This week's sentence to finish is:
This summer I plan to...
...visit my friend in Austria again. Sunny and I visited her last summer and it was the most beautiful weekend I had last year. Some days ago she invited me again and we are both so very much looking forward to it!
The best part of it? She lives close to the place where "The Sound Of Music" was filmed. Before I visited her I did not even know that movie existed and she told me how there are always tons of tourists, especially from the US because the movie was such a huge success there - and still is. I recently read that it is the most watched movie ever (estimated 1.2 milliard viewers!) and, together with "Gone With The Wind", the most phenomenal box office hit of all times.
This week I decided I needed to fill this gap in education and I ordered the DVD in order to learn what the movie is all about and to see all the places and things we saw last year. I have to say that I am not sure many of my friends have ever even heard of it. I cannot recall that it was that successful here. The DVD came in the mail on Wednesday and I cannot wait to watch it.
Anyway, here are some of last year's pics. If you are a fan and would like me to take some pictures of anything in particular while I am there this summer, just let me know!
|The stunning view from my friend's porch. Isn't this awesome?|
|We did a bit of sightseeing|
|The famous church from the movie|

|Afterwards, we went for a little boat trip. The boys were so happy!|
|I really love the picturesque landscape!|
|There are beautiful, old Jugendstil mansions next to the lake|
Have you seen the movie and do you like it? Have you ever been to the continent? If yes, where have you been? I would really love to know!
