Our Little Corner of the World...Rollin' Along the River...




One thing they don't tell you in the literature about the
Viking Amsterdam-Budapest cruise....




...is how much time you'll spend, on the front deck, 
watching, as the ship passes through lock, after lock, after lock, after lock...
well over 60 locks in total!!!



The first one was pretty fascinating...


...watching as the lock filled and raised the ship to the height of the next step... 


...fascinating to say the least!
Then of course, you start to notice the little things...


...like the bedraggled swan on the side of the lock, as you first enter...


Then the opening of the gates is pretty incredible...
and we're all of a sudden at the next level...

Then on to the next one...
and the next...
and the next...
until you're saying to yourself...
A-B-L...
ANOTHER  BLOODY  LOCK!!!



...and meeting new friends along the way...
