Message for our friends at St Martins:
Hello to everyone.
We have completed our tour of Eastern Europe and cycled from Passau to Vienna.
We enjoyed listening to the world biggest organ in St Stephen’s , Passau. She played a variety of music but we enjoyed Bach’s Toccata und Fugue. Eat your heart out Bill and Rob!! We heard a quartet in Vienna play Mozart and went to hear Gershwin in a Spanish Synagogue in Prague.
We have had a variety of weather from wet with floods to over 30 degree days. Hope you are all coping with the winter weather.
Best wishes
Barry and Hilary
