Wednesday Wonders

I can't remember now, but when we cruised the Danube/Main/Rhine, we went over a a river like this. 


He must pay his town tax so the town can pay his wages.


One for Elephant's Child. Anyone, where is Cappadocia? Don't look it up, only if you know. I don't.

  1. Cappadocia sounds Italian or Spanish. I have no idea where it is. I like the river barge above the road, that's a great idea, unless it floods. I remember seeing one somewhere online.

    1. River, guess who knows? See below. I just checked and the canal over the river is not the one we used, so there must be more than one.

  2. Cappadocia is in Turkey. Himself has been there but wimped out on a balloon flight over it. Which I would not have done. Thank you for the balloon. Too many balloons would be barely enough - and our Balloon Spectacular starts on Saturday.

    1. EC, I had a feeling you would know. Certain things I will do in Australia I will not in other countries. I hope the weather is good for your festival.

    1. Impressive, Gosia. The Germans do know how to do things.

  4. Crikey Andrew ..... that first picture has Mum all confused. How can it be?? She and Dad have thought about doing one of those cruises. They LOVE Germany and have been many times travelling by car but as they are getting older thought a cruise might be less stressful. Mum likes her own space though and doesn't know that she would cope with lots of people on board.

    1. Charlie, I can highly recommend the cruise, well ours, from Budapest to Amsterdam. I understand your Mum's point about crowding. Our dinner was always a sit down affair with waiters. Lunch was mostly at our expense off the boat. So it is only the buffet breakfast that I found hard going. Even so, you could order the breakfast to be cooked and served to you at the table. That was the only time the people on the ship really...well, I don't have to explain, do I.

    1. Give the lady a prize. I am going to find out where we crossed a river like that.

  6. There's one of those canal bridges over a river just up river from where I live. It's only for private holiday-makers now, the small out-of-date canal is closed to commercial traffic.

    1. Interesting Walt. I guess it is quite small scale.

    1. Grace, yes, a rather lonely life. Perhaps tourists visit.

  8. My beloved designed our tour of Turkey... so I wasn't sure I would enjoy myself. But it was fantastic!

    1. There you go, Hels. Men can get it right, at times. Pretty well off limits to tourists now. Our cruise has cancelled the Turkey component of the trip.

  9. The last I knew Cappadocia is in Turkey...I imagine it still is.

    1. Top of the class, Lee, although you imagining it still is, is wisely cautious with European borders.

  10. Your cruise was divine.
    I thibk of it every time I go through a new issue of RoyalAuto and see the ads there.
    Port Phillip Bay goes over the main road at Safety Beach like that. very weird. and costly. for a failed housing project.

    Turkey has black roses. only interesting thing about them that I can see. never forget WW1

    1. Annie, so do I. The cost was high and the trip reflected it. See a post in a day or so about our forthcoming holiday.

      Ah, yes, Shark Bay, now known as Martha's Cove, which sounds a little naughty. It is a while since I have checked what is happened with the Cove.

  11. Cappadocia is one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen and is in Turkey ! It looks like if you were on the moon ! Movies have been shot there just because of this strange landscape. I have been there twice ! Just have a look on pictures !
