Salzburg

In a way, perhaps the lemon of an SOM tour was a blessing. We ended the tour late in the afternoon and by then, most of the sights and shops were either closed or closing. From Mozartplatz, we decided to take the long slow walk back to our hotel on the newer side of Salzburg, across the river.

What can I say, the streets were quiet, traffic was light, there seemed to be fewer peole around (where did they all go?) the light was golden, the sky still blue and just like this, Salzburg took on a romantic glow. From here on, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

Loved the iron guild signs of the various shops that line this expensive shopping street. We spotted a few familiar favourites:

Zara!

Classiest McDonalds' sign ever. Even the golden arches have to tone down in posh and elegant Getreidegasse. And Ronald is nowhere to be seen!

Beautiful, traditional and very expensive!

From China to Italy to Austria: locked in love. But what happens if you ever fall out of love? Best not to throw away the key.
