The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Stacy Reenacting The Sound of Music

What a title! 
But yes, it's true. Brendan was a good sport and went with me on The Sound of Music tour. I sang all the songs and reenacted all my favorite moments! 

16 going on 17 

Liesel's first kiss: 
The Hills Are Alive...

The patio and lake used in the movie (they used a different house). 


Wedding chapel 

The abbey 
How do you solve a problem like Maria ? 

Forgot to take a picture of the I have confidence street, drats! 

The tour was 4 hours, so we drove in the countryside and learned all about the real Von Trapps, movie trivia, and lots of singing. On our tour, people from Korea, Japan, India, USA...Austrians don't care much about the movie (they have their own version) but everyone else does it seems! 

Also on Saturday...
We visited the Dom Museum and saw their cabinet of curiosities (the main attraction)! We saw the archbishop's quarters and we learned about monks. We saw little wax paintings and all sorts of church treasures. No photos allowed :( 

We visited the dwarf garden. These are statues of real people that entertained at mirabelle palace. An archbishop commissioned the statues, which were later ordered to be removed and destroyed, but they were saved and returned. 

It was a good last day in Salzburg! 

But Salzburg has been VERY hot...90 degrees. We are all very over the heat wave, which should hopefully subside with rain this afternoon in Vienna. 

Yesterday's update coming soon!
