Upon a particularly dreary Friday morning a bit ago, I considered taking Eliot to the local inside playground. For 1.5 Euros, he can wear himself out without me having to stand around in the rain. But, darn it! I am tired of living in Europe and doing things we can do in our own country. Energetic toddler at my side or not, I was determined to discover a new town. Enter MONDSEE. If you think you are pronouncing it properly, you are probably not.
Following my trusty Ipad GPS co-pilot system, we arrive in Mondsee, which promises spectacular views, if it wasn’t so hazy.
Oh, and here is St Michael himself, standing outside…
I honestly didn’t know the church was the wedding scene as we were visiting… but sure enough, I spotted it in the 1965 trailer on youtube! Good thing, I might have broken out into song during our tour…come on, everybody now…”How do solve a problem like Maria?”
It is really gorgeous inside, I am so glad we made the trip.
It was very ornate and the stations of the cross were incredible elaborate. Good choice, Robert Wise.
There are so many beautiful and really really OLD churches in Europe. I sure wish I had the energy to photograph them all and write a post of all churches! But, I don’t.
After a sandwich at a cafe, we headed home just in time for Eliot to nap. I am not sure it will ever stop raining before we leave, but at least we didn’t get 8 inches of snow like Minnesota! Sorry to hear that, MN peeps!
Yours in gold-plated beauty,
