Despite suitcase mishaps, Salzburg was wonderful. Not particularly snowy – in fact, warmer and less snowy than Britain – but stunningly beautiful nonetheless.
Long-suffering-boyfriend and I meant to watch the Sound of Music before going to Salzburg but ran out of time what with Christmas shopping and all. But it will probably be more fun to watch it this way round, having seen the sights and been there.
I went straight to my Grandma’s house for Christmas, where I found out that my mum is a big fan of the Sound of Music. She went to a very strict convent school in Edinburgh where things like going to the cinema weren’t usually allowed. But they made an exception for the Sound of Music because it’s the Nuns who foil the Nazis by nicking bits of their car engine, allowing the Von Trapps to escape. Funny old world, isn’t it?
