Salzburg

Salzburg was everything the pictures and movies show with the bonus of actually being there. We stayed in a ski lodge just outside of town (6km) so a bus ride was our mode of transportation to and from Salzburg. Staying in the lodge in the off-season was excellent. We practically had the place to ourselves and the service was superb at their restaurant. We toured the Old Town with all the history and even saw their new police station (only 20 years old – because in a country with buildings hundreds of years in age, 20 is nothing). We relearned that Salzburg used to be its own country. With salt (hence the name of the city) as the life of the old world, the Salzburgers were able to control their destiny……that is until outsiders, like Napoleon, starting moving in. The weather presented rain on only one day and so we went shopping that day through all the little stores along the narrow streets. We visited the salt mines, countryside and ice caves to make for excellent trips. The people were really nice and most spoke enough English to help us when needed. Going back will be fun.

Excuse the lack of pictures but our broken camera did not capture images as well as a working one.
