Hallstatt, Austria

great-group-shot

Yesterday, we rented a car in Salzburg and headed off into the mountains.  Our destination was Hallstatt, a spectacular small village surrounded by an equally beautiful lake and towering mountains.  As you can see, we were not disappointed.

After a lunch of Schnitzel and other Austrian specialities, we continued on to Berchtesgaden, checked out Hitler’s “Eagles Nest” from a distance, and then headed back.

I GET A PASS ON THIS ONE!

Yes Deb, I agree rule number one “keep Debbie warm” has technically been violated.  However, I believe that if you read the fine print there is a clause that basically says “unless one of her children is traveling with her and wants to go on a holiday tour of Switzerland and Austria”.

So, in this case, if anyone is to blame it would be Patrick!!
