Swooning in Salzburg

Be prepared to hop on the next flight or train to Salzburg after viewing these pictures!

I headed to Salzburg this past Thursday and finally got to live out every childhood dream I’ve had since watching “The Sound of Music” on VHS so long ago :) Somehow, I also seem to be so extremely lucky and get the best weather when I travel. Salzburg continued this streak with gorgeous blue skies and a temperature around 50F (10C).

I plan on doing a few posts in the next week or two outlining suggestions for a day trip to Salzburg as well as my own Sound of Music tour (so you don’t have to pay like 30-40 Euros to go with a tour group!). However, I was just too excited with how my pictures turned out and wanted to share a few (plus I have an obsession with my new camera)!

I suggest you start planning your next trip to Salzburg!

After being bombed during World War II, the rebuilding finished in 1959.
