Tyrol Region in Austria

I loved this little town. We stayed in a little mom and pop type of hotel and went to a farmers house to try some home made cheeses and jam....there was also homemade liquor but Anthony didn't get to taste that, but we heard it was delicious. It was so nice to go to this region because we were finally out of the city and everything was so amazingly green and the alps were surrounding us. We loved Austria!!!!

This is our hotel with the church in the back ground......the bells rang at about 5 am and woke us up.....not fun on around day 15 when we finally were able to sleep in.

Zugspitze.....Garmisch, Germany

This was the highest point in Germany. We rode a tram up to the top (which made me kind of sick) and on the top on a clear day you can see Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Unfortunately the day we went it was really cloudy and cold. But it sure was fun to see. So, we rode a tram up the mountain and on the way down we took a train which went straight down the mountain, we got out half way and hiked the rest of the way down. It was so much fun hiking in the Alps and the view was amazing...super cloudy and cold on top, half way down it was sunny and a little bit warmer and once we reached the bottom by the lake it was really hot. It was a very amazing day!!!

Salzburg, Austria

Salzburg is famous for the Sound of Music movie. This is one of the prettiest places. Sorry for taking so long to put another post up from our trip I've been a little busy to say the least.

Right after our tour the weather took a turn for the worst and started to down pour...good thing we found cover, so we could just enjoy the view.

Anthony and his GIANT chocolate covered pretzel and yes he ate it ALL!!!! Okay I had a little bit and it was mighty yummy.
