The hills were alive....

We took a day trip to Salzburg, Austria from Munich. From our AirBNB it took us about 3 hours to get there (with traffic), but only 2 hours to get home.

 

We took an afternoon ‘Sound of Music’ tour, which took us to many of the filming locations of the movie, but also around town and out to the Lake district! We didn't take one of the large tour buses, instead we were in a van with 2 other couples, so there were 8 people plus our tour guide. 

 Look familiar? This place is now a 5-star resort!

 Fun fact! Red Bull is an Austrian company. This is a picture of their headquarters.

Photos from the Lake District, and of the chapel that they filmed the wedding in for Sound of Music. They made the church look over twice as long in the film! Very different in person.

Our tour stopped at a small luge run outside of the Saltzburg Lake District. This was one of 'my favorite things' about the tour! We didn't see any 'Edelweiss,' but we would 'Climb Ev'ry Mountain' if we had time- it was beautiful, we must have done 'Something good' to have such great weather! 

We found the unicorns that flank the stairs where some of 'Do-Re-Mi' was filmed. I'm no longer 'Sixteen going on seventeen' but 'I have confidence' that if you visit Satlzburg you'll find it stunning.

'So long, farwell' Austria!
