during our first week in Munich, we made a side trip to Salzburg, the birth place of Mozart, as well the place where they filmed the Sound of Music.

we rented a car and took 3 of the DH colleges along. with me as the guide. haha, they're all at the mercy of my map navigating skillz/GPRS.

we managed to get there by late lunch. i made the DH take a small detour when we passed by another one of Bavaria many lakes.

Finally, Mozart's birth house. we didn't go in. as expected from any touristy location, full of tourists. :P

another romantic "by the bridge" picture

apparently they're still discoverying archeological important finds when they're renovating/reconstructing. same as when we were in Praque. that's the beauty of building over old foundations. it helps to preserve things very well.

the sunday market was in progress.

i grew up reading Enid Blyton so it was very exciting for me to see these babies. oh i eat them all the time, but we usually get them in their brown roasted shells already.

that's it for Salzburg. it's a small place and all the major sites can be covered on foot. i originally planned to see some other places but we ended up getting lost and felt it was safer to drive back to Munich. tt gets dark too early in autumn.

Fantastic pictures! Thanks for posting whilst travelling!

We've got those chesnut trees across the road and the squirrels go crazy in the autumn!
