The hills are alive...

with the Sound of Music.

sunny 28 °C

After a bit of a lazy morning, there was a small bit of bad excitement of me throwing my room card down under the door of the elevator down into the well – oops. Lucky my credit card didn’t follow it down.

We headed out late morning to a Bier Garden. Lunch and a pint were the order of the … lunch… After this headed back to the hostel to await our Sound of Music Tour! We visited the lake where they all fell in and climbed the trees. We also went to the rotunda in Schloss Hellbrun, the church where the captain and maria were married in Moonsee and saw a number of other sites associated with the Sound of Music. There were songs on the bus with some rather enthusiastic singing.

After the tour, which didn’t include Mirabell Schloss, Danielle and I decided we needed to re-enact a few scenes, including the posing like the statues, skipping up the garden archway, walking on the edge of the fountain, and jumping up the stairs like they do in ‘Do Re Me’. Also, due to our very disappointing lack of twirling on a hill we had to find a spot in Mirabell Schloss to do our twirling thing. I think everyone thought we were insane.

Lastly for today we headed to a beer garden in a Church. Or an ex-church really. It was pretty and sold beer by the 0.3, 0.5 or 1L. So a litre or two down and some food made this evening complete.
