Where I stayed
Gran Ma Ma's
Was fantastic to be in Europe, with the crisp fresh air, spending the wallet-destroying Euro's, and trying to involve Ann in the purely German conversations.
Lots of planning has been made for the next leg of our trip, which is evolving and adapting rapidly, and I doubt will be all that similar to first thought. All part of the fun of travelling without any organisation or money!
Salzburg - A beautiful city, and the largest retirement village in the world. Whilst we did come to love the quirks of this sleepy little town, it is one that can be discovered in days, rather than weeks. Spending time with my Oma, and being there for her 80th was very special and we mostly enjoyed her mothering. The biggest highlight of Salzburg is trekking the Monchsberg and being rewarded by a beer at the Augustiner, an amazing old brewery with great beer, massive halls, and allows you to bring in your own food and supplies. This town revolves around Mozart, and you can get anything you want here with his face on it. Bags, Shirts, Posters, there's museums, his birth house, his living house, his death house and of course the chocolates (Mozart Kugeln).
