Now if you are still scratching your head trying to figure out why I chose this title, well just be a little patient and you will see why as I tell you a story of what happened on my first night in Salzburg.
The first thing that I did when I got to the hostel was to go to my dorm room and left my backpack in the locker. There were two Canadians sharing my dorm with me so it was straight downstairs for a beer at the bar. Then while we were enjoying our beers we then meet up with a group of three Americans. The Beer kept on flowing and the good times rolling. Then the two Canadians retired early, as they were on their way to Bad Gasten the next day. Now it was just me and the three Americans. We then got bored of the bar and decided to hit the town and see whats what. So we then left the hostel and made our way to the city centre. After visiting a few places we then chose to go to this Irish pub. It then became a joke with the four of us and we were laughing and thinking that we are in Austria and there is an Irish pub.
I was still wearing the same clothes that I had on the train when I left Munich, so I didn't think or consider what I was wearing as I walked inside. And I walked inside wearing a black top with the German badge on it and big, white, bold writing saying "Deutchland" on the front of it. The four of us were standing inside at the entrance and the people inside were giving us the most wierd looks. It was as though the four of us were aliens from a foreign planet. Automaticly the adrenilin started kicking in as I sensed nothing but trouble awaiting us. I then scaned the room, it was packed. Even if the other three backed me up the odds were against us.
We then carried on having beers and talking with the rest of the people in the pub, and the evening turned into one of my most memorable times in Europe.
The rest of the time in Salzburg seemed to fly by and I really enjoyed my time here.
