For the rest of the Easter holiday, we spent time enjoying what his motherland has to offer. Some of the highlights include checking out the sites that appeared in the Julie Andrews film, The Sound of Music; visiting Halstatt, a cute lakeside village that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; taking the funicular to see the Salzkammergut area; trying out local Austrian food, especially the famous dessert, Sacher Torte. :)

Boy was I dead wrong.
The closer I got to "the age", the more I realize the many other things I don't know.

this unexpected, but most welcome kind of love <3
We tried so hard not to smile (too much), but I guess we both failed... massively :D
Oh life. You're amazing.
Overwhelmed with joy and gratitude! Even though I miss my family and friends from home, I was extremely lucky because for my week-long birthday celebration, I had wonderful new loves who made sure that I didn't feel alone.
From surprise greetings, such as this Bounty-flavored creation (oh my goodness, it was sooooo goood) courtesy of the beautiful Ms. B, and some wild, happy singing in multiple languages, thanks to my wonderful classmates...
