Once a year go someplace you have never been before- Dalai lama
Zindagi milegi na dobara– We all loved this movie as well.
There are many more inspirational quotes, which motivate you to travel as much as you can. When it comes to me, travelling is my first love. This summer I had to be in Salzburg (Austria) professionally. Ever heard of Salzburg – City of Mozart? I was hoping that my meeting finished on time. God listened to me and I still had a whole day to visit the city before heading towards my next destination. So I packed my bags and went for sightseeing in Salzburg.
Life is all about surprises!
I was roaming around in the old town. Suddenly, I heard my name and, as I turned back, I discovered one of my colleagues, who had been at our meeting early that day. We had a coffee together and he told me that he lived in Obertauern, where The Beatles shot one of their sequences for their filmHelp in 1965. Also, Obertauern is one of the best ski regions of Austria. This made me really curious, so I decided to visit this place as well.
I asked my colleague how I could get there and how far it was. He said it was only a one-hour drive from there. He also offered to take me to Obertauern and to bring me back to Salzburg the following day. How could I say no to this exciting oppurtunity? So, we were ready to drive to this wonderful place by his electric BMW.
Where to stay overnight?
After the long day, I felt tired and in need of a room to stay overnight. I found this nice hotel: Alpina Hotel. You can find more information about them on their website. The service was excellent and the room awesomely comfortable (I also recommend the delicious buffet breakfast they offered the next morning). All in all, it was a great feeling because I would have never thought that I would come to Obertauern. Finally, it was time to sleep and dream about the exciting day.
What an adventure
Sadly, my time in Obertauern had quickly come to an end and so I arrived back in Salzburg, ready for my next destination. I was still thinking about the whole experience. Not everyday one has the chance to visit two places where some of the most amazing musicians in History, Mozart and The Beatles, have left their mark on.
By the way, and as I mentioned before, Obertauern is well-known for its quality ski resorts… and for its legendary après-ski parties! The many tourists who choose this location during their winter holiday due to its incredible mountains can’t be wrong at all. So I am already excited for my wintery expierence, beacuse I am definetly visiting Obertauern again!
This place just has to be on your list of travel destinations!!
