Well, here I am back at home again. Everything's washed, ironed, stuck away, hubby's back at work... normal life has us again in it's grip.
We had a very, very nice holiday, I survived the cycling... and was still able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and towns, the posh hotels and the wonderful meals we had.

During the next weeks I will take you to a photographic tour along the Danube, and I hope you enjoy what you get to see.

Today I start with the beautiful town of Passau, situated on the German side of the German/Austrian border, at the confluence of three rivers: Danube, Inn and Ilz, which causes very often problems due to floodings. But the inhabitants learned to live with it.

This was the start of our tour.
Till next time,

A wonderful day to be in this lovely City Johanna. I'm glad the cycling is fading into a memory and the images are coming to the front of your thoughts.

The best thing about holidays is the planning of the next!! Three lovely images here. I think the first could benefit with some cropping of the foreground.

What beautiful images to start your holidays with Johanna. I do hope the weather was kind to you and that you were able to enjoy t.
I'm sure the most enjoyable part of a woman's holiday is to get home,have a coffee then get the washing machine working overtime.
Thank you for giving so many of my recent images your attention.It was kind of you.

Three lovely captures from you trip. I am particularly drawn to the buildings in v3.
I wish we could get a little flooding in my part of the world! Scorching heat, drought, and fires - that's what's going on right now.......
