From Munich we went on to Salzburg, Austria. This was another place on my list of “places to visit” while living here in France. From the very first time I watched The Sound of Music, as a little girl, I have been smitten with Austria. I had never been except until last month! Another dream became reality! We left Munich in the afternoon and approached Salzburg just at sundown (It was only 1.5 hour drive). Some of the views from the road where incredible.
We couldn’t see Salzburg from the auto route because it is nestled in the foothills/hills of the mountains. But, I knew we had arrived when the Salzburg Fortress came into view!
We located our hotel room, ate at a little italian restaurant next to our hotel, settled in for the night and tried to sleep, despite my excitement for the next day!!!!
