... Lonely Goatherd` scene in `The Sound of Music` perhaps? Which brings me to that famous film. You can book onto a four-hour tour which takes in the sights both in and around the city, but I would not contemplate asking David to accompany me. However, in passing we did see the horse fountain in Kapitel-platz which Maria crossed by bus on her way to stay with the von Trapps and walked through the cemetery with catacombs of St. Peter`s Abbey where the fight scene ...
... chocolate cake called Mohr Im Himd. We got back to the hostel around 9:30, I went and filled the bike up with petrol, packed it up and had a shower, and once again I find myself writing the blog quite late at night with an early morning on the cards tomorrow, but it's important to get it all done or I forget to write about so many interesting details.

... a few hours we walk back toward the town center and have an excellent meal at one of the many restaurants on the lake side. Dani takes his leave and heads back to Munich for work and studies, leaving us to return to the peaceful solitude of the condo.
