We have been back from our Austria/Germany trip for a few days now and I’ve been meaning to post about it!
We really had such a good time. Salzburg (Austria) was beautiful! There were lush countryside was around us and the alps in the distance. It was stunning.
The only downside of our trip was the heat. Oh my gosh….it was so hot! The temperature was around 95/96 the days we were there, and we were outside in it ALL DAY LONG! It would have been a bit better if there was air conditioning in Salzburg, but unfortunately there wasn’t. No restaurant, shop, store, or even our hotel. No AC…anywhere. We took about 2 cold showers a day to keep from melting, and we would splash in all the fountains…..and eat gelato!
We went to a great Gelato cafe and got some crazy desserts!
Mirabell garden was right around the corner from our hotel. It was GORGEOUS. AND—some scenes from The Sound of Music were taped there!!!!!
Some scenes when they are singing “Do Ri Me” and walking up steps and running around a garden……yep, I was there. It looks exactly the same as it did back during the taping.
After we left the garden we came home and I watched at least 40 videos of The Sound of Music (via youtube) and was so excited because we had JUST been to the same spots where they were singing!!! It was much more exciting for me than it was for Seth.
On our last night in Austria we went to an incredible restaurant called Die Weisse. It was a big brewery with very authentic Austrian food.
I got spinach dumplings in gorgonzola sauce with a salad, and Seth got pickled beef with onions and rye bread.
Since we were at a brewery Seth had to get a beer.
