Up early and on the bus by 8.00 am for our day trip to Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. First we went to the lookout over Passau. Very nice.
Slept all the way in the bus to Cesky Krumlov (Czech for Crooked Meadow). Cesky Krumlov is a fantastic mediaeval town, well worth a visit, with cobble stone streets and a huge big town square.
Our guided tour ended with lunch in a lovely hotel, then we were on our own.
The perfect face for a medieval costume
We bought a pastry roll (hollow) thing which was hot and dipped in sugar and cinnamon. Nice! We stood and watched them making them for ages. We walked around with Peter from Sydney, Neville and Rose from Mollymook and Karen from Ballina.
Working out our money - four heads are better than one!
We bought an icecream. Phil fell over from one step off the ground. He's okay but has a sore shoulder. It could have been much worse. He rolled on his shoulder to save his camera. The weather is now hot and sunny. FINALLY.
Slept all the way back on the bus.
In our absence, the boat had sailed to Linz. We had been in three countries in one day - Germany, Czech Republic and Austria. Back on board and had a barbecue dinner on the sun deck - finally sunny and dry.
After dinner watched a cooking demo on how to make paella and then into bed by 10.30 pm. Big day but good. Others did the "Sound of Music" tour to Salzburg and said that was good too.
