Tauernradweg Day 0 – arrival

Eurotrip 2016 begins  🙂 

This time I’ll be traveling with various people in different places, so I’ll post about different parts of the trip separately. 

This day is the beginning of the Tauernradweg, a cycling path in Salzburg area, Austria. I will travel with my friend Yoni, with whom I have traveled both the Moselradweg and the Loire a Velo. 

Salzburg, today

The start was too complicated. I took the night flight from Tel Aviv to München  and waited for two hours for my pre scheduled bus to Salzburg. After the long wait I asked a local person to borrow his phone and call the bus company which informed me that the bus was rescheduled for 4 hours later! No less. I have scheduled a ride with another company and had breakfast at the airport,  and still need to handle a (hopefully) refund.

Finally I took the bus to Salzburg. On the way I met a very friendly local family, and we held the conversation entirely in German. I was very pleased and proud of myself for handling it 🙂

I got off the bus at 12:20, in Salzburg, and took an inner (city) bus to meet Yoni and his girlfriend Noam in Salzburg. We had lunch, and then Noam took the train to Vienna. 

After a short break/nap in the hotel, we went to walk  around Salzburg. I have been waiting to come back to Salzburg ever since I visited it seven years ago. And it’s still magical. We started with a great Eiskaffe!

After that, we took some time to walk in the narrow alleys of the old town of Salzburg. It was a relaxed walk, and we enjoyed the beauty of the city. Later on, we went to eat some Hamburgers… 

The picture speaks for itself 🙂

We then got back to the hotel. It was a great day after all, and now I am completely exhausted. I haven’t had a good night sleep and been wandering around all day. Tomorrow we’ll rent our bicycles and start the actual route. You’re invited to keep with us
