedral (“the Dome”), and a simply delicious lunch.Read more

    Bike tour along the River Inn

    August 21 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    After a wonderful morning walking tour through Passau, great lunch on the terrace we are off again on our next bike adventures: Germany to Austria ( & back). Beautiful ride along the River Inn, through the forest and over the bridge to Austria. A few challenging times but e-bikes gives you that extra boost to make it easier. Funny feeling to be biking and see your ship cruising without you! Dropped the bikes off and bussed to our next port. 2 days, back to back bike excursions were challenging but an excellent way to see so much.
    Dinner was perfect then evening drinks and off to bed, want to be well rested for Thursday: morning tour and afternoon microbreweries!!!🍺🍻🍺🍻🍺 Cheers!

    September 10 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 46 °F

    I'm back in Germany. I stopped for coffee and apple strudel (you have to, right?) and was delighted to find that Passau, Germany, is the homeland of the dachshund.

    TIL that even though dachshund is a very German word (the "chsh" kinda gives it away), they're actually called Dackels here.

    Tag 19 // Fähre fahren

    September 21 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Heute Morgen war es dann doch soweit. Der Weg endete wieder abrupt und konnte nur durch eine Fahrt mit der "Längsfähre" fortgesetzt werden. Für den stolzen Preis von 5,50€ pro Person wurden wir abgeholt und 2-3km Fluss aufwärts gefahren.
    Kurz darauf haben wir die deutsche Grenze passiert und erreichten wenig später Passau. Beim Anblick der vielen Flusskreuzfahrtschiffe und der dazugehörigen Touristen schätze ich es einmal mehr mit dem Rad unterwegs zu sein und nicht Teil der Herde zu sein. Da auf uns kein Mittagsbuffet wartet heisst es einkaufen gehen bevor wir gleich an der Donau Mittagspause machen. Ohne Vollpension, dafür aber im Grünen und vorallem in Ruhe.Read more

    Passau Bierfest

    May 5 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Quick tour of Passau and St Stephens (The Dome) with the 3rd biggest organ in the world. Makes me feel insignificant. Then a meal, send off for Phillip family afternoon tea then packing.

    July 24 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Etape de 60 kms sous le soleil (34*). On rencontre à nouveau nos compagnons de voyage. C est sympa et la route passe plus vite en discutant.
    Nous voilà à Passau, une jolie ville à la frontière Autrichienne sur le Danube.On est étonné de trouver ici aussi des magasins de vêtements traditionnels .
    Ce soir nous dormons dans un super petit hôtel où a dormi Sissi. Ils n'ont pas voulu me donner sa chambre😩.C est un véritable petit palais où même les vélos ont un emplacement de choix.
