Salzburg, the Land of Mozart and 'The Sound of Music'

Yesterday we spent the entire day in Salzburg. Look at that blue sky! It was gorgeous until about 6 pm and then it started raining. And hasn't properly stopped since. The Mirabell gardens above featured along side Julie Andrews and her charges singing Doe a Deer. There were people everywhere. The city was decked out for visitors. The Austrian prices are very reasonable. We eat happily here for the same price back in Granollers. There were many churches and I was tired by the end with all of the dramatic art work. Today we are driving, in the rain, towards Melk. We did our washing this morning, took our time over breakfast and waited for a 5 minute dry spell to take down the tent. The lakes here were beautiful but it's time to move on.
