Hey, sunshine!

So today we saw some castles and fortresses as we cruised along the Danube. Pretty nice.

The most impressive thing was Melk Abbey. It has been in existence for something like a thousand years, although the current abbey was built in the early 1700s.

We had a nice tour, and I won't bore you with the hundreds of pictures I took.

You're welcome.

Honestly, after days of fog and haze and clouds, the best thing was to finally see the sun for a couple of hours this afternoon.

We walked back down the hill from the abbey to the ship, and then we rewarded ourselves by opening our bottle of Hungarian ice wine. It's Tokaji Aszu 6, and it's delicious. Look it up if you're interested.

Then we had a short German lesson from the staff in preparation for Germany.

That is all. Gute nacht.
