So up with the dawn chorus or so it felt. We had to catch a bus from the nearby town of Strobl to go into Salzburg and it took almost an hour it could have been longer but Mr T(aka Roy Cropper) kept us and the bus driver on track.

However, Austrians typically paint the house that color because the royal family was fond of it (back in the day!). The famous gazebo(?) is also there and I sang 16 going on 17 there... Just kidding. They don't allow visitors to enter it anymore because an 80 year old woman felt 17 again and danced to the music and then broke her leg. I bet she was American! Our next destination was ...
