[Photo Journal] The hills are alive in Salzburg Austria

Myra here.

We are excited to share photographs every Tuesday about our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

A month ago, my travel buddy and very good friend Tuting Hernandez and I took a day-trip to Salzburg from Munich. The view and the entire landscape were simply breathtaking. This is one city I will have to visit again in my lifetime: I think I would spend a minimum of three days here in this gorgeous place to really soak in the sights and sounds.

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”

― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

To travel is to live.”

“We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered.” 
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
