The easiest job in the world

Must be being in charge of promoting Salzburg to tourists. Alps, Wolfgang Amadeus, singing nuns - and a stunning old town packed with churches and topped with an impressive castle. It's possibly the all-round best long weekend destination we've been to in Europe - and I don't even particularly like The Sound of Music!

We lucked out with our visit, because not only was the weather awesome, there was also a festival on so many of the locals were out in leiderhosen and dirndels. It's kind of weird being in Europe and seeing people in traditional costume - normally what you'd see in say, Berlin, is variations on what you'd see in London, New York or Auckland. Jeans, t-shirts, skirts, etc. Watching grown men walking around in leather shorts is a bit odd.

Eins, zwei, drei ... flug!

And of course, it being Central Europe, the beer is awesome.

Cheers Lauren, for getting us to go!
