On the second last day, we drove over to Salzburg from where we were staying in Germany, which only took about half an hour since it was so close. We spent the entire day walking around and taking photos of the touristy landmarks, which was made more exhausting by the boiling hot weather. It was around 30 °C during the day, and the sun was shining right on top of us for the entire day as well, so I very glad I brought my giant sun hat with me. But even that didn't stop me from being slick with sweat by the end of the day. Despite from my sweatiness, I thoroughly enjoyed our day in Salzburg. It was such a lovely and clean city, and all the buildings were tumblr-esque pastel coloured. (I'm not usually this vain.)

 WED 22.06

 Salzburg, Austria

 Mirabellplatz

First stop was the Mirabellplatz. I would have taken a photo of the entire garden, but I was too busy trying to find shaded areas to walk under, because it was getting so damn hot that I felt like I was melting.

 Mozart's Residence + Birthplace


Mozart's birthplace was so hard to find because it was just in the middle of a narrow street, and there were loads of shops and tourists around so there wasn't a distinctive crowd around our designated landmark. We didn't go inside either of those places because we wanted to go around all the tourist spots since we only had a day in Salzburg.

 Domplatz


ngl I was so glad we went into the cathedral on Domplatz, because it was so cool (temperature-wise) in there and I was practically melting out in the open. I'm definitely going to hell for using a religious institute for my selfish purposes.

 Getreidegasse


We walked along the famous shopping lane, Getreidegasse, and did more photo-taking than shopping. There were so many little passageways off of the main lane, where shop windows and cafes were tucked away in, that I was surprised that we didn't get completely lost whilst wandering around. We also found the original shop that sold the infamous Mozartkugeln chocolate, and bought some very overpriced chocolates to bring back. (Seriously, they were 1.20 euros for one piece.)

 Tomaselli Cafe


For lunch/afternoon tea, we stopped off at Cafe Tomaselli, which was just off of Domplatz, and chose a seat on the balcony upstairs. We ordered drinks first, then a waitress came around with all the desserts on a platter so you can chose and pay for the food on the spot. I had a chocolate cake and an iced latte, which was very good but verrrrry fattening. The iced coffee was half coffee, a third ice cream, and a third cream. It was more than enough to satisfy my sweet tooth, but if I were to have that on a regular basis, I would become morbidly obese very quickly.

 Hohensalzburg Castle


It was quite a steep hike up to the castle, which didn't really go well with the scorching hot sun and my already sweaty body. We only got to the castle by the late afternoon, so I just went up there by myself to quickly take some photos. Most of the photos are just views from the top of the castle, and I only have a few of the ones of the inside of the castle. The inside was a lot bigger than I'd imagined, there were a lot of outdoor cafes to sit and relax in, and a few museums that you can go into. It would have taken a good half day if you were to go around everywhere and grab something to eat there, but I only had like 15 minutes, so I was trying not to get lost whilst taking quick snaps of everywhere.

Salzburg was such a lovely city, and I would love to go back some time. Although by the end of the day, I was very glad to go back to the our air conditioned hotel room and have a shower to wash off all that sweat.
