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Some previously unpublished photos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.

 A modern pedestrian bridge known as the Makartsteg…

It attracts lovers, locks and…

photographers.

Last year Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) City Council

removed all the locks from a similar bridge

over the Yarra River.

The reason being that the weight of the locks

was posing a safety hazard.

I wonder how often this one is cleared?
