From August 29 through September 8th in 2013, Marci and Jay took the trip Marci had long been planning. Our goal was to see as many of the old churches and their pipe organs as we could. We traveled by bus on the Trafalgar Sound of Music tour, saw many sites featured in the Sound of Music film and visited many churches during our free time. The bus was a luxurious Mercedes driven brilliantly by Paullo who was also a life saver always ready with cold bottles of water which we needed because a lot of walking was required to visit the sites. Justin, our tour guide, speaks five languages and has a broad knowledge of the area we would see. He was very helpful to Marci in directing her to the churches she should see. The Trafalgar tour was excellent. My only complaints were about the food and that the hotels were often at some distance from the old town center and we found the walking exhausting.

For the photo buffs, I used a Nikon P7100 for most of the pictures. A few were taken with our iPhone 5’s.
