Alpine Postcards .....

Hello my friends
I know ..... it's been a while hasn't it?
I've been galavanting about and generally having lots of fun!

Mr Sweet & I ventured off on our own, to Austria
(its' the first time EVER that we've had a whole week away on our own!)
this stunning country has been on my wish list for ALWAYS & for EVER
and Oh. It did not disappoint!
Not. One. Bit.
Everywhere you look is just like a beautiful postcard
l'd love to show you .....

(apologies in advance ..... there are a million photos ahead of you!)

We stayed in a beautiful town called Schladming

View from V.high up in a cable car ..... sweaty palms! 

Apple strudel obvs.

Salzburg .....

We took a train
it was a proper adventure
the scenery rushing past the window was utterly breath taking.

Mirabell palace and gardens where Maria and the children sung 'Do-Re-Mi'

This fountain was in The Sound of Music too

We had delicious coffee and cake in Tomaselli where Mozart liked to dine no less!

..... and this was the view from where we sat ..... it takes my breath away.

Leopoldskron Palace from The sound of music ..... so beautiful

Just like a real gingerbread house

Holiday stitching (pattern by Lilipopo) ..... I've named her Leisel

We walked for miles and miles and miles and miles .....

Plum dumpling with vanilla sauce and poppy seeds ..... Mmmmmm

Picnic lunch in a wild flower meadow .....

Oh.Em.Gee. Look at that bridge?!
this photo brings back my panic.
We went for a V.long hike up a mountain ..... I was SO proud of myself
I faced a big fear, head on! 
It was mind over matter as I crossed this 50m suspension bridge almost as high as heaven
poor Mr. Sweet had the painful pleasure of holding my sweaty hand! 
but this lake was at the top ..... a pretty good reward I'd say


This sound is everywhere ..... 

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight ..... to beautiful Austria
 It's safe to say that I left a little piece of my heart there
I'll return one day to collect it I hope.

Thank you for reminiscing with me

Back soon!

BIG love
