After an overnight trip from Passau and after dinner music by Ivan (story for another day) which we slept through, arrived into Bach which is just outside the larger town of Regensburg. We joined the walking tour of the city and this was another very pretty town. Lots of roman ruins from previous tenants. Engineers would appreciate this archway which has no mortar or other means to hold the rock work together.
Lots of cobbled streets and old houses. Great shops and relatively cheap for handbags (just what I need to go with my Austrian outfits).
Part of the day walking tour was a voucher to get....wait for it a Wurstkuchl. This is the one and only, world famous Wurstkuchl too. It was served up to me in the equally famous fried sausage kitchen and it came with sauerkraut and homemade mustard. Just devine its famous for me anyway.
Back onboard for another creation left on the bed by our steward. Heavens knows how they do this let alone how long it must take. One towel, extraordinary from my uncreative perspective.
Sailed from Regensburg and must say we could have stayed longer. What a liveable place, in fact my timing all day had been perfect. Found a laundromat close to the boat, missed the cuckoo-clock presentation at the Drubba store and missed the tour director Han's end of day port talk. Life doesn't get better.
Tonight we get to watch some entertainment with Hans O'Marusch in the lounge. Saw this dude come onboard late this afternoon and wasn't quick enough to get a photo. I shit you not, he had a moustache that even Teddy would be jealous of, dressed in my favourite outfit including the Austrian hat. Can't wait to see what this dude does, and with a name O'Marusch. His relatives must have been German/Irish. Will get you a photo for tomorrow, him and the normal nightly entertainment with Ivan is going to be great. Maybe better than the male Madonna impersonator.
