Salzburg, Austria

Literally translated, Salzburg means salt fortress. Salzburg became a rich town during medieval times thanks to its salt mines and tax on trade that passed through its river. The river separates the city in half, with the “New Town” to the north and the “Old Town” to the south.
A special thanks to the Rick Steves Audio Europe™ Travel App and to Big Boy Travel for the interesting and informative tours!

Note: I apologize for the difference in brightness among my pictures. I visited once in October and later came back in December as I enjoyed the city so much and wanted to learn more.

  1. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions
    on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thank you

  2. Your style is very unique compared to other people I’ve read stuff from.
    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity,
    Guess I’ll just book mark this blog.

  3. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m completely confused ..

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    1. Hi Mezo, Thanks for your question! There are plenty of free website platforms out there like WordPress or Wix.com. Start with one of those and once you have the bones of your website done, consider moving to a platform with more options and a greater ability to innovate. Good luck!
