Wachau Valley: Video

Wachau Valley

Wachau Valley: 30th March 2018

I don’t think I’d be doing much justice to our cruise if I just posted about the places we visited as if we just hopped from town to town; from –burg to –berg … which I think would make it sound a bit like a river-borne coach tour.

It’s the ‘bits in between’ that make the river cruise much more than that. Here’s a video of the first of the ‘bits in between’; Austria’s Wachau Valley, in which lie the village of Dürnstein and Melk Abbey, which we’re visiting next.

  1. I’ve cruised the same area and loved it: we probably did the same cruise even if not at the same time. I love river cruising, the getting off daily at some diffe4rent village and walking around, drinking coffee and people watching. So much nicer, I think, than ocean cruising. Just as well we all like different modes of travel or we’d be tripping over each other all the time!

    • I was fearing a sort of ‘coach tour’, where one place sort of merges with another. But, like I said, it’s the ‘bits in between’ that contribute to a much better experience, and I hope I’ve shown that with this, and subsequent videos.
