Greetings from the Danube River. It’s going on midnight Monday and we finally just set sail from Bratislava, Slovakia. By morning, we’ll be arriving in Vienna, Austria.
The weather today in Bratislava was absolutely gorgeous with a high of 72 degrees and I hear that snow is still in the forecast back home in the Quad Cities. Here is what snow on the Alps looked like Sunday on our flight from Zurich, Switzerland, to Budapest, Hungary.
Because of a maintenance problem at a lock, our cruise did not set sail Sunday night from Budapest and we didn’t get to explore the city prior to departure.
Instead, we were bussed from the airport to a hotel in Budapest where we got on another bus and traveled two hours in the countryside to Bratislava, where we were supposed to sail on the first night.
Here’s a picture of that minutes long visit in Budapest.
Here are a few from Bratislava today.
We finally left Bratislava around 11 p.m. local time here and just crossed over into Austria now that we’re finally sailing.
P.S. Here are all of the pictures from Bratislava.
