As fans of the classic 1965 film will readily tell you, the Sound of Music was inspired by the adventures of a real-life family. And just as in the musical, the von Trapps did flee Nazi-ruled Austria to escape service in the third reich.

But while the film depicts them trekking over the Alps to Switzerland, they actually escaped via Italy and London to the US. And feeling drawn to the high ground once more, they settled down to run an Austrian-style ski lodge in Vermont. The Trapp Family Lodge is still going strong, with the grandson of Maria and the captain now in charge. It boasts 2,400 acres of mountainous slopes and rooms for hundreds of guests.

Mybe somewhere you can enjoy "some of your favourite things"!
