With huge five-storey square Baroque houses sitting on the meandering Salzach River and a medieval castle towering above the city, strolling the beautiful narrow streets of Salzburg I could feel the city’s opulence and wealth. Salzburg’s culture and history come alive against this picturesque setting, and is only reinforced by being the birthplace Mozart. And the whole scene felt even more perfectly Austrian when I realized the Sound of Music was filmed in and around the area too!
“I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams.” Antoine De Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince
This past spring I took a road trip around Iceland with a good friend from London. We had such a great time driving part of the Ring Road and exploring the land of fire and ice by van. I finally got around to putting together this little video of our road trip – which just made me want to board the next plane back to Iceland!
