I was going to use some

graffiti style street art

however, walked another path.

Near the

El Alamein Fountain,

King Cross, Sydney,

Australia.

The ‘Gate of Violence’

In the middle of Albertina Platz is the walk-in monument sculpture.

The Monument against War and Fascism

was unveiled in 1988 to preserve the memory

of the darkest era in Austrian history

and is dedicated to all victims of war and fascism.

During our brief visit…

…to Vienna, we spent each night admiring this…

…heavenly view on the ceiling above us

before lights out.

Below is an area of The Great Ocean Road,

near The Twelve Apostles,

known as Gibsons Steps.

I don’t recall seeing steps but people who were

on the sand materialised in the car park

in a short space of time.

Vatican steps.

 

Viennese steps.

These steps are near the beginning of

the Orakei Korako Geothermal walk…

1.8 kilometres and nearly 666 steps later

(there was some more around the corner)

we were nearly there.

My knees were protesting and they

screamed even louder when they saw we had

several flights of these stairs to and from our room.

That was the night we were offered a ground floor room.

And took it.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Worth

~~~~~

In my youth I learned that ‘spending a penny

was a euphemism for going  to the toilet/bathroom.

So I just had to take a photo, or two…

of these toilets in vienna during a break inn our dinner.

I have never previously seen toilets

decorated in this fashion.

Everything from the wall art to the chandelier

made it worth spending a penny.

 

 

To make it even better I don’t remember

there being a charge for their use as with many other

places we stopped at while in Europe.

Then we visited Pompeii and were so grateful for the comfort

and privacy we had when spending our pennies,

at earlier and subsequent stops.  🙂

I believe ‘the ladies‘ was decorated in similar fashion.

While at dinner in Vienna I received a tap on my shoulder

and realized that I was being asked to dance.

It took a few shuffles of a very small dancing area

to realise my partner did not speak English…

well not the Australian version…

and I could not speak any other European language

other than some French.

Still we enjoyed five minutes or so

of dancing during which I managed

to avoid my partner’s toes.

 

She must have appreciated this fact, as…

a few minutes after we parted ways she returned

with this certificate from the Vienna Waltz Academy.

Well alright, alright….everyone who danced received one.   🙂

I must try to translate the text one day.
