Flag of Austria  ,
Friday, September 18, 2009

Before we left for Salzburg we had to say goodbye to our Austrian hosts. What a great couple - even though we know very little about them. We got on a bus and went to Salzburg. Things went fairly smoothly getting our next accommodation. We were only staying one night so it didn't really matter where we stayed - as long as it was cheap. Found a good place and I am fairly confident it was run by a witch - but a nice witch. She wore all black, had black hair and black stockings. Her hair was a crazy mess and she smoked...a lot! I think she was drinking by 11am too. Anyway, nice lady that let us use her kitchen. Our room was pretty sweet too. We had a sink and a shower "cabin". It really was just a portable shower. It was plugged in and sitting on the carpet. So weird but really cool.

We spent the day wandering around Salzburg. Much smaller that we thought it would be. Very manageable to see in one day if you don't want to shop much or sit at cafes. The castle is beautiful that sits at the top of a cliff hovering over the city.  We saw the church where the Sound of Music filmed at.  We spent a lot of time sitting on the riverbank. And, its okay here to buy a liter of ice cream and eat it with plastic forks within 10 minutes - no one looks at you weird. Again, this city has lots of little allies and cobble-stone streets, fairly easy to get lost in. We only stayed one night and the next morning we spent time in one of the palace's gardens where we saw 4 different wedding parties - all in the same garden. But the true highlight of Salzburg was the shower cabin in our room. You can't beat that. This is a city for people on a slightly larger budget then Brian and I. But still worth the visit.
