Hong Kong and Eastern Europe Day 9

September 2009

Day 9

After breakfast in our hotel, we headed off with our tour group (see, first group activity) for a walking orientation tour of the city. This included taking in the sites of the city hall, the catholic church, the Serbian Orthodox church with Bishops palace, Danube park and finishing off at the Petrovaradin Fortress with it's clock tower. After a refreshing drink overlooking the river and city we headed back into town to look through the "Fishers Market", although we were a bit late in the day for the hustle and bustle of it all.

We then decided to check out the Orthodox church. Not being church goers we decided to check it out on the basis of a tour guide who had earlier pointed out the differences between the insides of a Serbian Orthodox Church and the insides on a Catholic church, needless to say after the end of our time in Eastern Europe, we were definitely suffering from church fatigue!

We grabed gelato from one of the many shops selling them and then decided it was also time for lunch and grabed some pastries from a near by deli.

We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the people watching from a cafe square, before once again meeting up with our group for an afternoon of wine and honey tasting. Now I don't drink and DHs beverage of choice is beer so we were aprehensive about how much we would get out of this trip, but we had a great time tasting honey, learning about the wineries history and enjoying the beautiful weather.
