I talked about Germany last time but I couldn't leave you hanging without talking about Austria - it was amazing! Such beautiful country and such kind people. We stopped by chance on the way home in Innsbruck for lunch. Who knew that we had stumbled across a city that had hosted the Olympics 2 times and that is rich with history.
Just leaving the car a man from a museum came over and gave the girls some heart balloons - they loved them and then we set up the camera to take a picture and some folks really wanted to be part of that.
Seeing this made me realize how fortunate I am to be where I am - it was perfect that in Austria, the country of music, we had the chance to listen to a violinist . . .
An intricately decorated building in the heart of the old part of town - next to the world famous Golden Roof Building . . .
We felt blessed to have just come across a town where so much history and beauty are all around - it was full of tourists!
There is the Golden Roof, it was built in the 1500's for Emperor Maximilian - I wonder if I asked really nice they would give me a small piece of the tile?
We ate at such a classic and wonderful restaurant, all of the outside tables were taken so we got to have the inside all to our self:)
I had always thought that Wiener Schnitzel was sausage with sauerkraut - actually it's more a breaded turkey steak. It is the most traditional Austrian meal served with fries and a salad that had no dressing
