Yes, a good four hours spent wandering around the Melk abbey on a rainy day but there are miles to go yet

    Hi U 2,
    Kirby R. was just here for a chin wag and he was talking about their tour of the Abbey at Melk but they were there on a River cruise and not on bikes.
    Sound fabulous!
    Are you planning on going all the way to the Black Sea?
    When do you get to France?
    Hugs Annie B.
