Danube Reflection - Passau, Germany

WILLKOMMEN IN PASSAU, DEUTSCHLAND! Strolling up Höllgasse in Passau, Germany's Artist's Alley. Colorful cobblestones are a fun way to wander through a beautiful town.

Looking toward the Rathausturm (City Hall Tower) on Höllgasse Street

The tower was constructed in 1889-92 to replace a previous tower that was destroyed in 1811.

Mural on the exterior of the City Hall.

This is why you measure twice and buy a van once in Europe...

In the wheelhouse with the Captain of the MS Savor.


Captain's orders that you must have his drink, "The Hiroshima:" 3/4th Triple Sec, lightly topped with Bailey's, couple drops grenadine to the center compliments of our awesome bartender Rahman. 

Gala night means tuxedo napkins.

A perfect compliment to our well-worn tiny hands...
