Rain

Our first wet, but not cold, day was in Venice.

Umbrellas were the order of the morning.

Finding a seat in a sidewalk coffee shop,

which barely kept us dry, was an ideal way to

spend an hour or so lovingly caressing a cup of coffee.

The long coffee break was so we did not have to walk

several hundred yards, in the rain, and back again

to board the ferry for our journey to, and lunch at, Murano.

 Even in steady rain colourful Murano

was well worth the visit.

A convivial afternoon was had by all.

Although ponchos and umbrellas were still clearly

 heading the fashion trend, Mother Nature eased up

a little as we walked back to our ferry and

a ride back to our hotel.

Black and White Tuesday

We purchased, or should I say MGW purchased,

these cups/mugs…
at Johannesburg airport three or four years ago.

 Not just cups but a matching vase…

which was nicely decorated with some form water plant.

In Amsterdam last year we came upon

this display of tea cups in a coffee shop.

Some more…

from our walk…

around Vienna.

It seemed like every other tourist was also trying for his shot.

 We did have a similar sight in Melbourne…

advertising Coca-Cola, of all things.

Jo’s Monday Walk

Week-20

Vienna

I am running so late with this post, this week…

that I will restrict commentary to the bare minimum.

We had some free time and were…

able to wander around enjoying the sites

as we happened upon them.

I still marvel at the workmanship involved in…

creating the statues and fountains of Europe.

 

Fortunately we were able to find a place

to sit, rest and have a quiet coffee when required.

My

Cream

Travel Theme.

My creamy post for this week was nearly a non-event…

until I remembered our morning tea slice

of Black Forest Cake which probably contained

enough calories to last us several days.

That thought then lead on to our

strawberry and cream morning tea.

Sadly we did not sample these as we were

still feeling the effects of a

larger than normal breakfast.

The private sections of the Nice beach front were…

marked by areas of umbrellas.

St Peter’s Square at the

Salzburg – 2

A Few shots from our walk around Salzburg.
 
This sign announcing Salzburg University

looked like a work of art.

And the dates, like this, on buildings are

never seen in Australia.

1360…over four hundred years

before Australia was settled.

 

Craftmanship of this door.

Love the workmanship in all the fountains…

although this horse does look like it is pain.

By the time we sighted these blokes my feet

were voting to hire one of them.
