Wachau: Steely Danube

Following the news in the summer of 2017, we hear that the infrastructure of Southern Europe is collapsing under the weight of boat people being picked up by the Mafia a few metres from the Libyan coast, we hear that Rome is imposing a curfew on running water, we hear of multiple arson-encouraged forest fires sweeping across nation after nation, we hear that activists in Barcelona and Mallorca are threatening direct action against mass tourism, we hear that Brits are missing their flights because of four-hour queues in and out of the Schengen zone; in short, we hear that there are too many people on the planet, all taking too many holidays in the same overcrowded places. 5,884 more words

the beautiful Wachau and Melk Abbey

The Wachau is a region you should definitely not miss out on. Unbelievably, it took me  22 years until last week I finally went to see one out of my country’s ten UNESCO world heritage sites. 224 more words

die wunderschöne Wachau und Stift Melk

Die Wachau ist eindeutig ein Ort, den man nicht missen sollte. Eine 22 Jahre-alte Wienerin bin ich schon, und es hat bis letzte Woche gedauert, mir einen Ort meiner Heimat, der zum UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe gehört, anzusehen. 237 more words
