Nearing the end …

I’ve been slack. Actually I haven’t been slack but I have been terrible at getting updates.  This is mostly due to my lack of access to internet and traveling a ridiculous amount.  Since my last post I have been in Bern, Montreau, Paris, Versailles, Brussels, Brugges, and now Amsterdam.  So basically I’ve been traveling my ass off.

Interlaken is awesome but Hang Gliding is better!

When I thought of Switzerland before I came here, I thought chocolate, watches and knives.  Now I think: extreme sports, mountains, fondue, chocolate, watches and knives. Well, and a few other things as well, but those are the big ones!

Munich – a break from Hostels was super!

A few days ago (I think, the days and weeks all start to run together when you are traveling and it is hard to know what happened when and where) I was in Munich, Germany. In Munich I got to stay with the German branch of the company I do part time work for: Elise. And let me tell you, I forgot how nice it is to not have to wear shower shoes or to have a room to myself. So delightful.

Austria … I like you so much I am going to come back

Austria, what can I say? 

The Mozart museum was boring.  Should have known.

The bus system is fabulous.  So easy to figure out where you are going and what bus to take.  The buses are even listed on the map.  I lived in Halifax for almost 5 years and I still barely know what bus to take when I want to get somewhere!

The Sound of Music is going to drive Salzburg tourism for years … and I love it!

So here I am in Salzburg with about 9 minutes of internet left.  Basically the few paragraphs I have time to write will be gushing about how wonderful Salzburg and Austria is and how much I love it here! So ridiculously wonderful!

In my time here, I have visited numerous sights filmed for the Sound of Music, climbed a mountain (well, taken a cable car but there was climbing once I got there), taken a boat ride (yes more boats!), and gotten wet due to trick fountains.  Oh and there was a brewery tour in there too.  

More snow on the mountains than I’ve seen since my first weekend in Scotland. My feet are still wet about 6 hours later. But the view was amazing.  I think we should have really major mountains in Nova Scotia.  Do you think the Cape Breton Highlands can grow?

I can’t even begin to fit in my Austrian wonder in! The only sad part was one of the two sights I really, really wanted is closed until the 10th so I just miss it. Tear! But that has not dampered my Salzburg love.  Plus I got to shop in the largest Amber store in Europe.  Fun!
