Kalocsa

This morning we sat on the upper deck with our friends and watched the world go by. Bus picked us up in the afternoon. We drove into Kalocsa where we went into the convent church and listened to an organ recital. We then were taken to a horse farm on the puczta. We got a glass of wine and bread and dripping with sweet paprika. It was actually very tasty. We then saw a show of horsemanship. It was quite fun. Back in time for a last session in the spa and dinner. During dinner we wondered why we were turning round and going back the way. Turned out that one of the passengers had fallen and badly cut himself and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance. We have since heard that it wasn't too serious and hopefully he will be able to return for the rest of his holiday.

After dinner we had our usual walk on deck and finished packing and then had a last evening in the lounge with a few cocktails/whiskies and said our goodbyes to our Australian friends most of whom were continuing on as far as Amsterdam. Altogether a very enjoyable holiday made even more enjoyable by the company.

Novi Sad

Arrived in Novi Sad this morning. Bus trip to see a Monastry but no photos allowed. There was a wedding about to go in so we didn't get long. Then off to see a little village. We went to see the church and again there was a wedding about to take place which was quite interesting they had gold crowns for the ceremony. While we were in the church the clouds opened and even with a jacket and umbrella we were absolutely drenched. I was wringing my skirt out on the bus! We had to give our shoes to the staff on board to get dried as it would have taken weeks to dry them! We were supposed to get time in Novi Sad but got a drive around instead as it was still absolutely coming down like a waterfall. Very few pictures as it was just so wet.

Sailing day.

Today was a sailing day. Beautiful day. Up on deck in swimwear. At 11 was a traditional German style "second breakfast". Sausages, salads, beer and wine etc. Then through the iron gates. Got a bit warm then because we didn't get the breeze. After lunch went for a spa. Then up on deck for a drink or two before dinner. Now sailing between Serbia and Romania. Just passed Drobetu Turnu Severin.

Russe

Today we arrived early in Russe. Excursion left at 9.30. Got driven to the main sites which were only about 10 minutes away. Pretty city.

After lunch just went for a spa and a snooze.

After dinner it was the crew show. Quite a laugh. Then dancing. For once we were not last out of the lounge but we decided to go up on the sun deck for some air and by the time we came down everyone was out of the lounge so we were still last in bed!
