Viking Grand European Tour: Clouds along Rhine River

The landscape along the Rhine River was a moving panorama outside my stateroom on the Viking Longship Bestla. Disclosure: I was fortunate to be Viking Cruises’ guest on the 15-day Viking Grand European Tour. All photos captured by my independent eye.

Very fun! I just finished the Grand European Tour, In the opposite direction I think. I missed out on the schnapps alas, but I saw lederhosen and dirndls aplenty.
 
As my +Viking River Cruises Grand European Tour prepared to sail from Krems, Austria to Vienna last night, the crew put on an Austrian-themed evening, with most dressed up in traditional dirndl skirts or lederhosen. The buffet was a smorgasbord of Austrian specialties and the Schnapps flowed liberally. They tell me that different varieties tasted like different fruits and I'll have to take their word for it, since I don't drink. All through dinner we were serenaded by local musicians. I sat at what has become my favorite table in the restaurant, with my new friends from Quebec City. They have renewed my desire to learn to speak French, though I am still struggling to say the word for street - rue - correctly and most of the time we end up laughing hysterically over my tongue-twisted attempts. It may look simple, but I assure you it is not!!

De la Renaissance au début du XXe siècle et de Rome à Paris en passant par Londres, les artistes femmes ont lutté pendant des siècles pour accéder à la reconnaissance, entre petites avancées et longs moments d’exclusion. Il fallait la force d’une Artemisia Gentileschi pour se hisser dans le cercle des grandes peintres de son temps, le talent d’une Angelica Kauffmann pour séduire la cour d’Angleterre et devenir une des fondatrices de la Royal Acad...
