A is for Austria

Abbey Melk, Austria 2008

Braunvieh (German: Brown cattle), typical for Austria
 This is for the new round of ABC Wednesday. I don't know if I'll stick to geographical words. This is the beginning.
I spend my childhood holidays in our neighboring country.

I have never been to Austria, but many of the photos I have seen of it make it seem like a fairytale place, a magical place.

Australia fascinates me all the time. Is that an Abbey for monks? Looks like the cow is not okey to be taken a picture, lol! ^_^

Austria is so beautiful. For a long time it was for Dutchmen one of the top countries to go on vacation. I've been there twice on vacation, and a few other times traveling through, to go to another country.

Beautiful! My grandfather was from Austria; he came to the USA before the first world war. I'd love to see Abbe Melk one day, and the rest of your beautiful country too.

I've always thought it would be nice to visit Austria. The Alpine meadows sound so beautiful.

Whenever I drive through Austria (once every five years or so) I can see all those churches from the motorway and they all look beautiful. That abbey certainly is no exception: great A!
