This last weekend Luke and I took a quick trip to Salzburg, Austria. Here are a few pictures from our trip! A little explanation for the last three pictures...biergartens are very common in Germany (and Austria). They are usually an outdoor seating area associated with a restaurant and covered by large trees. You are allowed to bring food in with you from home or another restaurant, you just have to order a beverage. Germans will gather with their family or friends on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon just to hang out, maybe bring cards to play. Luke and I were thinking the Germans that came to America should've brought this tradition with them, but then we remembered how many days a year the weather is nice enough (and not too windy) to really enjoy eating outside. Oh well!
