“The Hills are Alive….”

Our visit with Paul made Daryll’s BWM dreams come true and on our final weekend with him, Paul made my dreams of visiting Salzburg, Austria come true. Not only did I want to see the beautiful Alps but I wanted to wander the streets of the city where my favourite movie “The Sound of Music” was filmed.  I suspected that there would be hordes of tourists trying to invoke Maria while strolling through the city, like I secretly was, but  the presence of the famous musical was subtle and only the bike tours offered through the country side really focused specifically on the Sound of Music sites.

The Alps “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”

The fountain Maria and the von Trappe children danced around singing the “Do-Re-Mi” song.

The garden where Maria and Captin von Trapp dance face-to-face, Schloss Mirabell Gardens.

 The roads through the alps were every motorcyclist’s dream come true and next time we are there we vowed to be on two wheels!  Although riding in Paul’s luxurious BWM was a close second in great experiences.
