Day 2! We woke up in Neuschwanstein, Germany to beautiful skies and mountains and greenery that looked like a green velvet carpet. From here, we drove 3 hours Salzburg. Wow this must be THE cleanest European city!!! It is so tiny and cosy, but so POSH!!! People were dressed nice, service was nice, and EVERY SINGLE BUILDING looked like it had just been painted yesterday. It was a cosy little city. We started by visitinhtg the famous Mirabels Gardens where The Sound of Music was shot, and took a break in walking by attending a musical concert in the prettiest little chapel. After that, we walked into old town, through its narrow shopping streets, to Mozarts home. The best way to describe our day in Salzburg is: Small and white…clean and bright… you look happy to greet me! 😉
Today, we had BURGERs for dinner! Cheap yummy burgers with super delicious fried thinly sliced potato chips. After dinner, as we were walking back, I heard a sound that sounded like someone dropped a handful of marbles. And in 2 split seconds, it started raining hail. Tom and I quickly ran into the nearest bar, cos in the next 2 seconds, it started POURING hail. The size of GOLF BALLS. it was SO DANGEROUS. it could seriously hurt a human being! Apparently it was very sudden and very local, not something that can be easily forecasted. It was a bit of a scary experience.
And tonight, we slept at IBIS Budget. Have to say, staying slightly outside of town with budget hotels really was a good idea to save on cash for other things. All in all, I really liked Salzburg. It was ….simple. Tom was not impressed – but me, I couldn’t help admiring how CLEAN and BRIGHT the buildings were!!!
