Regensburg to Cesky Krumlov

Danube at Sunset, Oom Pah Pah, and a Magical untouched Rennaisance Town

sunny 27 °C

Today it was another 3 countries in one day experience. Starting at Passau, Germany then onto Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic then finishing here at Linz, Austria. At present Scenic Ruby is having a barbeque for the passengers and how they are tucking into it. We had a wonderful day traveling 1 1/2 hours from Passau to the untouched beauty of Cesky Krumlov which was the setting for Edward Norton's movie - The Illusionist. Untouched by the Germans and almost abandoned after 500 years of occupation during the Communist rule of Czechoslovakia it has recovered and many of buildings have been restored.

The cobbled streets are hard on some peoples feet but the experience was worthwhile. Climbing on the old Palace walls allows a wonderful view of the tiled roofs and the colourful buildings dating back over 500 years. Palace of Cesky Krumlov

Yesterday it was Regensburg and its medieval centre. CIMG2924

Very hot but beautiful again and we are tiring after nearly 4 weeks on the road. There is a certain degree of exhaustion after seeing one medieval gem after another although the river cruise should not be missed if the opportunity arises. Yesterday as we cruised down the Danube we experienced a symmetrical sunset which was mirrored beautifully in the river as we sailed along. After our dinner with convivial company we were entertained by a typical Bavarian band - Oom Pah Pahing for an hour. We made the mistake of sitting on a table next to the dance floor and Celina was the first to be asked to dance with the Band Leader. No Lederhosen or knee slapping but by the time Celina was spun around for minutes she was quite unstable as she returned to the table. Celina on Scenic Ruby

Hiya from downunder :}
Hope you've had a lovely day in Vienna and that the weather is a little cooler for you there. How was the organ recital?
I got your car running again today and took Josh off to the movies. He's missing you a lot, as am I, but we loved hearing from you :}
