Ahhh Roma!! Centre of the (old) universe, hehe. Well, my hotel wasn't too far from the train station and I didn't get badly lost trying to find it, so I was off to a good start :).  Having mastered the Metro train systems in Russia (cough cough), I was ... Read more >

Salzburg and Berchtesgaden

AUSTRIA | Thursday, 10 Jan 2008 | Views [762] | Comments [5]

One thing about arriving at a new place in the dark is you have no idea what the countryside looks like, so I was gobsmacked when I woke up to see towering snowy mountains in every direction! This is Salzburg - the place where everything is Mozart and ... Read more >
