|This is a picture of the glorious Mondsee|
Apparently "Favourite things" was the first scene that they shot.
I spent a couple of weeks in The Sound of Music territory whilst an Exchange Student in Germany. One of my host families took me on holidays to Mondsee (where the church Maria and The Captain married is) and when I wasn't busily lazing around the gorgeous lake, going to the Salzbuger Festspiele (where I had the pleasure of seeing The Magic Flute opera) I was exploring the countryside looking for Eidelweiss (not realising that it is a protected plant).
And yes, I did my own version of "The Hills are Alive". It is an incredibly beautiful part of the world. Breathtaking. Lush.
