Passau, Germany - 26th June 2009

Hello from Bavaria,

 

We started our tour in Passau. We explored the wonderful city and started with the Passauer Dom.

 

 

Then we saw this lovely fountain with the beautiful building.

 

 

Over the Danube we saw the Veste Oberhaus on the hill – it has a very long wall.

 

 

Do you know that the Danube is the second longest river of Europe? And I will make a cruise on it – it is amazing!!!

 

 

 

 

Greetings

Passau, Germany - 27th June 2009

Hello from Passau again !

 

This morning we spent in Passau again. We had a beautiful view over the Danube.

 

 

Because Rike know, that we wouldn't love the boring long trip with the bus in the afternoon, we were allowed to play and we saw a great car of the fire department.

 

 

 

 

Here we are on the long trip from Passau to Budapest. But we had fun – ToyVoyagers have always fun.

Budapest, Hungary - 28th June 2009

Hello from Budapest!

 

We are in the capital of Hungary – normally it is sunny here, but we have an adventure trip, so we have been in a big thunderstorm with a lot of rain. Can you see me under the umbrella?

 

 

 

We went back onto the ship – and found our bed that pretty !

 

 

After the dinner we had much better weather, so we went out. This is our ship – the Arosa Bella.

 

 

This is the most famous bridge in Budapest. Really pretty!

 

 

Postboxes are really funny here – we loved them.

along the Danube, Hungary - 29th June 2009

Hello from Hungary!

 

Today we took a trip with the bus, because we wanted to see the Donau-Knee. You will see it on one of the photos. First we visited a small village, where many artists live. It has a nice church – and a great place.

 

 

 

Then we went to a big Fortress, called Visegrad. We saw the Donau-Knee there, And later, from the place, where we had dinner, we saw the Fortress,

 

 

 

We drove to the cathedral of Esztergom, one of the largest churches of Europe. It was amazing. When we stood next to it, we saw our ship in the Danube. Of course I wanted a photo !

 

 

Back on the ship, we made a photo of the cathedral of Esztergom. Isn't it beautiful? After it, I played on the ship.

Hello from Melk!

 

Today we visited the beautiful cathedral of Melk. It was so beautiful – I loved the interior and the garden,too.

 

 

 

 

 

Back on the ship I played chess, but I didn't understand how to play Shuffleboard.
