So, the Sound of Music Tour. I wasn't able to twirl on a mountain. I know how disappointed this makes many of you
Mozart was also from Salzburg. We saw the house where he was born in old town. You can pretty much get anything you want with Mozart's face on it!
Back to our super sweet accommodations. We stayed at the four star NH Hoteles (only reason they weren't 5 stars is b/c they don't have bus parking). They run a chain of hotels in Europe and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone travelling here. They are based out of Spain. Air Conditioning!!! It was very modern and nice. Our bus left at 1 a.m. I was so excited about the trip that I didn't sleep the entire time. When we hit Salzburg, we hit the ground running. By the time the tour and lunch were over, it was 3 pm and I'd been up for 28 hours (still wasn't used to the time change before I left). I was exhausted. I crashed in the room about 4 pm and woke up in time for our next trip. So, no report on Salzburg nightlife. My roommate (Megan) was an ESL teacher from Portland, OR. She is here visiting her college roommate that is a nurse here. We compared teacher war stories. She was great! She told me that everyone was reading Harry Potter at the bars (it was released at 8 pm their time). Also, there is a t.v. channel in Salzburg with The Sound of Music showing 24 hours a day.
I miss you guys!!
