May 13, 2015 Hours spent building to date: 1,027
Still feeling pretty woozy after a 2:30 am wakeup call in Budapest Monday morning. But I did manage to reduce the beautiful rollover frame and the building frame to piles of scrap for the recycling center over the last couple days.
Even though this is supposed to be a boatbuilding site, I can’t resist posting some pictures of our wonderful trip down the Danube from Germany to Budapest. All the commercials about Viking River Cruises seem to be true based on our trip: beautiful ships, exceptional service, great food, great wine (all local — when you ask where a wine is from, they point out the window and say “right over there.”) The crew and guides are all Eastern European and are proud to tell the fascinating story of these beautiful and complicated lands.
I have a whole new Lotto fantasy because of this trip: “When I win the lottery, I will fly to Vienna for a cup of coffee.” And maybe a little sour cherry strudel.
