A weekend in Dresden, maybe a day in Leipzig

Well, yesterday I had my last tour for the week and now I have a whole week off. Petra and I are going up to Dresden for a few days and maybe to Leipzig too…still working that out. According to my trusty Fodor’s book, there doesn’t appear to be that much in Dresden (or Leipzig for that matter), so we might be able to fit everything into just a couple days…but I’ll have the full run-down of what we saw when I’m back next week.

Dresden and Leipzig have always been on the to-do list, but I’ve never had the budget of most of the people on my tours and so it’s one city at a time usually. Anyways, it’ll be a nice relaxing Saturday for sure, looking forward to the hot-tub!

Salzburg in March 2009

I’ve taken a few pics randomly down in Salzburg…this first one is of Untersberg from the Europark shopping mall at the edge of town.

This second one is in the same direction, while I was waiting at the bus stop, heading back to meet up with my group.

Finally this last one is of a Smart car that they have in the mall right now. I had never actually sat in one and played around with all the features, so this gave me the chance. I’m about 6’2″, and that’s about as tall as you can be for this car, but was quite comfortable at my height…so should be good enough for most people. It feels like a go cart and the spedometer only goes to 140kph…so isn’t much faster than a go cart either.
