Unbelievable. We missed the bus again. Twice. But we saw it drive by- apparently it doesn't stop at the bus stop we were waiting at. Taxi! We've got important, exciting places to be... For example. RED BULL HEADQUARTERS. Yay!

We got to drink a Red Bull inside HQ, better known as: the volcano. What an unforgettable feeling! Ari feels like every person who has worked for Red Bull has heard of it and dreamed of visiting. Thanks to Jen (who, of course, works for RB) for putting us in contact with the right people to get us there! The location was unreal and the buildings were amazing! Becca even attempted the outside labyrinthy thing until she was under attack by numerous creepy creeps with 8 legs; she was doing ninja moves through the air to ward them off. Ditched that and headed to the quaint town of Fuschl. After wandering around for a little we hopped on the bus (we actually made it and found the right stop) and made our way "home".

Rainy day. Annie & Ari decided to do laundry in the actual washer/dryer. Big mistake. It took hours for the machine to stop and when it did we realized our clothes had simply been spinning around in dirty (very dirty) water sans soap, which was still in the insert. So... We took our clothes out of the pool of dirt water & washed them by hand, which we should've done in the first place.

As Annie said, "ugh, I just hate water here." (As our drain in the shower didn't work either & she had basically flooded the bathroom.)

Relaxing dinner in old town. Just lovely. Upon leaving Ari found it necessary to say "Adios" to the waitress... wrong language.

1. Austria is much less "English friendly" than Switzerland.
2. The door stopper in the bathroom looks like a giant malt ball.
3. German washing machines are quite difficult to work/understand/sometimes leave your clothes in a puddle of water. Ugh.
4. The pillows are HUGE here. It's awesome. And they fold the comforter in half in the bed to make it instead of tucking in the sides.
5. We finally ate eggs! We had all been missing them.
6. Salzburg is also a melting pot, just like the states :)
7. Last night in Austria... but not our last night in Austria.
