Salzburg, Austria - Happy New Years 2014!

The Von Trapp family home

A quaint Austrian village on the lake.

The Church where Maria was married and became a VonTrapp

A town filled with marionettes.

Austria, Australia, potato, potah-toe.
Mom and I took off for Salzburg for an old school, cultural New Years Eve celebration (yes, I know it really isn't a party city).  We followed in the footsteps of such great luminaries as Mozart (even catching a concert of his music in one of the old castles) and Julie Andrews.  The hills are alive in Salzburg, Austria (and after a day of hiking through them, I am convinced this is more than just a song lyric).  And there is something for everyone.
