June 30, 2006


Day 9
Friday, June 30, 2006
Salzburg, Austria

We didn’t sleep very good last night as our hotel room was too hot.  Opening the window to let the night air in helped to make the room a little cooler (although we still needed a fan).  However, we still couldn’t sleep because we heard all of the road noise since our room faced a busy street.  As soon as we could, we switched rooms for one that overlooked a grassy area instead of a street.  Hopefully, we’ll sleep better tonight.

It rained most of the day, so we decided to drive to Berchtesgaden to check things out.  We found the Salt Mine and Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest.  We’ll go back tomorrow to tour these sights when the weather is better.

Tonight we have tickets to see the Sound of Salzburg Dinner Show.  Music will include the best songs from the Sound of Music; songs and dances depicting the true story of the Trapp family; a medley of well known Salzburg operettas; and Mozart’s classical tunes in historical costumes.  It should be fun.
