Destination: Melk and Dürnstein, Austria

Hello, folks!

This travel post will actually be shorter than the previous, 1000-plus word monsters that I have been churning out these last few days. Shocker, I know(!), but basically these two particular destinations while on my vacation in April (Melk and Dürnstein) were such small little towns that they were simply a matter of just passing through them, for the gorgeous, scenery of the Wachau Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its views of the Danube River, green hills, and picturesque vineyards. 361 more words

What can you say about one of the greatest Austrian riesling white wines except superb, sublime and ridiculous. This white is so complex it blows the mind and the minerality steeps deep into your palate.

We spent lunchtime sailing though the Wachau valley. Very scenic even in the winter. Steep sides down to the Danube. This is wine country!

As we approached the village we could see the ruined castle on the hilltop. 300 more words
