Stop over: Salzburg

Arriving at a simple yet homey B&B accommodation (shout out to Pension Jahn!) in Salzburg from a very long train ride from Fussen, Germany was such a delight, as I just want to drop dead in bed and get that much needed sleep. Good thing, the train that we have to catch the next day was not until 5pm. Meaning, I can go to sleep until late morning and still have time to tour the town.

We manage to have a quick tour of the city. From the old town, to the not-so-old commercial district; from Mozart’s birthplace to the towering uphill fortress; from garden parks to some of the sites from the movie “sound of music”, a whole day truly wasn’t enough.

    These photos help to remind me of the many places I went in and around SALZBURG. I have recommended it many times. I met an older man named Rudi and he and I did the famous Birdie Dance, which I later taught many students as well as adults.
    Your beautiful statue of the horse with wings is named Pegasus and I recall that. After traveling there and nearby locations, one can never forget Austria. Connie Smith Nanasy from Lakewood, Ca., USA

    1. Hi Connie! Salzburg really has alot to offer, from the beautiful sights and places to its wonderful and friendly people. I would definitely visit again and stay longer. by the way, thanks for the info on the “pegasus” (it is now edited), I stupidly forgot how its called. 😛

    Dear “Flipping Fish,” Are you a travel magazine or what? I just now saw the previous part with the memorable photos of Salzburg and of course, I loved seeing those places once again.
    I traveled the world for 25 years, visiting 64 countries and all the continents, but Antarctica (a little too freezing for me). My husband Emery and I have filled so many photo books that our house is a wee bit slanted! Good luck to you, wherever you might swim!
    Sincerely, Connie Nanasy
    PS Thank you for not publishing my e-mail address. I would not want that.
