Another gift,another trip.

Another gift that arrived on St. Valentine's day again for my birthday was from my dear life long pen friend from Austria, Sigrid. We had met once for a while years ago and again last summer when we were invited by dear Sigrid and her family to spend a week in Austria. We had a great time and visited some lovely places. So here is a short tour of Austria as we saw it. Hopefully we will meet again soon.
 I think one of the most difficult things to take a photo of is a Swarowski crystal!Isn't it sweet?I loved it!
 And here are some photos from Austria.
The forest near Sigrid's house in Linz.
 Linz on the Danube.
 At Hellbrunn Palace with the amazingly entertaining fountains.My son got soaked there.
 Hellbrunn gardens were really beautiful.
 My son looking away at Mondsee.
 Sigrid and I at Mondsee.Our colours are matching the gorgeous colourful buildings behind us.
 At Sankt Gilgen park.
 At Schafberg we went up with the train and saw Wolfgangsee under us. The smell of the wildflowers and the view were awesome
 The Linz Cathedral.
 Schloss Schonbrunn,Sissy's Palace.
 The flamingoes in the Vienna Zoo.
 The hippos in the Zoo.
 The Natural History Museum in Wien which was very interesting.
