Salzburg and Hallstatt

We spend the morning checking out new areas of Salzburg, such as the fortress which offered great views of the city.  And Ashley and Zoe decided to live like a local and have a city bike ride.

And then we got on a bus and headed to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hallstatt. While in Australia I met a German living in Austria, who suggested that Hallstatt was the place to go. I had completely forgotten that I had studied the history of Hallstatt as an early Celtic settlement back in University, so I was determined to make it here while in Austria.  And it was amazing.  Stunning views, old buildings, it was one of my favourite spots.
