European nostalgia

posted in: Life and things, Photography | 2

While the world is going mad and we can’t go anywhere outside Australia, it doesn’t hurt to reflect on good times in the past. Here are a few pictures taken in Europe in better times. I expect we won’t be going back there any time soon.

Ah, me. Good times.

Lake Geneva with swan
Cruising on the Danube River
The church spire silhouetted against the sunset as we sail away from Veere
Vineyards in the Rhine valley
The abbey on the hill at Bamberg, taken from the cathedral precinct.
The old town at Nuremberg and the last of the Autumn leaves
The town reflected in the river at Regensburg. The water was very low that year. Normally it rushes through here and there are no reflections.
Windmills at Zaanse Schans near Amsterdam
Autumn colours and sunrise tints at Durnstein on the Danube
Amsterdam – architecture, people, bikes, bridges

Apart from that, I’m setting up to write a new book (really). It’ll be a lot of fun. Don’t hold your breath, though. I can’t see me finishing it before Christmas.

Keep safe and don’t get too bored.

    Thank you for sharing, Greta. It’s like a mini vacation to see pictures from far away places. I look forward to traveling again when this is over.

      I’m glad you liked it. We’re looking forward to getting out ‘n about again. Will save me from talking politics on the blog 🙂
