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.

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.

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Some previously unpublished photos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.

Odd Ball

Week 10, 2017

~~~~~

While having dinner one night in Vienna,

I received a tap on the shoulder and was asked to dance.

So with an almighty language barrier preventing much conversation

I spent the next five minutes shuffling around

on a carpeted floor, in rubber soled shoes,

with a woman who was clearly a better dancer than I.

I won’t even mention that the area was about two feet wide

and waiters were continually hurrying to and from

their destinations every few minutes.

When the music stopped I was presented with this certificate,

‘from the Academy’ as wait staff told me.

It’s not often I get a certificate, for anything.

MGW gets a certificate every tine she has to renew her first aid.

My work place did not to hand out records of evidence to participating staff,

despite wanting evidence that we had completed the required courses.

 Hence one of us has a huge pile of work related certificates

and one has many less.

So, I am trying to hang on to this one for dear life and

decided to photograph it in case of damage.

This may be my ”oddest,” Odd Ball. 😀
