Day One

We began our Alpine adventure in Salzburg, Austria. In addition to the beauty of the surrounding countryside, Salzburg is know for music - Mozart and the Von Trapp family. Due to our airline canceling all flights from Texas the morning we were scheduled to depart, we arrived Sunday afternoon, a day late. Although we were extremely

tired, we were determined to attend

the Mozart Dinner Concert that evening

as planned. 


Arrive a day or two before you're scheduled to begin your tour so you can rest and recover from jet lag, or in our case allow time for flight delays.

Monday we explored Hohensalzburg Fortress and wandered around Old Town Salzburg. The history in the fortress was so interesting, and the views of Salzburg were incredible. The Old Town area was filled with beautiful churches and grand architecture.

It Could Only Happen to Me!

After a long day of exploring, Leigh and I had a delicious dinner at a restaurant a few blocks from our hotel. As we settled in for the evening, I realized I didn’t have my purse. Luckily, I had put an Apple AirTag in it, so I checked the location and as I suspected it pointed to the restaurant. With my heart pounding out of my chest and repeating to myself "how could you have been so careless?" I rushed back to the restaurant. Much to my horror the purse wasn't there.  I checked the AirTag app again and saw that it was actually halfway between the hotel and the restaurant. I followed the signal and ended up at two huge garbage bins. I began the disgusting task of digging through loaves and loaves of day old bread, sawdust, twigs, trash, and untold millions of germs. No luck. I went back to the hotel to cancel my card, feeling frustrated that the AirTag led me to the wrong place. When I went to sit down in my room, I was shocked but thrilled to find my purse under a pile of clothes. Turns out, the AirTag only updated its location when I walked past the trash bins earlier. Leigh and I couldn't stop laughing at my crazy dumpster diving adventure. Lesson learned - AirTag updates can be a bit wonky, so don't go diving into trash bins without checking everywhere else first. And if you see a lady digging in a trash bin in Italy, cut her some slack!
