The Hills are Alive

On the third day of our whirlwind long weekend, we headed to Salzburg, Austria, which is famous for being both the city of the historical von Trapps and where the movie, the Sound of Music, was filmed. Naturally, I was all about going on the Sound of Music tour!

The tour is so fun, they load you on a bus and take you to six different locations where the movie was shot (two palaces, a garden, the church where they wed, the famous gazebo, and the convent where Maria lived). As you travel to each location your guide gives you interesting facts about the movie and the historical family. There is also a sing-along on the bus!

Being from Florida, I couldn’t get over the snow and how beautiful everything looked covered in it. Not to mention the views everywhere we went were absolutely stunning!

In addition to singing and frolicking in the snow, I also had the BEST apple strudel of my life! No idea where we were (it was the middle of nowhere), but it was incredible… I still dream about it. And of course, no Sound of Music tour would be complete without twirling in the hills (just wish we’d had clearer skies or maybe a drop of golden sun)!

So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu!
