We continued on in a westerly direction, and I have to admit that I dozed off for a few miles. The van was quiet, and it looked almost surreal outside. We drove through quaint villages, beautiful countryside, past lakes and parks.
For the first time sinced I arrived, the sun suddenly came out. It only lasted for about fifteen minutes, but every second sure felt great.
We arrived in Salzburg about noon, did a quick guided tour, and were then set free until 4 pm. Off we went! The town is enchanting...quaint little shops, a castle, and cobblestone streets. Mozart was born and raised here, and parts of the Sound of Music were filmed here. Quite a combination. Today, there were also several Christmas markets already in business, with new ones setting up. Christmas trees were propped everywhere, and the streets were roped with lights and decorations.
There were lots of horses out, taking people for carriage rides.
Elaine, here's a "schneeball" for you! Remember those we ate in the car in Rothenburg??
The artist on the right makes these very cool hats!
Sorry, I got carried away with the photos here! Someone asked how many I've taken so far...that would be 900+ in three and a half days. Oh, well! It's what I do! Goodnight, all. See you tomorrow.
