Finally- a picture of the view and our accommodations. Let’s be perfectly clear about this- Salzburg is absolutely NO sunnier than our lovely Missoula, MT in the winter. In fact, it appears to be more rainy. I’ll get over it. “No Prub-lehm” as they say here…
There is a Gondola to the top, apparently you can ski down, when the snow is good. How cool is THAT!
However, up until this time, we have had mostly rain- Here, Eliot mastering the art of puddle jumping.
Just snapshot of our accommodations- It is an old farm house converted into a B &B, they allowed us to rent the whole darn thing since it is not the touristy season. Besides the enchanting aroma of goat manure as you enter…it is more spacious than we had imagined. We are 5 km from town and directly on the bus route. It is truly lovely.
Wednesday proved to be a bit more snowy.
It is not JUST a B&B, it is der Bauernof. No, not a microbrewery, but a BARN. We are greeted by a dozen chickens and 2 geese nearly every time we enter/exit.
and this is our view to the south…

More snow came today, and more in the forecast, yet the temps will stay mild. Kim had no energy to navigate the town today, so we went for a walk to the local butcher shop. It ended up being a lovely little cafe/bakery/deli that happen to sell every type of meat imaginable. Kim was pretty proud of herself for coming home with so many goodies from a place that spoke no English.
I may have lost all but the grandparents by now, so I will end with this evenings dinner- except for yesterday evening when we found an INCREDIBLE Indian restaurant (their English seemed as good as their German)…we have managed to eat most of our meals at home. Although we are fully embracing the salami-culture….we may try to lighten up a bit in the future. Tonight, homemade chicken soup with some german-vegetable-filled-pasta-thingy. And, more wine.
