Places are sections of a quilt. We make that quilt bigger the more we travel. Some sections, or squares, have vivid pictures. Others, just an abstract of a long-ago memory. They’re all wonderful. My kids’ happiness won’t necessarily be the size of their quilt, but rather the detail. I can’t wait to add some more squares.

Filming sites from the Sound of Music are very accessible around Salzburg. They look remarkably like they did in the movie 40 years ago. A half-day tour allowed us to see plenty of sights.
The Sheraton Grand Hotel in Salzburg is located downtown near many popular attractions. It’s a member of the Starwood Preferred Guest program. The hotel can be a great value for an award redemption.
