Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Reflections of the Danube

 The main flow of the Danube does not go through central Vienna so we took the Metro out to Old Danube station.

 These photos were taken by the banks of the original route of the River Danube. It was a grey, miserable day but the beauty of this great river still shone through.













The water flowing through the Innere Stadt of Vienna is the Danube canal hence the trip out on the Metro.

These photos were taken as we crossed the Danube Canal

  1. Had to read twice to realize you meant with the river Donube, the old faithful Donau! Didn'tknow that english name. It seems many old cities are build along a river for transports in the past.

  6. I was confused by the two until I learnt that the city one was only a canal.
