Had a fantastic breakfast & drove the 40 klm to Salzburg for the day. Temp has dropped to around 15 with light drizzle. Found parking in a pay station but could not understand what we had to do so just took a ticket, locked the car & hoped for the best. Walked across to the old town. Only really one main street with all old fashioned signs hanging from the front. Packed with people. Went for a walk then had to do the toilet stop a Macca's with everybody else. Getting over paying 50 cents each time you use the toilet. Even though Macca's gives you a receipt for 50 cents off a coffee. Then went for a buggy ride around the town which was interesting, quick pretzel for lunch then up to the castle. I would like to say that this is the last castle on the tour but I don't like my changes. Alice has hinted tonight of one more after this. Yipee. Like the churches. Travis & I discussed today how we don't go to any church, except weddings and the like, but travel 12000 klm & have to go into them & pay for the experience. Took a funicular, train type thing,up to the fortress. Looks all over the town. Some parts were built around 108AD. Looked around for a while, took photos for the slide night & came back down. Walked around the Sound of Music cemetery, those hills weren't alive, then went for a coffee & cake. Visited yet another Pandora shop on our travels. Alice got a very nice gift from our other favourite Canadian friend's on their visit to Australia in January, Diana & Rick, of a Pandora bracelet. So all trip has been looking for Pandora shops to complete it. Left the city in the drizzle & walked through more gardens, that apparently were used in the Sound of Music. Got back to the car within 15 minutes of the place closing. Back here for another dinner & a couple of German beers. I have only ever had the same meal at a restaurant two nights in a row once, at Necnock, on  boys golf weekend but here I've done it again. Very nice indeed.
Off to the salt mine tomorrow, literally.
Till then.
