Michaela here ... Brrrrrr.... We made it into historic Salzburg after only a 2 hour train trip from Munich. Immediately we were hit with a fresh blast of chilled air, still no snow, but it gave us an excuse to whip out the jumbo jackets. Welcome to Austria!

After about 4 hours there Peety was definitely starting to fry, so we began to walk back to the car to go back to the apartment.
