Austria Germany Salzburg Munich Train

10 June 2016

Dog piss department store

From Salzburg to Munich by train

I knew it must happen. Today in a department store back in Munich, where I now am, in the flash basement food section, I saw a dog take a full piss on some tiles that were on a slope, so it ran down into the stores carpet. Excellent.
All over Europe, including England, you can take your dog whereever your please. If you tried that in David Jones you might get arrested, we still try and ban blind people with their dogs from time to time.
Anyway, they can enjoy cleaning that up now, cause the old woman just kept walking as if nothing happened.

As I mentioned, I am now back in Munich, where I was for a week a week ago. I am very near to where I stayed, but of course not in a nice hotel because I only enjoy cheap hotels.
Having said that, the hotel which I am in is much nicer than the last 3, despite being cheaper. It even has a little fridge, a very rare thing in Europe.
There is no air conditioning though, very rare to find that in Europe, so since its hot outside, its hot inside, I can open the window to let in the hot breeze and ambience from the various strip clubs and kebab stores below.

Also, you may have heard stories about the punctuality of the German train system. Dont be fooled! All mine have been late, and today the 1.5 hour train journey ended up taking 2.5 hours. Thats worse than most plane delays which have weather to contend with.
The train was mostly empty again also, probably due to everyone being sick of being late, the few people that were on board were ranting and raving and pacing about, presumably due to how late we were.

I think thats the mountain I got soaked on yesterday, I attempted to get to the pointy bit still in the cloud in this photo, but went up an even pointier bit that lead to a dead end.

Today in Salzburg is wall to wall tour groups, mostly old people, a few Chinese. They are absolutely everywhere. I also saw 2 competing segway tours under way, and the sound of music buses plying the streets.

Speaking of the sound of music, its everywhere here. I dont recall seeing the movie, but it involves a flying nun who throws pixie dust at children and helps them escape nazis by blowing a whistle.
The bit I dont get is why did they escape to Austria? Maybe it was just filmed here but in the movie they escaped to Switzerland? I will re write the story in my head now, ok done, they all escaped to Austria not realising there were even more nazis, and they all got shot.
