Zupps has sourced a part in Melbourne - with turbo charger, gaskets, bolts and freight, the exercise will cost just under $4k (gulp) (big gulp). Handed over credit card details, and called off rest of troops. It now remains to wait until part arrives, expected in Austria Mon 14 (but then there will be Customs to deal with…) It appears we won’t be on the road until approx Fri 18, leaving 5 days to get to Rotterdam. So much for Leg One of our journey....
Back to vehicle for necessary goods and chattels, Erich generously loaning us his mini-van until Monday. Fueled up, and went a longer way back to Andorf via Goldberg. Spotted a striking coloured pheasant and another crested bird in the fields. Discussed options to explore surrounding countryside, maybe going to Prague overnight.
|Andorf's sister church...|
|Long live the pheasant....|
|The Andorf RatHaus (Town Hall)|
|Oops - don't think we were supposed to park in the church square on St Florian's Day|
Went through maps and brochures of possible destinations with Heidi - the option of a taking a scenic boat from Passau to Linz taking our initial interest. Heidi tells us she is fifth generation of her family running Baubock Gasthaus, and her sons will eventually be 6th.
