Beautiful Blue Danube Waltz - 2002

BEAUTIFUL BLUE DANUBE WALTZ

GERMANY - REGENSBURG Grand Circle Travel representatives met us at the airport and took us by bus to our boat at Regensberg which was a ride of about an hour and a half through lovely Bavarian countryside with its neat farms and fields, looking lush and highly productive. Hops seemed to be the most prevalent crop and it was interesting to see how they “string it up” to grow (like green beans only much higher. Makes for very pretty fields. Our guide told us interesting facts about Bavaria and the Danube port city we were approaching. Bavaria is Germany’s “bread basket” as well as its beer capital; all the hops grown in Germany are produced in Bavaria. This is also the biggest of Germany’s “provinces” in land area.

We arrived at the port and boarded the M/S River Aria about 11 AM.
