First Salzburg impressions (without having been into the centre yet): dirty, tacky, overpriced, muggy climate. But at least there's a Lidl with weissbier round the corner. Just woken from my first full night's sleep in weeks. So that's what sleeping feels like!
There are dozens of sights to see but I still have to pace myself and choose the ones I actually want to see. There's a palace worth a tour. And the two Mozart houses. But castles with actors in medieval gear are not my thing. Do they Disneyfy Edinburgh castle nowadays?
There are several "concerts", most of them actually overpriced candle lit dinners, with a string quartet in wigs. Tacky as eff.
I only planned visiting here because with the cellmate it could have been a romantic adventure. Now I'm just going through the motions to use up the hotel and flight. It'll be okay so long as I refocus on what I need for myself. Rest. Food. Fresh air at last after 6 days in aircon. Yoga. More rest. Might even try some more of that breathing stuff that was so helpful when I was stressed. Maybe when you're not stressed it can lift you to another plane.
