Flag of Germany  , Bavaria,
Saturday, May 26, 2012

Early morning with a bit of yoga but along came too many people - on deck to watch the scenes as we travelled up the Danube - exquisite!! Neat to see the confluence of 3 rivers - Green Inns river, dirtier Danube and blackish LLZ rivers. Landed in Passau thinking it wouldn't be much but it was precious.  Tour was to be 2 hours - R and I made it about 30 minutes - quit when she was explaining German license plates!!  had a great cappuccino in the main square and looked about until the organ concert in the St. Stephan's Cathedral.  Great to stop and just absorb the sounds produced by Europe's largest pipe organ.  Down the hill for a crappy German meal - thanks Rich - urgg but on we go.
3 of us hopped bikes for the best ride yet - 22.78 km up one side of the Inn River into Austria then back the other side into Germany again.  Great ride!!  on my funny 6 gear bike with shocks so I bounced like a rubber ball on the seat - hilarious.  Competitive element at it's best when dearest "Trophy Wife" had the gall to ring her stupid bike bell and go by MOI!! Of course I had to pass her very shortly after and laffingly say "lovely day for a ride" but being the Torontonian she was- never cracked a smile.  We stopped for a quick drink at a wee town called Wernstein - all sorts of such stops along the way (John had a short beer lol) and headed back to Passau. We BEAT all those Torontonians by at least 45 minutes!!  HA!  had a shower, popped outside to go to Beer Fest on the Bridge and they were staggering back to the ship - no competition!!
Joined Lanett and John on the Bridge they closed for a beer celebration (saw a Beer Barge with crazy German guys singing away) hilarious.  Young Canadian couple joined us - think they were glad to find us and have a big beer with us. 
Back for the Captains final dinner and late to bed yet again after packing.  Wonderful cruise but also will be good to be on our own again.
