musings

salzburg is quaint and charming and small. dropped by for a day and a half and only saw outdoor sights but not the bigger museums -which is unfortunate because we love seeing works of the masters aside from all the architecture and food.

we did try catching some of the nearby shoot locations of robert wise’s the sound of music, starring julie andrews and christopher plummer.

we stumbled into the abbey from TSOM by accident and i knew right away it was the same one.

the famous mirabelle garden was still open but this section’s gate was already closed so we couldnt act out that finale of do-re-mi.

the escape from the nazis after the farewell performance at the cemetary was not shot here in st. patrick’s but definitely was the inspiration. they copied the gates and tombstones in a studio.

also checked out the other plazas and streets where they shot at. bought a music box playing eidelweiss for my aunt who’s a huge fan of the film.

got around mozartplatz and also visited where he was born and raised. apparently the music scene in salzburg was too small for mozart so he left for vienna and stay there.

so off we go to vienna!

i live to travel. it’s when im most excited and most calm. i love seeing new sights and recognizing cultural patterns similar to mine apart from learning what is also different. more often than not, we are the same so there is a balance and we as a people are not far removed from our 1st world brothers. this is the beauty of the human race. and i bask in it and distance myself from it at the same time. i will remain wanderlust.

on the train from salzburg to vienna now. mozart was born in salzburg and while he was a prodigy, his talents and works were more celebrated in vienna where the performing arts scene was exploding. i wonder what jose rizal and his barkadas thought about vienna?

slovenia was gorgeous and the snow up in the mountains was a killer. glad we got our snow for our shoot in motel acacia.

excited for vienna. see you in a few!
