A very welcome rest day!

Last night we had an included dinner at a Mozart Performance and Sara, our guide said we had to walk there. Everyone was exhausted after all the walking and complained so she booked cabs for us. Thank goodness!

It was an interesting evening. There are 21 of us on the tour and everyone is very pleasant – some from UK, some from USA and some other Aussies. A group of five string players played Mozart and a male and a female singer performed. It was a bit too high brow for me, but it was OK. The music was interspersed with dinner.

A taste of our entertainment

Dinner was supposed to be as it would have been in Mozart’s time. The soup was a small bowl of chicken broth with a dumpling which tasted like stuffing. The main course was a very small chicken leg, a drizzle of potato purée and a few pieces of carrot. Dessert was three peaks of beaten egg whites. David’s comment was “No wonder Mozart died so young if that’s what he ate”. Some people loved the opera and really enjoyed it. The place, an old Abbey, was packed and they have won a few tourism awards.

I woke this morning feeling a little dizzy. Think I was just exhausted so we slept in. Luckily it’s a free day. We went for a very gentle wander near the hotel and dropped our laundry into a place called Norge Exquisite .

Our hotel, Goldenes Theater is very close to a huge rock and a pleasant street of eateries and jewellery shops etc. Of course, David bought me a pretty pair of silver earrings and I also bought a new raincoat even though today has been a beautiful sunny day.

The street built up against the rock.

This afternoon we have rested. We are about to collect our laundry, visit a little eatery for dinner and return to the hotel for an early night. Tomorrow is another day.

  1. It all sounds lovely but yes the food sounds like you are on a diet! We had the first of Alicia’s 21st last night. Hard to believe but lovely memories. We hope today has been better. We found APT great but have not done Travelmarvel. Enjoy. Cheers, Dawn
