" What a fantastic day. Of course started the day off with breakfast but I had been up earlier to have my coffee and ciggy and this is the time that I sit down in the coffee room and get my diary up to date. At 8.30am we got the call to come on deck as we were sailing into Passau. What a wonderful sight, the little town on the banks with the mountains in the back ground. It is hard to put on paper and describe what we can see. We are so lucky to see all these beautiful things. At 9.30 we went on a walking tour around Passau and of course the church. St. Stevens it is an awesome church but to be quite honest I am a little over churches. However really enjoyed the town and our guide was great with a very good sense of humour. At 11.30 we went back to the church and listened to an organ recital from 12 to 12.30. The pipe organ is the biggest Cathedral organ in the world and it has between 17,000 and 18,000 pipes. What a great sound, Mac was able to put some of it on video although it wasn't allowed and he was tapped on the shoulder but managed to get most of it
