Too misty for a good photo, beautiful view on Sound of Music tour – which was a blast. Mom won a free beer for answering a trivia question but never received it

In the distance is the wall that Maria walked along as she sang her Confidence song in the Sound of Music, and the trees are the same trees that the children played in as their father drove by, dubbing them “local urchins”

Near the cathedral, we got crisp apple strudel here with vanilla rum sauce to get in the spirit of the Sound of Music. These are a few of my favorite things!

The “main drag,” as Mom would call it, in Salzburg. These signs originally signified the purpose of the shop to people when literacy was uncommon

Coolest graveyard EVER – Petersfriedhof, or St. Peter’s Cemetery and Catacombs. Apparently the actual Von Trap family hid from the Nazis here

Hotel where we awakened the owner at 4:00 a.m. our first day when we arrived on the early early train. We stayed here for the night, full of guilt. They had yogurt, berries, herring, salmon, eggs, and more for breakfast…all of our places had REALLY good breakfasts

A bench full of rocks, there is nothing better to make us think of Mitch
