Pictures of the Day – May 13-16, 2010: The Two "Burgs"

Finally, a few Pictures of the Day from Europe! As I said before, I took around 1700 pictures on our three week trip, which I know is thoroughly ridiculous. Of those, around half are crap, and then there are many similar ones, or ones that aren’t worth looking at. In any case, I went through a few more days of pictures, and I’ve got four more Pictures of the Day for you.
During the first four or five days of our trip, we were staying with the Friedrich family in Regenstauf, near Regensburg. I met them when I was studying in Regensburg in 2001-02, and we’ve been friends ever since. During our stay with them, we also took a day trip to Austria to visit their daughter Maria in Salzburg, hence the two “Burgs” in the title.

So, here are the Pictures of the Day, but be sure to check out the Leftovers for quite a few more interesting pictures, if you have the time or interest. And like I said, don’t worry, I didn’t put up anything close to 1700 pictures!


May 13, 2010: The house number at the Friedrich’s, the first place we stayed in Germany. The family is wonderful, and we had a great time with them.

May 14, 2010: A fountain in Regensburg. If you thought wolves in sheep’s clothing was bad, you should see a wolf in priests’ clothing. On the other side of the fountain, the priest is preaching to the ducks.

May 15, 2010: From our day trip to Austria. These are some strange skeletons in the crypt in the main church in Salzburg. Just seemed a bit creepy for church.

May 16, 2010: Maj, doing her best impression of a Russian icon painting. Taken in a cafe in Regensburg.

So, hope there was something interesting for you here. I’ll keep working on getting the other days up as soon as possible, but in the meantime, if you want to see more pictures, check out the links below. Thanks for reading and looking!
