After leaving Oktoberfest, we hopped a train to Austria, I was ready for some different food. But being that Salzburg isn’t too far from Munich ( a 2 hour train ride), I didn’t have high hopes. We arrived, unloaded at the hotel and asked the front desk about where to go for lunch. She directed us to the only place she knew that was open… an authentic German cuisine restaurant. We walked there and when arrived I looked up at it with defeated eyes.
Hubbs took pity on me and agreed to wonder around for another restaurant. After finding a few that were closed, we stumbled across a small place that served ITALIAN food & WINE! I’ve never been so happy!
I devoured this and thus began my love affair with Italian food… in Austria. Italian places were prevalent all around Austria. I don’t know why, but I wasn’t asking questions… just savoring 🙂
I was on a delightful white carb binge…. and I couldn’t be happier!
Not only was the food wonderful, the sights were beautiful in Salzburg. It is the home of The Sound of Music and the birth place of Mozart… and they are very proud of both of them (as they should be).
I think my favorite place was Salzburg, but I’m not sure if it had more to do with the incredible views and cute, historic city… or the fact that my stomach was finally happy again 🙂
Tomorrow I’ll sum up my most and least favorite parts of all the food, sights, activities, then next week I’ll be back to blogging as usual. Thank so much for indulging my fun of reliving my first trip to Europe!
When you travel… do you eat only the local cuisine? Or do you search out foods that you recognize?
