Saturday, August 8.
Up early, I mean early, 5.15. We needed to be in Vienna by 7.30, and it is a bus and tube ride to get there.
Why, we were taking a bus trip to Bratislava in Slovakia, 60 kms away. While there we were going on a guided walking tour of the city, lunch and a bus tour to the castle followed by a 1.5 hour trip up the Danube on a cat.
On the bus and away we go. We have seen some wind farms on our trip, including the one on the sandbank in the English Channel outside Hull, but the one along the border in Austria, is the grand daddy of them all. Counted 987 before I lost count. Could not take photos as the bus had a dark tint.
Arrived in Bratislava, to be met by our tour guide and off we went. One thing that we have noticed that everywhere we go in Europe they have some type of monument to the holocaust. Here was no different.
Council buildings and then off Tom lunch passing a building with a French cannonball still lodged in the wall after all these years, and a couple of funny statues.
The cat we were on cruised at 50kph, with a top speed of 70kph. One could nearly ski behind it if you could negotiate the rooster tails.
