    Germany / Regensburg

    August 11, 2017 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    11th August 2017.
    Arrived in Regensburg this afternoon. A real Bavarian town. Had a Bavarian lunch and staff got dressed in Bavarian costumes. Quite neat. Weather is cloudy and overcast with showers. Went for a little walk through the town. It is known as the ^ Medieval wounder of Germany^. This old town suffered hardly any damage in the second world War. It's now part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
    The last night on this boat. Transfer to our new boat tomorrow. Had a great night with a guy playing an electric violin. Graham was a dick and got up and danced the Irish jig. What a laugh. All these boring old farts. Had a few drinks. Last ones to go to usual.

    After our quick afternoon tour we went back to the boat for an early dinner as we were going to a classical concert at the City Palais Liechtenstein. What a beautiful palace. No wounder the poor people rebelled when they wasted so much money on such extravagant buildings. We got all dressed up and had drinks before the concert in this most beautiful room. Chandelier and gold on the walls. After drinks we listened to a great orchestra playing music by Strauss and Mozart. Very dynamic display by young musicians. Also the Vienna boys choir now allows girls to join this Academy and we had a group of young girls sing to us. Also had a young lady sing a aria and a spunky young guy sung a tenor. Awesome night. We are getting culturally sophisticated.Read more

    Sightseeing in the centre of the city or in the 1sr district. The first district is surrounded by wide boulevards on three sides called The Rings trashed. All the beautiful buildings are in this area and expensive shops.

    To day we went to Schonbrunn Palace. It is the most famous and beautiful palace in Vienna. This is the summer palace of the Habsburgs who ruled much of Europe for over 600 years. The most influential ruler to have lived here was the famous Maria Theresa. Amazing place but not as good as Versailles. Lovely carriages. Beautiful gardens and statues.Read more

    Royal carriages were coloured green. No one else could use this colour green. It was for royalty only. And the importance of the royalty was known by the colour of the wheels. Black wheels indicated passengers were not that high up the royal chain. Gold wheels meant the king or queen were in the carriage.Read more

    Day 7 - Casa Batllo

    November 3, 2017 in the Netherlands ⋅ ☁️ 7 °C

    Casa Batllo is one of three unusual buildings along Passaig del Gracia, together with Casa Amatller and Casa Lleo-Morera which makes up the Block of Discord. The house was originally built for a middle class family and in 1904 Gaudi was commissioned by the owners to refurbish the building. Casa Batllo reflects Gaudi's playful side and the strange and fantastic style he is known for.

    Gaudi replaced the original facade with a work in glass and stone. The facade was made to curve and bend like a wave, this was then plastered and covered in a mosaic of colored glass and ceramic fragments. The top of the building appears to look like the back of a dragon with a spine and scales.

    The interior of the house is just as remarkable. There is a staircase banister which looks like the spine of an animal; a room which is decorated to look like it is under water; glazed tiles; a wooden elevator and a huge central skylight. In all the structure is 5000 sq m
