When we were on our Trafalgar Tour - Imperial Europe we visited Salzburg, Austria the site of many iconic Sound of Music locations. Here I am at Schloss Hellbrun and in the gardens is the gazebo the scene of "I am sixteen going on seventeen". It was moved here to make is more accessible to fans of the movie. I am doing my best dance around the gazebo, which unfortunately is firmly locked. Many years ago I read Charmaine Carr's (Leisl) biography and she wrote that during the filming of these scenes she twisted her ankle dancing around on the seats, she had it taped up and she went on to complete the dance sequence. If you look closely in the movie you can see the bandage.
This layout shows the Christmas markets held at the Schloss - there was an advent calender on the front of the Schloss. Very colourful.This is the double page layout of the two above.Now to London. On this day we had made a visit to Blade Rubber Stamps - a store selling scrapbook materials that I had researched before leaving Sydney, of course we visited and purchased some goodies. Next door, was the London Review Bookshop and Cafe, we stopped for tea and mince pies. Whilst Heather was reading the book "Tea and Cake in London" she found the cafe was featured in the book and she made a note of others that we could visit or she had visited before. The mince pies were yummy!!!
