A fantastic start to the day…nice weather and we have a day to explore what’s left of Salzburg.¬† We literally spend most of the day walking around and checking things out.¬† Here are a few of the pictures I took with my iphone.
So around 1pm, we decided to find a place for Rob to get his hair cut….when in Europe, one should get a Euro cut.¬† The hotel we were staying at recommended a place so we went there first.¬† The girl who cut Rob’s hair did an amazing job and she was lovely.
Now we have to go back to the hotel to get ready for our evening plans.¬† Before we left for Europe, I booked an evening performance of The Sound of Music at the Salzburger Marionettentheater.¬† When I was researching for things to do in Salzburg, I came across this place.¬† It looked amazing…like an evening going to the Opera….fancy!!¬† So I insisted that we dress up.¬† We took extra dress up clothes, ironed, etc…especially given the temperature in Salzburg, to put on fancy clothes was a bit of a task.¬† When we walked down to the theatre and were waiting to go inside…Rob took note of the other patrons of the show.¬† Apparently, we were the only ones that got the impression that is was a dress up affair.¬† Literally, everyone else in the audience….jeans, shorts, leopard print, t-shirts…and then there we were…in our sunday best.¬† CRAP!! I am SOOO sorry Mr. Thompson.¬† Not as awful for me, while I was clearly over dressed…I at least still had on short sleeves and a skirt.¬† Rob, however….dress shirt, pants, tie….I am SOOO sorry Rob.
The performance was very cool though.¬† Grateful it was in English, and there were a few parts to the story that are not in the movie…FYI.
After that…we walked back to the hotel, taking a detour to explore and enjoy the rest of the evening.¬† We walked through these beautiful gardens and then we stopped by a place for some beer before we retired to the hotel.¬† While sitting under the umbrellas drinking our beer…it started to rain.¬† While we were there, the rain, when it rained, was consistent…all of the sudden crazy downpour for 10 minutes, then clear up and be done.¬† Every time it rained, it was the same thing.¬† You just needed to find shelter for 10 -15 minutes, then you could carry on your way.
PS: This is a smart car
