From Prague, Czech Republic to Salzburg, Austria, I took the bus and walked to the apartment of my Couchsurfing hostess. On the way I stopped at the Gazebo in the style from the Sound of Music 🎵 movie. The Von Trapp family lived here and some scenes were shot in Salzburg. However, Tamara my hostess, assured me the Austrians have not seen the movie. Only the Americans and Chinese tourists know the story and the kitschy movie landmarks and souvenirs are for them. Thinking about the movie, it does not portray Austria’s finest hour.
As I had only one day in Salzburg, I tried to make the most of it.
