I remember my friend Jenner saying that she was underwhelmed by Vienna but I truly can’t see why…

The new transit system is flawless. We parked our van at the terminal of Vienna’s northern suburb and zoomed to the city centre in under 15 minutes.

Old means of transportation are still used to this day.

Some buildings are very ancient yet well maintained and luxurious.

Some buildings are extremely contemporary.

I give the place a 9 out of 10.

More Salzburg castle.

The fee to enter the castle was a little too steep in my opinion but at least we got a free funicular ride on the way down.

Sound of Music truck stop.

I’m pretty confident that you’ve seen the movie The Sound of Music before, I mean the darn thing plays 3 times a day on TV  around Christmas time. As we left Salzburg heading towards Vienna, we stopped that a truck stop close to the lake towns where Miss Judy Dench herself sang her heart out while frolicking one of these hills. Holy crap, what a magnificent place.
