Austria: Salzburg- Completely Bewitched

Continuing with my raving about the awesomeness of Salzburg, please enjoy our entire day spent walking the town:

We wandered through more of Old Town, exploring shops and Farmer's Markets (this seems to be the way that most people "grocery shop" here, and it is AMAZING!)

Delicious chocolate for breakfast, obviously!

Farmer's Market Delights:

Random Old Town

Still functional "doorbells"

Our objective for the day was to explore the castle above the town, and we discovered that there was a ridge-line walk that you could do from the end of Old Town to the castle that offered a nice breath of fresh air and captivating views of the city.

There were many walls and schlosses (large estates) along the way.

The views couldn't be beat.
What was also awesome was there were many watering stations dispensing natural spring water that was free and safe for drinking.

Seriously, I could spend my life here, just walking around casually, chatting with friendly people, drinking amazing coffee, and fighting off morbid obesity with the incredible food and chocolate options.
