Looking through the itinerary of my upcoming Danube River trip, I see that most tours are of churches and castles, including the "Sound of Music" fairyland. Not for me. I will avoid the tours and see the sites and sounds on my own--cities and countryside--off the beaten paths.

I love your description, Felaine.

Architecture can be wonderful, and many buildings are made to impress. It doesn't really matter if it's old or new, bank building, church or train station. I love the way an architect can play with visitors's feelings.

I'd rather visit some redwoods, or a waterfall than a fancy, overblown church.  My dad took me to Yosemite when I was 6 or 7 ; I didn't care much for camping in a tent, but the waterfalls were breathtaking.  When I was on the road in 1959 we had a chance to grab a bus from Buffalo to Niagara Falls...that was like standing in the middle of a never-ending earthquake....scared me.But I stood at the edge of the platform and just stared at the tons of water pouring over the edge.

No Joan, I wouldn't have that crap in my house. I got it via Twitter.

Patricia, did you mark that bible? Whoever, thanks a trillion! I am reposting on Facebook. 

I like the bus ride through a city as well. I had done that in E. Berlin before the wall came down, and it was quite an experience  

I have gone into great cathedrals and temples of ancient Greece and Turkey and Crete, as well as the usual ones in western Europe. I try to imagine the people who did the carvings and their home lives. I often asked people to show me where the builders and carvers lived and in some cases I was able to find their homes. The craftspeople were hard working, talented in their fields, dedicated, faithful in most instances. Primitive lifestyles in comparison with the edifices they created. I've also stood in grand places in Mexico and Asia.

I stood in awe of what humans can do if they have inspiration.  The talents of Homo sapiens shine through the different beliefs in order to get to their supreme talents. Do you think an atheist or secularist can see beyond the usual to create the unusual?  

I think so.

Yeah, they are the last places I'd want to take a tour of, but I still say that's where the prayin' belongs.

I think scenery beats old religious places hands down......mountains, lakes, rivers, forests, valleys, bridges, parks, gardens, even city designs, etc. Museums, wineries, libraries, are an interest as well.

A cheap way to tour a city is to jump on a city bus & go the whole route before transferring to another.

Patricia, I think a lot of churches were built to intimidate the common people.  I've seen comments, even in A/N, by people who have gone on "historical" tours of Europe, and the powerful emotions they felt when entering the larger cathedrals.

They all look creepy to me.

Women never contributed a line to the bybull............

You'd have to shake a loooong time, Randall! But I feel the same.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 8, 2015 at 8:19am

Yes, Spud, things like that really gripe me. I want to grab hold of those idiots (the walk outers) and shake sense into them. Or just punch them.

French toast this morning! Yum. Hated "losing" an hour (DST).
