Jo’s Monday Walk2017-Wk-11

Lucerne

 
Recently I completed a book titled

Song of the Bellbirds

written by an Australian author

Anne McCullagh Rennie.

Song of the Bellbirds follows the fortunes of a

young Australian Singer who wins a scholarship

to study Opera in Vienna.

One day her European born husband takes her to Lucerne…

and they wander across the Chapel Bridge.

As they walk arm in arm they admire the craftsmanship

taken to build the bridge…

and the Austrian husband translates all these writings

under the bridge’s roof for our Aussie Diva.

Just wish he was there when we were.

As you may have noticed the outside of the bridge

was covered with flowers in September…

and there was even room for a busker to

entertain tourists and locals alike.

So, not a long walk this week but one

I will remember for a very long time.

    • Thank you. We have noticed that many of our ‘reads’ are more alive if we have visited the area…especially those set in Europe. Even if we only touched the ‘tip of the iceberg’, so to speak.
