For a while there have been rumors of a wanderlust gene. Apparently some people have a sense of travel and adventure in their DNA. It is quit possible that my family has this gene. Last January my cousin took part in a semester at sea. She traveled from the West coast to Hawaii, all around Asia, Africa, and concluded her journey in Europe this April. While she visited some last minute countries in Europe, M and I decided to join her in Salzburg.
We arrived in Salzburg late in the afternoon, met my cousin and checked into our hotel. I had visited Salzburg while studying abroad years ago but did not visit for long. Unsure about what the city had to offered, we wondered around looking for the city center.
While heading towards the downtown we stumbled upon a beautiful garden. Walking around, we realized it was the “Do Re Me” garden from the Sound of Music! Which immediately made it more exciting. The three of us reenacted the movie, skipping around and singing in our play clothes…just kidding. We worked up an appetite which was satisfied by the best German food and beers.
