I'm Back and I even got Some Knitting Done
We got back yesterday and what an amazing trip it was. We hit Munich, then Salzburg (I recommend the "Sound of Music" bike tour it was awesome), then onto Hallstatt, then to a little town called Melk, then it was a boat trip along the Danube, and lastly we hit Vienna. Here are a few pictures of our trip to whet your appetite. I will post a link to our picture gallery site when we are finished up loading the photos.
Above - this is a shot of Salzburg from the castle that sits high above the city. I got the shot from the cannon window.
Does this look familiar? This is what was used for the back of the house in the 'Sound of Music'.
I think overall my favorite city was Salzburg.We had the nicest weather there and we got to see and do a lot. Munich, I am in love with and although this trip we kind of got rained out and it was a random holiday it was still good to be there. Hallstatt was beautiful, but there is not a lot to do there. Melk was a cute town with this gorgeous Abbey that sits high above the city. The Danube although referred to as the blue river, was not so blue due to lots and lots of rain, but it was a really nice way to see the country side on our way to Vienna. Vienna is beautiful with a ton to do and see. It was the last stop on our tour and we were all a little tired, but we made the most of it with lots of cakes, ice cream, and more desserts.
To the left - is the view from our window in Hallstatt of the lake. This is the beginning of my Sockapalooza pals socks. I've named them 'Red'.
To the right - Here are some sheep that we came upon on our little hike through the valley in Hallstatt.
Side Note: Please ignore the hair and clothes, we packed very lightly. LOL Here we are on the Danube and the progress made so far on my pal's socks.
