More travel photos! But this post is short. I have a lot of photos to go through - it's easy to click, click, click and take hundreds of photos but not so easy to sort through them all. At least it's not film! I remember those days - the smell of the film, lead bags to get through the x-ray machine, and then the price of having to get those rolls developed! But I digress...

On our way to Vienna in July (goodness, it's been that long already!), we stopped at the little town of Melk, which is about 50 miles (86 km) west of Vienna, on the Danube river in Austria.

Melk, Austria
We stopped here because my "Off the Beaten Track Austria" book explained that the large building on the hill was a Benedictine abbey and that you couldn't miss it from the motorway. So we thought we'd get a closer look and stretch our legs.
The pictures don't do it justice. It was a gray day, getting late and we didn't have a good vantage point. Click here to see a much better photo from someone else.

Melk, Austria
But we did have a nice little stroll through the quaint town.
