we arrived in salzburg early the next morning and had NO idea what to do first. because we only had the day we didn't know if we should do a bus tour or just wing it by foot. after looking at some brochures in the train station, the bus tours didn't really appeal to us (except the "sound of music" tour! but we just couldn't fit it in, bummer!) so we decided to venture out on foot and see where it would bring us. and boy oh boy, we did not regret our decision. sometimes having no itinerary is THE BEST way to travel!

isn't salzburg beautiful? and those views from the castle? amaze. this city has some of the most gorgeous scenery i've ever laid eyes on. i was a little nervous on the train ride that we didn't have any idea what we were going to see, eat, do, etc. but we just went with the flow and it ended up being one of the best days of travel i've ever had. this is one city that i would love to visit again.
is spontaneous traveling your kind of thing?
or do you prefer an itinerary?
next stop on my euro-trip: frankfurt, germany!
