Salzburg, Austria
March 25, 2005

Pros: Beautiful snow capped mountains
Cons: None

Today we arrived in Salzburg. The train ride from Villach to Salzburg was amazing. The snow capped Alps were beautiful. The train was going real slow as we crawled up the mountains. On the train we passed several ski resort towns that were open for business with people skiing. It is quite a change in weather from two days ago when it was 70 degrees and sunny to now being in the mountains with snow. It seems as though Austria is more efficient and upkept better than Italy and France. Salzburg is beatiful. There is a castle perched atop the mountain here that seems like it is out of a fairytale. Today is the first day of bad weather we have incurred. Salzburg is really cool though as it is surrounded by mountains and the clouds just appear to roll off them. However, it is a shame that is is so cloudy because the pictures do not do it justice and you can barely see the snow covered Alps. Anywas....
