The Alps and the Train Ride to Salzburg


Tuesday December 6, 2011

Riding the railways again today, this time I was on my way to Salzburg, Austria.   Five relaxing hours on the train, straight through, no connections to make, just sit back and watch the scenery.  The beautiful Alps, this trip,  are snowcapped,.  There are rushing streams  that at times run along the side of the tracks, racing with the train. The little villages that fill up a spattering  of the valleys with homes that look like little toys.  I even saw  a bee hive house as we were leaving the country of Slovenia. They have the tradition of painting the doors to each hive differently to help the bees return to the correct hive.  It was a great ride.
