A European Christmas

Yep, I will be spending Christmas in Germany this year. I will be staying with my friend Claudia who lives in a small village in northern Bavaria. I have been there many times before but never for Christmas. It should be fun. Before that I will be in Salzburg, Austria for five days. I don't know how I survived this long without going there as not only is it the home of Mozart but the filming of The Sound of Music, my favourite movie OF ALL TIME was done there. My Mecca. I can't wait! I have a ticket to see "The Sound of Music" on December 17th - it hasn't been performed live in Salzburg in a long time. So what if it's in German, I know every damn word anyway!!! And to pick up all those (over the top touristy) Mozart vibes, I can't wait. You know there will be a concert of Mozart in there somewhere. Mozart and McCartney - the best composers ever! Other than that things are still being worked out - all I know is I will be spending the last part of the holiday in London. How can I not go with being on that side of the pond? I hope to start seriously walking the Thames Path and finish up in May of 2013. The Thames Path is 180 km long so it will be quite the challenge. I hope to do a great deal of the London part of it while I am there. It will get me in shape for the next challenge - the Surf City half marathon in Huntington Beach, California on February 6th. But that is another post...
