My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Wachau, Austria 2006 - Scenic Romantik View...

"Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss..."

(Scenic view from the cruise boat)

Today we took a full-day excursion to Wachau. The first part of the trip from Vienna was by bus and second part by boat. The journey drived through the beauty of Wachau scenery full of history and legends of the Danube.

(Absorbing the view from the Danube)

The Wachau is a stretch of the Danube Valley between Melk and Krems, a landscape of high visual quality. It preserves in an intact and visible form many traces in terms of architecture, monasteries, castles, ruins, towns and villages, and agricultural use for the cultivation of vines.

(On the cruise boat)

The romantic boat trip started from Spitz, winds its way past charming old villages and steep wineyards. The old castles, one of them the Durnstein is famous because here King Richard the Lion Heart was imprisoned, while waiting for his ransom to arrive from England.

(Visiting the Abbey)

The heart of the Wachau is the old wine-merchants’ town of Krems. The highlight of the visit is Melk, the magnificient Benedictine Abbey.
