We all piled out of the motel room with our 13 big luggage bags and our 13 small bags and walked to the tram. one of the biggest thrills of the day was trying to get all our luggage onto the tram before it left. We did this twice with sucess. TEAM WORK!
We then walked down to collect our hire cars we sounded like a heard of cattle walking up the foot path dragging our bags behind us. When we collected our bags the next challenge was to fit alll our luggage in the back of the car. This was a little hard due to Donnas bag weighing 25 kg and tessa's 22 kg. our limit was 20kg each luckly we weighed in as a group.
When we all loaded into our VW transporters the next challenge of the day was to see who could drive on the wrong side of the road and who could remember how to drive a mannual. Mr Flowers had a lot of trouble with this as we stalled at nearly every second set of traffic lights, Mrs Flowers then lead the way with the women in the front seat.
We stopped half way for lunch at a road side eatery which was located on the Auto Bahn. This highway has no speed limit so you could just image all the rev heads and how fast some were travelling. You have never seen so much food in all your life, all fresh and all in German so hard to no what you are actually eating. Exquisite deserts!!!
The closer we got to Salzburg the colder it got and the more snow we could see on the mountain tops ahead of us. All the oldies think that the scenery is beautiful, just like on the post cards. Along the way the only sign of stock was a fake cow on a hill and a small herd of deer. All paddocks are lovely and green unlike home, there are no burs or weeds and the best thing about the outdoors here is that there are no FLY'S!!!!
When finally arriving at Salzburg we checked into our accomodation at the Jfgh Youth hostel we settled in and went down for dinner. Sausages and chips!!!!!
Everyone having a good time experiencing different foods and cultural aspects, bet you all wish you were here with us.
