The next part of our Girl's Adventure (see our Vienna stop here) was Salzburg, Austria! 

We just went for the afternoon/night to do something that I have been wanting to do ever since we moved here...The Sound of Music Tour!! I grew up watching Julie Andrews sing her heart out on those beautiful hills and when I found out lots of the movie was shot in Salzburg (not too far from Nuremberg)...I was so excited! And ellie and holli were just as excited so it worked out perfectly!

Stopped at some breath-taking sites! We were so mesmerized by God's beautiful creation.

There ya have it a short and sweet recap of a great afternoon! We had such a fun time on this tour and the little town of Salzburg is so cute! I would love to go back one day to stay the night and enjoy the quaint atmosphere.
