I had planned to come to Passau to visit the family he lived with and to see Konrad, the German boy who had lived with my family in Melbourne for three months over 4 years ago. Never had l imagined that Passau was going to be so lovely. Its main church St Stephens is a Baroque masterpiece from the outside and quite simply stunning inside, and claims to contain the largest organ in all of Europe. I had no idea it was so stunning, and as Konrad opened the door l stood there shocked.
Neither did l realise that in the two days l was staying with the family that they would have me riding ride on mowers, chopping wood with a machine l was highly likely to kills myself with and stocking the cellar with the winters wood supply
The home l stayed in was lovely, and l enjoyed so much spending time with the family, watching Arsnic and Old Lace with Konrad while drinking beer and sitting up listening to funny stories about my brother time here! I spent one lovely evening attending a school music concert which Konrad was playing violin in, it was probably the highest standard school music concert l have ever seen!
I spent two lovely days in Passau, and adored my little room overlooking the whole town....a view l will never forget! Konrad and l departed early in the morning to Vienna in his familys Merc, driving on German Autobahn (which has no speed limit), listening to Micheal Jackson most of the way....never will forget that road-trip...what a Thriller!
