I took the weekend to see the parts of Edinburgh that I've not seen before as all my previous trips have been during the Fringe.
A sculpture park created by architect and sculptor Carl Milles in the grounds of his home in Stockholm, the statues are primarily set on tall columns to frame them against the sky and the sun.
Six of our headed out on Saturday morning for Brännö island, off the coast of Gothenburg. Part of the Archipelago that is easily accessible by the many ferries.
We had the fun of navigating through Munich’s fairly awful one way systems, and as its a german city is was full of BMW and Mercedes drivers...
It was about a ten minute walk to the start of Burg zu Burghausen, which is a kilometre long, on the hill above old town. at the start it barely seems like castle...
We walked around a fair bit in old town and saw Mozarts Geburtshaus, his birthplace, though we didn’t go in as the crowds were thick outside the building.
We saw quite a few castles on our drive, but it was only on the same exit as for our hotel that we saw the signs for the ice caves and the castle that had encouraged us to come out to Werfen.
We had decided the evening before that we would go straight to the Alpen Zoo in Innsbruck, which is slightly out of town and had its own parking.
