Tom and I met in Munich, stayed in a hotel close to the bahnhof (train station- the one word I know and I learned it from my mom), and then headed out to Salzberg to spend a day and a night there.
|On the train.|
Tom immediately got us out and exploring the city. We hiked up to the fort on the hill above Salzberg, which was not okay since it was incredibly steep and kept going forever. I demanded that we ride the funicular down, and it was totally worth it, even if it was a little terrifying.

|I seriously love this man.|

We stopped by the house they used for the back of the Von Trapp house and the lake, and it was just as gorgeous in real life!
Then we drove over to see the house that was used for the front of the Von Trapp mansion, and got to see where the gazebo from the movie had been rebuilt! Sadly, they wouldn't let us take pictures inside, but at least we have a picture of us in front of it! Tom wouldn't dance with me, otherwise there would have been a whole photo shoot of me pretending I was Liesl, which I totally did in my head the whole morning anyway.
|Avenue from the "I have confidence" song!|
|This was a surreal moment.|
|The Von Trapp house!|
|Heaven on earth.|
|Awkward, but good shot from Tom!|
The tour ended at the gardens where Maria and the children filmed Do Re Mi, so of course we visited most of the scenes from the garden and the song! Who didn't want to be in that movie when they were a kid? Exactly.
|Pegasus fountain! No, I didn't run around it. I'd have fallen in, and that'd be cold!|
|The dwarf they pat on the head. Apparently I like this pose for exciting moments...|
|The covered walkway!|
|The bridge they run over.|
Next time: Munich, and lots about food.
