Just the usual continental breakfast this AM, before getting on our bus. Did I mention how the seating arrangements were worked out on the tour bus? Each morning when we climbed onto the bus, we moved one row forward. Once we had had our turn in the front row, the next morning, we moved all the way to the back row.
I will also remind you that Enzo used the A/C sparingly to save on fuel. While we felt cool in the front row, it was hotter than the hubs of H— in the back row. Our turn in the back rows soon came and we did not like it. No, we did not like it at alllllll.
This morning, we were off to Melk, Austria, a drive of some 4 1/2 hours. We dined along the route near Linz. This time, we both had the Goulash soup and bread, as well as a salad and apple strudel. I had a beer and Patty had tea. We really learned to like Goulash soup while we were in this part of the world.
From Linz, it was a short drive to Melk, where we boarded a Danube steamer for an hour long cruise down the Blue Danube to Krems.
From Krems, it was a one hour drive to Vienna, where we would spend the next 2 nights. We arrived in Vienna and stopped for supper in the Grinzing area of Vienna. The meal included salad, chicken, ham, pork and apple strudel, with wine. On the drive to our hotel, we found out the Eldorado hotel we were booked in had no room for us, due to our late arrival, so we were allocated to the lesser Novotel for one night. Thanks Enzo!
