Tramway Tag

The kids have been seeing billboards all over the city for Tramway Tag, which sounded like just the activity for us (more specifically, Oliver). He was so excited about it that he ripped out an advertisement from the newspaper and grabbed a flyer at the train information center when we were already on the way…

Salzburg – Sound of Music

We had intended to take a Sound of Music bus tour the last day. We had to check out of our apartment early and had a late night train home. That meant a whole day of carrying all our backpacks, halberds, and souvenirs before getting to the train. At the last minute we decided it…
