Where should I go in Salzburg?

Where should I go in Salzburg? It’s a question I asked a week before my trip. I received many answers ranging from “go to this club” to “eat Indian/Mexican food.” Seriously? I must have asked the wrong people because these answers were appalling. When it comes to travel, I have one rule that stands above the rest. Never go any place you can always go at home. Instead of writing about today’s events, I decided to sum up what to do in the city. Food…Continue Reading “Where should I go in Salzburg?”

Eggs and Chocolate Cake

I ate eggs and chocolate cake for breakfast. No, not mixed together. I went to Cafe Sacher and immediately knew I’d be overpaying for food from the look of the decor. Chandeliers, grandma’s wallpaper and marble tables. There was some information on the table bragging about their famous chocolate cake. A secret 188 year old Viennese recipe. I thought it might be trickery, but I’ve also bought into the fame of Cafe Du Monde’s beignets. That’s because they’re delicious. After finishing my overpriced ham and…Continue Reading “Eggs and Chocolate Cake”

Most places seemed to only serve coffee and pastries. I wanted…Continue Reading “I Decided to Try Something Else”

I Made It to Salzburg

Today I flew from Nashville > JFK > Düsseldorf > Salzburg. It was a long 17 hours, including layovers. I’m pretty sure I was the only non German speaking passenger on my flight to Germany and I nearly missed my last flight because they changed the gate without announcing it. The only reason I figured it out was because I looked up from my iPad to see the gate boarder had left and I was the only one there, other than these two European women….Continue Reading “I Made It to Salzburg”

Catching Up on the Last Four Years (Part 2)

  SCOTLAND: “I Love Scotch. Scotchy Scotch Scotch.” I actually do love scotch, so Scotland was an easy choice. However, I spent more time in museums and art galleries than anything else. The city also had its own art to offer. One of the art galleries, The Lighthouse, had a set of spiral stairs you could climb.  At the top was a beautiful view of the city. I only had one (technically two) mishaps with food. I walked into a cafe called Stereo, but didn’t realized…Continue Reading “Catching Up on the Last Four Years (Part 2)”
