Well... Maybe it was day six.
I would like to replay all of it.
Day Two, we got to go in our itty bitty teeny tiny european car and drove on the autobahn (which does have a speed limit in Austria) and visited two cities that I could actually pronounce.
Melk and Spitz.
The only way I can remember those words is because they sound like "Milk" and "Spit" and learning a new language is all about word association, right?
The town of Spitz is a wine district on the Danube. There were vineyards everywhere.
We visited a 1000 year old church in Spitz, Austria. Rob and Jamie toured the town with us...
Lunch on the Danube...
The view from the other side of our lunch table...
Driving around in this town was interesting to say the least!
This is a two way street....
We visited a very old monastery in Melk...
This is a view of the town from the Abbey.
The monastery is still functional and holds weekly services.
The picture below was taken in the sanctuary. True story.
This catacomb saint was given as a gift to the church in 1762.
How would you like to sit on the pew next to this each week?
Ornate Spiral staircase in the monastery...
Thanks for taking me to Austria, B :)
And here's all of the pics from day two:
