Vienna-2

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.

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.

Travel Theme-Balls

My

Balls

Travel Theme.

~~~~~

I need to be circumspect with my wording this week.These concrete balls were found in Vienna,

according to my tags.

However, I manage to see these balls

very regularly, day or night,

along the main tourist/visitor section

of Geelong’s waterfront.

 

  Finally, some French balls from Avignon.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Wanderlust

~~~~~

Some previously unpublished photos

from some of the cities we visited

during our travels last September.
Brugges or is it Bruge?

I m never sure and would love to hear/see

how locals spell the name.

No visit to Amsterdam would be complete

without visiting a diamond cutting factory.



Rhineland-Black Forest region.

Vienna.

Florence

Lucerne

Salzburg

Finally, Venice.

Salzburg-1

 
Leaving Lucerne we journeyed on to Salzburg.

The Salzburg Bridge which is…

covered with locks was one of the first attraction

we were guided to during our walk.

There is a similar (roughly) pedestrian bridge in Melbourne,

where the locks are being removed for safety (weight) reasons.

Across the bridge is a hotel the likes of which

I have not seen in Australia.

Then on to some o the narrow lane ways and streets

where all merchants have nice signs or symbols

of their trade hanging outside their premises.

  Although language was proving a bit of a barrier

one of these signs appears to be the same

all over the world.
