In order to maximize our time trekking through the alps (and maybe because we just cant deal with easy riding), we hopped a train from linz to salzburg. The european train system makes it very easy to make last minute travel plans.
The danube trail was great – it seemed like there was a castle or monastary peeking out at us around every bend in the river. Linz was a bit of a letdown – it seemed like a great city, but we had much difficulty locating the famous linzer torte ted told us about.
We have many tales to tell, but they’ll likely have to wait until we make it back to the states before they make it up here – we’re having too much fun to sit in front of a computer! (we’re only here now because we’re waiting for laundry to dry.)
