Salzburg Visit, Easter, etc.
I did have a pleasant time in Salzburg Wednesday into Thursday and the weather honestly could not have been more beautiful. Wednesday especially was a beautiful almost early summer like day. I tested again when I got there (negative) and then walked around. Was planning to meet up with my great cousin Kathrin but we ended up not being able to (she had a false positive Covid test and out of caution we decided to cancel our plans - her PCR results did not come in until the day after) Such a strange world these days. But I still had a nice day walking around, getting ice cream and lunch, taking in the sights of the city and even just sitting in Mirabell Gardens reading my book for a few hours.
It was still kind of weird being in Salzburg and not seeing the usual amount of tourists, no dining open (normally with nice weather there would be TONS of outdoor dining for restaurants/cafes and stands and whatnot) etc. Such a strange world these days.
Wednesday night I met up with my friend Anneliese and we had a fun picnic by the Salzach river overlooking the fortress up on the hill. I stayed overnight at her apartment and then took the train back mid day on Thursday.
Not too much has happened since then. Just been spending time with my mom. My aunt stopped by as well and seen a few neighbors etc. but that's about it. We have been in 24 hours lock down since Thursday anyway so not much to do really, even if I wanted to. Also just been focusing on helping with getting my mom settled in the house, clearing out and organizing things, setting up her smartphone again and working on my dad's laptop. The laptop honestly has been the most hassle. We don't know the password/pin for it and all the other recovery measures are also a dead end. So just figuring out work arounds so we can hopefully get it all set up for my mom before I leave.
Weather has been all over the place with being almost summer like and now turning back into winter weather. But I guess that's about normal for this time of the year. Also, anybody who celebrates Easter, Happy Easter of course. We aren't usually big Easter people so we didn't do anything special for it.
