Now I don’t want to get all emo on you but I was pretty excited about today. Salzburg, more particularly The Sound of Music, played a big part in my childhood. I loved that movie and like most Aussie kids I knew all of the words to every song and of course I loved Maria, thought Gretl was the cutest thing ever, felt sad when the Baron ignored the kids, hated that slapper The Baronness for trying to sabotage the love of the century and I know you already know this – I so wanted to be Liesl… (except the bit where she falls in love with a total asshat who almost gets her family caught. Talk about a dobber).
So you can imagine how important the SOM parts of my visit to Salzburg were to me. In the early trip planning stages I found the tour company I wanted to use for this day because all of the reviews were ~glowing~ about the Sound of Music experience with this tour guide… *yes we know you like good tour guides Lisa, shut up already…*
