I Must Have Done Something Good

Day 5: Salzkammergut Mountains and Lakes Region Day Excursion

There really are no words to express the beauty of the Salzkammergut mountains and lakes region of Austria.

We had an all day mini-bus tour today with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide named Marcus from Magic Salzburg Tours who took us to Lake Fuschl, St. Wolfgang for a boat ride across the lake, St. Gilgen and to Bad Ischl for some famous and fabulous Zauner pastries and a tour of the private summer residence of Emperor Franz Josef and Empress Elisabeth.

Hundreds of photos were taken, but the wireless at the hotel tonight isn't strong enough to upload them. I managed to get one image uploaded. This is St. Wolfgang Lake and the area where we spent most of our day. It was like a dream. No place could be more romantic (even with kids) to spend a 15th Wedding Anniversary than here. Feeling very fortunate today.
