A bit of Austria

Debbie’s Photo Challenge: Countries ending and starting with A

This was a no brainer for me but I’ve posted so much Australia you must be over Australia photos by now. On my very first European tour by bus, the tour ended in Vienna. I had a few days until my flight so I wander about. Here’s a selection of Austria.

My first view of Austria from the bus

I had to go to the Schonbrunn Palace

The view across the grounds

The main reason was the gardens – spectacular

Of course there were doors to be seen

I was lucky to be there for the Harvest Festival

Of course there had to be tractors

Of course I couldn’t go any where in the world without finding a bit of nature especially birds, I found a Hooded Crow

and this is a White Swan getting a bit of lunch
