Day 2: Salzburg, Austria

IMG_3062 (2)

On our second day of the trip, we woke up in Munich and drove to Salzburg.  We spent the day there, then drove that night to Vienna.  We loved Salzburg!  It was beautiful and full of history.  If we had a little more time, I would have like to go on a Sound of Music tour, but now I have an excuse to go back.

Ethan looking very European, sporting his new sunglasses.

See what I mean about the beauty that was there?  We just happened upon this garden while looking for the tourist office.  It was breathtaking.

After walking around a bit and asking a few people, we realized the tourist office was on the other side of the river.  While walking across the bridge, we noticed they have locks on the fence.  I’m sure there is some sort of meaning to it, I just don’t know what it is, but it was very interesting.

Once across the river, we still weren’t sure where we were going, but luckily we had some experts deciphering the map for us.

Here is our very own horse whisperer going to tame the horses for us…

It was a very hot day.  Our poor little dear doesn’t do well in the heat, but she was a trooper.

We took a fun little tram up to the fortress, which you might have noticed at the top of the hill in previous pictures.  It was such a beautiful view from up there.

I love their faces in this picture.  I think Tybee was about to do something she shouldn’t be doing.

Ethan is just a wee bit too big to be carried, but Grandpa has a hard time saying no.

Another Cathedral with a beautiful interior.

After a long day of walking around, Tybee still wouldn’t take a nap in her stroller.  We found a farmer’s market and bought some yummy strawberries.  This little girl inhaled them and then finally gave in to sleep.  So precious, with the strawberry juice and all.

As you can tell, these pictures are post-nap and our little one is still waking up.  Here, we are in the Abby from the Sound of Music.

This is in the courtyard, which reminds me of the part where the family is hiding there at the end.

A river cruise that was a bit too relaxing.  I found myself nodding off as well.

And a very scrumptious dinner to end the day with.  This was, by far, the best Schnitzel I have had since coming to Germany.  There were three different types and they were all delicious.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.


We LOVED Salzburg and I hope we have a chance to go back someday!
