The hills are alive with the sound of music ....

Some quick photos from a great weekend away. I cannot tell you how much I love Salzburg - it is such a beautiful city and I really cannot wait to go back. It was cold and rainy and snow at times and I still want to go back! May want to go back in late spring though with a chance of blue skies and no clouds hiding the beautiful mountains though.

The train journey from Switzerland to Salzburg was just over 6 hours - a long time to sit on your butt but I had some tv catch up to do so my iPhone got a work out.

Loved the Sound of Music tour too - it is of course very cheesy but lots of fun and great to see the sights from my all time fav movie.

The Weather

We have been having crazy weather here in Switzerland. Last Wednesday it was 27 degrees C and the sun was shining, fast forward just over 7 days and it is cold and you can see snow on top of the mountains. It is so cold today that the kids wore their winter coats and when you breath in the air you can feel how cold it is. Driving home from a friends this afternoon at 5.30pm and it was 5 degrees C.

I am heading out for the weekend - heading to Salzburg. Most might think of Salzburg and Mozart but not me. For me Salzburg is "the hills are alive with the sound of music"! This has been my the top of my list of places i want to visit here in Europe and after 8 1/2 years i am finally getting there!

London Baby!

Last weekend I was lucky enough to be able to head to London for three nights. Back in Australia it was my 10 year high school reunion and i would of loved to of gone - but hey cant have it all. So Rolf suggested i head to London instead. I have a couple of friends from high school living over there. I had a lovely and relaxing weekend!

Friday night Clare, Peta and I had dinner out at a great Thai place (and it just so happens that i had been there before with other friends last london visit!) We then went to see Grease the musical - was a little cheesy but still really enjoyed it!

Saturday was spent shopping. We then had a nice pub meal to finish off the day. My first visit to a real english pub.

Sunday was just an amazing day weather wise. Who knew London got such nice weather ;). Clare and I went for a walk down regent street while waiting to meet Peta and Bec for brunch. The sun was shining, it wasnt too hot or too cold. Perfect.

We then decided we didnt like where we had plans to go for brunch so out came the A-Z ( a bible for anyone living in London) and the blackberry and we found a new place.
After brunch, which was just amazing - banana and peacan filled french toast - YUM YUM YUM - we went for a walk in Regent Park (i think thats the name)

It was such a nice weekend, and so nice to be able to catch up with my friends.
