It was an early start as we boarded the bus and embarked on our Sound of Music tour that would take us to all the sights made famous by the film. We started in Salzburg city centre and then set out to Salzburgerland for a wondrous journey through the splendid Alpine region surrounding the city of Mozart, festivals and of course, "The Sound of Music." Our guide for the day, Michaela, introduced herself and her very special guest too—Elisabeth von Trapp, granddaughter of the renowned Maria and Baron Georg von Trapp. After Elisabeth greeted all of us, she began to gently strum the notes of "Edelweiss." The din of the bus fell silent as her sweet voice filled the air with the beloved Austrian ballad. From that moment, I knew this day was going to be filled with sights and song as we set out on our pilgrimage of sorts to relive the legendary story of "The Sound of Music." But we're not the only ones.
