almdudlers and fun

pictures of Austria (spring 2008)! I think my favorite place in Europe is either London or Austria (Salzburg). Austria has this lovely, home-y feeling that I just love. Maybe it's the delicious colors, architecture, trends, food, friendly people - everything's to love in Austria. :)

my pops and i

can you spot me?


i love the store signs. definitely a characteristic of austrian shops. :)


The Sound of Music Tour:

the tour bus :]

the gazebo!
i am 16, going on 17... :) (actually i'm 17...)
this moment was really embarrassing because my dad - he's a big clutz - couldn't balance himself and knocked his elbow onto the glass wall. "CLANG" everyone stared . i'm surprised the glass didn't break. phew.

i like this picture. :)
this is the park where they sing "do re mi!"

st. petersburg church: where the nun marries the von trapp man. (i'm not so good with names...)


+_+

do you recognize this building from the sound of music??

the drink i'm holding is not what you think. ;) it's called "almdudler:" an austrian soda which tastes kinda like sprite. yum... :) the mountains in the background are the alps!

oh. and there are safaris in austria... yeaaa


my family and i went to a dinner where a quartet and opera singers played mozart pieces. it was so wonderful. and that was the best chicken i've ever had... this guy was the bass player, super tall!!!

mozart's home. can you believe he was born in this very building? the prodigy who wrote songs that stood and will stand the test of time. but he's actually still alive...


advertising chocolates! the economy's gotten pretty tough. ;D austrian chocolates are the best. i can just taste the real cocoa melt in my mouth with that delicious, lasting after taste...i want european chocolate.....

i met these guys on the street and we asked them how to get to this one place we couldn't find. they were so kind and trendy too! they kept giggling because i don't think they actually spoke english seriously to anyone. so they were like "goodbye!! hehehe *germannnadshtagasdustedistundast* *giggle* *more german* bye!!! *usthseinsdgh* *giggle*" i wonder if i will ever run into them again!

because of their guidance, i got to take this picture. :)

the architecture is just splendid, reminds me of an edible dollhouse.



now think about this for a second... I know right?!! but that's not the only headless man i've ever met..


a year later, i met headless man in London! he got pretty stylish over the year. :]

song of the moment -
Aladdin - A Whole New World (such a good sing a long song - i can only sing well to disney songs...)
She and Him - Over It Over Again (both are on my playlist)
zooey deschanel and joseph gordon-levitt are so cuteee

Awesome pictures! I love how you took a sound of music tour, that's so neat. My sister's best friend moved to Austria, and whenever she comes back to visit, she brings those Mozart balls chocolate with her! Austria seriously looks like a toy store with its candy like architecture! I love your pictures.

I love these! A complete tour of The Sound of Music, what a cool trip! Traveling with your family is such a great experience...we traveled a lot around the U.S. as a family when I was a kid. I love that you and your dad have so much fun together!
