Favourite Place: Salzburg
Best view: The Lake District while on The Sound of Music Tour.
Most Comfy Bed: Sacher Hotel in Vienna
Most interesting thing I learnt: About Jewish history in Berlin.
Best tour: The Sound of Music Tour.
And the piece of cake one afternoon for afternoon tea at Schloss Elmau.
Best experience : Exposing the girls to the beautiful music all over our trip. We have been to shows on our previous holidays but we have not given our children the opportunity to listen to a lot of classical music. The music we introduced them to this holiday was much more classical – opera, choral, ballet and orchestral.
Hardest part of our holiday: Not being as fit as usual due to my year of recovery and therefore becoming very tired and returning home with some injuries ( plantar fasciitis and a groin injury).
Best part of our holiday: Singing all day on The Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg.
I would like to finish with a lovely poem my friend Cass sent to me following our last European holiday:
“Home to laughter, home to rest,
Home to those that we love best,
Home to where there is none to hate,
Where no foes in anguish wait,
Where no jealous envious mind
Seeks with glee a fault to find.
Now the day is done and I
Turn to hear a welcoming cry.
Love is dancing at the door,
I am safe at home once more.”
Until next time
