Sunday trip




The town of Retz, about 50 miles NNW of Vienna, only a few miles from the neighbouring country Czech Republic, is a small town with 4.000 inhabitants.
Oh yes, this is a small town, even in Austria!!!

Retz is famous for its wine culture.

We made a trip to Retz last weekend because my niece attends a 3 years tourist school there and a vintage festival was held. Because the graves are ripe and sweet. And we wanted to meet her and meet her boyfriend. She is 16. :)
Granit and silt and a very mild climate account for the quality of the grape. And the wine.

And the landscape is enchanting!

IS THERE A BLOGGER PROBLELM?
IM TRYING TO UPLOAD SOME PICTURES THE WHOLE EVENING BUT IT DOES NOT WORK!

Yes, it seems so, so I will try tomorrow!

Hi Maria,

I have been having problems since Mercury Retrograde began on September 24th. It ends October 15th.

I found with my posts to have the narrative pretyped with symbols where to place the photos, then when in the new post feature put the photos in one by one without going into the preview (this seems to mess everything up, too), leaving extra space between photos and text before publishing. Although it could be due to the volume of blogger users.

It will end soon, just hang in there.
