Austria: Salzburg: Mozart's Home and Delicious Chocolate

August 27, 2014

rain 58 °F

  • ****Sorry guys, we are sad to report that our back up hard drive crashed when we came back to Orlando in Sept/October and have lost a lot of photos from the rest of Germany, as well as Dubai and Nepal so we are posting any of the photos that we could recover from our iPhone and/or GoPro :) *****

Ruby and I have a saying at it seems to be true in Germany…”we bring the rain”. What a wet and rainy European summer we’ve been having. It also seems that all of Germany is under construction right now and every place we drive has BAD traffic!!! Apparently we learned that summer is when they do all their public works projects. . .

Despite all that we made it to Salzburg after a two hour drive from Munich. It’s a very walkable city on the Salzach river. It’s beautiful with gorgeous views of a castle overlooking the city (so sad we lost our photos that we would otherwise share!)

The cute aldstadt (old town) is where you can find Mozart’s home and lots of delicious chocolates. You can hear classical music playing all over the city and the sound of horse drawn carriages is everywhere. Just across the river is a flower garden fit for a king and we even spotted a unicorn…no it was only Ruby! :)

I also need to apologize to our friend Kim Fields Shah aka my dentist for eating a Sacher Torte—so sweet that I think I have a new cavity!
