Booked our day trip tour to Salzburg for our post ABD day. Only 62 days until we leave home to start our 3 week adventure!! Every free moment I have I find myself searching the internet, double checking and triple checking all of our trip details.

So exciting! Three weeks is a HUGE trip! We only booked one day prior, staying at the same hotel in Heidelberg, but I am almost sorry we didn't take a post day to see Salzburg. (Especially after teaching my vocal students the Sound of Music!)

Do you mind sharing what your plans are in Salzburg? We're adding a day there at the end of our trip but I haven't made specific plans yet. Looking for ideas.

We booked a day tour via Local Munich Tours/Isango. There is a portion of the tour that is guided and 3 hours or so on your own. I plan to check out whatever highlights the guide doesn't cover. My DD is most interested in the Sound of Music sites.

We were at the sight in Salzburg where they have the gazebo used in the Sound of Music. It is glassed in so you can't go inside BUT the estate where it is located is amazing. It was a country estate of a Bishop and contains amazing fountains. Definitely tour this estate....beautiful and you will be impressed of the technology just based on water power. Eat lunch at the castle located high above the city where the views of the Alps in remarkable and does remind you of the movie. The food was really good also. Loved Salzburg. Very jealous here.

Only 27 more days until we step foot in Germany!! 13 more work days for myself and 13 more days of school for my DD. I haven't received our ABD box yet but have seen other DISer's post that the boxes are not being shipped out in a timely fashion due to "printer issues". Trying to not be impatient in the meantime.

We got our ABD box with itinerary, luggage tags and backpacks today. The new style of backpack is not at all to our liking. I sure wish they hadn't changed it. Good news is we are going to GERMANY!! We leave in exactly 2 weeks.

I will be posting my first trip report for Germany...or that is my plan at least.
Since we are doing the Ireland ABD right after our Germany ABD we won't actually be back home until July 10th around 1am in the morning west coast time. I know we will be exhausted but I will try to post a small blurb when I eventually wake up. Please PM me if you have specific questions and I will try to answer those 1st. Having never done a trip report I'm not sure how long it will take. Good news is, I don't have to go back to work for a week after we return so I will have some time to work on it.

If you put daily detail and photos in it, it takes a lot of time!

Thanks for your offer! One of the things I am curious about is the actual "on your own time" you have in Munich. DD19 really would like to see Dachau Concentration Camp in Munich about 20 minutes away and wondered if it was at all possible. She is an European Studies minor and has spent a lot of time studying the Holocaust.
She may have to take a side trip while she is studying abroad in London next semester, but if it is doable, she'd like to now.

We arrive a day early in Heidelberg, so if you find something not to be missed that isn't on the tour, please share!

Have a great trip!!
