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
The Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #140: A Change of Scenery
As we are travelling a bit, let’s take some music with us. This is an Aussie band called Fraternity. You may recognised the singer playing the recorder. It’s Bon Scott, the lead singer of ACDC when they first started out, before his time in ACDC.
Seoul, South Korea
But it’s always good to come home

I don’t really like combine photo challenges but my blog bestie Paula and Frank have set the challenges that are quite easy to combine. So for Thursdays Special: Traces of the Past from Lost in Translation and Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bridge from Dutch goes the Photo here are my Bridges from the Past.
The first Bridge is the Pont Saint-Bénézet or Pont d’Avignon over the Rhone River at Avignon. It’s not much of a bridge as it doesn’t go all the way across the Rhone but still attracts lots of tourists every year
Another not really a Bridge is the Pont du Gard which is an aqueduct which crosses the Gardon River. It is a three story bridge
In Verona is the Bridge the Castelvecchio or Old Castle which crosses the Adige River. A beautiful red brick example of Gothic architecture.
A colourful Bridge in Vienna in a marina and leads to fun park on the River Danube.
How many Bridges can you count that cross the Arno River in Florence?
Of course my favourite Bridge is the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
In a garden in Seoul is a pretty little Bridge crossing a tiny babbling brook.
I could not let a Bridge or a Traces of the Past photo challenge go by without putting in the wonderful little Bridges in Venice.
These little Bridges lead to the apartment in Venice where we love to stay out of the tourist areas.
Thanks for coming across my Bridge and into the Traces of the Past
