Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines

Belogradchik Fortress
Location: Belogradchik, Bulgaria

When visiting a famous site like the Belogradchik Fortress in Bulgaria, it’s likely that you’ll encounter a mass of humanity. The bigger the crowd, the longer the lines. It’s one of the realities that we face when we travel to see the world.

Under the circumstances, as Rick Steves would say, it helps to be fanatically positive and militantly optimistic when dealing with inconveniences such as long lines. If anything, we can treat them as part of the experience.

Brandstetter Cafe
Location: Würzburg, Germany

It’s early morning in Würzburg. What’s a better way to start the day than to visit the popular Brandstetter Cafe? The staff still appear relaxed and friendly. More importantly, there’s less crowd giving you time to browse and select among the fresh baked goods on display.

After a light breakfast, you can take some time to explore the city on foot. It’s worth your while. You’ll be impressed by the determined efforts of its citizens (mostly women) to rebuild after 90% of the city was devastated by massive Allied bombing in World War II. As you walk around, you’ll find the buildings of historical importance were accurately and painstakingly reconstructed.
