We visited Austria many times, spending most of our time in Salzburg. One trip was a family trip, and we tried to catch as many of the Sound of Music sights as we could. Another trip was to see Tyler perform in the AMIS honor orchestra. Tera and girls stopped in Vienna during their European road trip. Finally, Tera took me me on a surprise birthday trip to Salzburg with our good friends the Turners.
#1 - Overall opulence and sumptuousness of the Vienna Palaces
#2 - Seeing Yo-yo Ma perform solo cello Bach Suites during the Salzburg Music Festival - All alone on the stage, lone man and his cello, he needed no accompaniment.
#3 - Salt Mines under Salzburg - included a surprisingly fun wooden slides that we all slid down together in a train of adults
#4 - Singing Do-Re-Mi on the steps of the manicured park where Maria sang with the von Trapp children.
