The Photo Diary / The Lakes Of Salzburg

Tweet | Facebook | Email

At the end of last year I celebrated the pretty big milestone of turning 30. While I don’t balk at advancing age (I have started to really enjoy the increasing confidence and diminishing tolerance for BS from others that accompanies each new year), I still felt that the start of a new decade in my life warranted something fancy. Fortunately, my husband agreed and even acquiesced to yet another jaunt around my maternal homeland of Austria.

Out we flew to Salzburg. Seeing the snowcapped mountains from the window of the aeroplane always fills me with a sense of contentedness and this time was no different – Austria makes for a mighty pretty aerial view. On the ground, it didn’t lose any of it’s allure; from the magnificent mountaintops to the crystalline lakes, a few gulps of the fresh air in Austria is just the tonic when emerging from the clutches of busy London.

Our chosen hotel, Schloss Fuschl, is a shining example of the Austrian take on luxury – no bells and whistles, just good service (but without any bowing or scraping), lots of attention to detail in the bedrooms, a breakfast to rival all others and a sense of peacefulness all around.

Here are my highlights of the holiday /
