Back to my trip through Austria in 2012, after spending half day in Vienna, I went by train to Salzburg early in the morning. First thing that surprised me, probably because I was still a bit sleepy, was the fact that I could get on the train without any barriers or ticket gates. Then I panicked on the train when I realized I didn’t buy any ticket on the station, but that’s the point, you pay the ticket to your destination on the train.
I was sleeping the whole trip to Salzburg to recover some energy, I just slept 3-4 hours the night before. Once in Salzburg I took a bus to the hostel and waited there for my friends, that would be my tourist guides for 2 days.
The second day was on schedule and everything planned by my friends, so I just had to relax and enjoy.
From here I can’t say how grateful I am to my friends in both Vienna and Salzburg, without them the experience wouldn’t have been the same
