The scenery around Salzburg is just stunning. And I know (now) that there is stunning scenery all around the world, and still whenever I see rocks & mountains & lakes... I'm in awe.
Yesterday I spent the day wandering up on Mönchsberg & along to the Festung Hohensalzburg (the big fortress above Salzburg). The colours of the trees were beautiful, & the sun shone on the snow-capped mountains in the distance - yes the sun shone!! It is literally the first time I've seen the sun in over two weeks, and oh what a difference it makes!
I went through the fortress, which was built many many years ago & added to over the centuries.
This morning I wandered upon Kapuzinerberg - the big hill over the river from the main part of Salzburg. More pretty views, trees, etc.
Random observation: Austrians are very law-abiding - even if it's the middle of the night & there is not a car in sight, they just won't cross the road when the red-man is showing.
