Gut Morgan von Salzburg

Left: This is the spread I had every morning - on the other table was yogurt and cereal...

Yes here I am. I did not know the wifi code until this morning...forgot to ask. Due to upcoming inclement weather many people have cancelled so I am in the main house with wifi. Lovely place and wonderful breakfast buffet.

The flight over here was good - was lucky enough to sit beside a gal who was originally from Salzburg. She came to Canada as a small child and goes back every she was able to give me tips on the city. One lowlight of the trip was accidentally fondling the fellow behind me's shoe clad foot...more on that later. It can only happen to me...

Train trip from Munich here was okay except that my bladder was ready to blow and there didn't seem to be anywhere for me to go to let it blow. Plus if there was there didn't seem to be anyone I could ask to watch my stuff.

Speaking of stuff...Eddie (my suitcase has been named for Eddie Windass from Coronation St as he is a pain in the ass too) has been a pain. Oh well once I hit Germany I will lose a bit of the weight and I realize I've got some English coins in there that weigh a bloody ton so might move them to my purse for the next travel day.

I was so exhausted when I got here I got a taxi after grabbing a croissant (forgive me...a Mozart croissant...not that it tasted much different) and made the new travelers mistake of going to bed at 4:30 p.m. but I just could not keep my eyes open any longer. Of course I was awake at 8:3 then again at midnight. I was cursing myself that I did not ask for the wifi code (which turned out to be self explanatory if I had had half a brain and been awake) so I could have blogged and facebooked the night away.

Anyway time to go exploring - I bought a Salzburg card yesterday so plan to explore Mozart's birthplace and home as well as as much as I can do before attending an advent concert at 4 p.m.

More later!

A walk along the coffin trail (and a couple of lakes) in the Lake District

While in the Lake District I wanted to do some light walking but not heavy duty hiking where I could easily get lost and my body not found ...
