"....The hills are alive, with The Sound of Music!"
Can you hear the music now? I LOVE this movie.
Each year, my family and I would watch this movie as a family..and over the years, it's become even more of a favorite of mine. There are so many "gems" of scenes and the songs are still wonderful after all of these years. Watching Maria, the Captain, and seeing the sights and hearing the sounds with my children take me to a different time and place. I'm happy that my kids enjoy it as much as I do. : )
~A few years ago, my daughter and I traveled with her Suzuki Violin group to "spread peace through music" and toured Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany. In Salzburg, Austria, where the The Sound of Music was filmed, we stayed in a wonderful bed and breakfast and rode the cable car up to Mt. Untersberg. - the view was spectacular. The director of the group did a "Maria-esque" twirl once she arrived at the top of the mountain..it was such a great day!
The Violin group also played in front of the famous gazebo in the gardens at Hellbrun Palace - what a once-in-a-lifetime event! The palace as well as the gardens are a must-see if you are ever in Austria.
What good memories! If you ever get a chance, you must visit Salzburg!
