Austria Salzburg Kapuzinerberg

9 June 2016

Supermarket is the only healthy option

The view from Kapuzinerberg in Salzburg

Its still raining. It rained all day.
But in great news, my camera came back to life after a session with the hair dryer.
I bought snacks for my mountain ascent this morning, and despite not really ascending and therefore not burning 1000 or more calories, I ate them all. I say that, but I seem pretty buggered but I think thats from descending and the stress it puts on knees and things.
So this evening I accidentally had to climb the city hill. It was a bigger task than I realised and took 90 minutes. It was mostly under tree canopy so I didnt get wet. The view was great the path was one I couldnt lose, and I had the whole place to myself.

Despite city hill, I felt mountain snacks were still providing a calorie surplus, so I needed a healthy dinner. Germany generally is not healthy. Salzburg is the worst. Everywhere is for tourists, so everywhere has the traditional tourist German food. And I have had enough of that.
Please no more sausage or schnitzel. The other option thats everywhere is kebab shops, and no.

Anyway, I looked everywhere, and the only options that looked promising were shut, lunch time only things for workers as opposed to tourists.
So I ended up at the station which has a great supermarket open until midnight where I bought a plethora of delicious healthy things...and a small dessert.

I had no intention of going all the way up and along this hill, I literally turned up what I thought was a narrow street, and before I knew it there were stairs. I cant then not see where they go.

I enjoyed the walk very much. The path was mainly like this but there were parts that were puddles and mud.
However I did not need to slide on my ass at any point like earlier today, gloves were not requried, and I didnt get submerged in a waterfall.

Descending briefly showed me the other side of this hill, where you can see a different side of Salzburg. I know it does not look like it, but it was still raining!

Once back down, I saw the first sign of neo nazism in Germany. Actually along here there were a heap of buildings with the anarchy symbol graffiti, a record shop being run out of a bus, and an experimental dance institute.

And heres all my dinner items. It was delicious...or is delicious, I am continuing to eat it as I type this.
I have grown to love sugar free naked cowboy couple drink.
Also by eating in my tiny hotel room (which took some creative organisation skills), I can justify carrying my fold up cutlery set with me wherever I go.
