Weekend in Salzy

..and it was a good one.

This weekend, I decided to stay in Salzburg since I'll be gone most weekends for a long while.

Thursday night. Karaoke. O'Malley's. Such a good time.

Friday. Erin and I woke up and decided we wanted to take a train to Werfen. We grabbed our friend Brenman and hopped on the train. We went and saw the largest ice caves in the world. Unfortunately, we weren't allowed to take any pictures once we were inside the caves, but I got some sweet shots on the way up!

When we looked at the view, the mountains straight ahead were Germany, the ones to the left were Italy, and we were in Austria of course. Three countries at once. Such a cool thought.

Here's some pictures I got off the web, just to give you an idea of what the caves looked like.

Alexander Von Mork was the man who explored these caves. He served in the military as well. He died when he was 27 years old. It really made me think..."Chels, what are you doing with your life?" He had time to brave the Alps, hang out in a giant ice cave, and also serve. I can't even do my laundry.

So, Saturday was a chill day in the city. During the evening, I was given an interesting tour by some of the local friends I've made. They help me with German, I help them with English. Perfect deal. And, I never thought I would have to explain who the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers were. I just kind of said...he's my husband.

Good times, good conversations, good people. I love Salzburg.

I'm off to Vienna on Thursday. Expect more soon!
