Life Moves Pretty Fast

It has officially been one month since I left good ole Boston, and what a whirlwind it has been thus far.  Where has the time gone?  This weekend specifically, I realized how fast the time is going, but how many things I am filling my limited amount of time with.  Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start:

Friday morning I hiked Untersberg Mountain with some friends, which is part of the Berchtesgaden Alps.  The Berchtesgaden Alps naturally separate Austria from Germany.  A whopping 1,973 meters above sea level, the climb took us about three and a half hours.  We certainly kept a steady pace.  The hike was steep to say the least, but worth it nonetheless.


Saturday welcomed a trip to nearby Hallstatt, the ice caves, and Lammerklamm Gorge.  A busy day followed by late night museum hopping through Salzburg.  For a mere eleven euro, you could get into over forty museums in the Salzburg area from 6:00 pm until 1:00 am, and better yet, they organized bus routes to shuttle you to all of the museums.  It was a truly wonderful evening!  Every city should do this!



Sunday started with a long run through Salzburg, of course!  Then we went to the Salzburg fußball game (soccer).  We won 4-1 and enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere of the stadium.


With jam-packed weekends like this, it’s easy to lose track of the time.  I’m always sure to take pictures and little mementos from each journey, but I always always always make sure to stop and take it all in.  I always take a deep breath and look around because I still cannot believe I am here, and this is my life until Christmas.  I am currently writing this post from a bench in the Mirabell Gardens, soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the view.  Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.IMG_4237

  1. You killed the movie quotes in this post. Still baffled by how far away you are. But soon… those 6 hours will only be 5 hours! At least for a few days! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear more about your adventures! (And your half marathon on Sunday!!)
