After ten years since our last visit, we returned to Las Vegas with friends. We had a great time, checking out the Happy Half Hour on the High Roller Observation Wheel (would definitely do that again!), going to a show (Zumanity- so much laughing), and walking up and down the strip, enjoying the sites and people watching. We also enjoyed the bottomless Bloody Marys and Mimosas on the top floor patio of Hard Rock Café where we had great views, an awesome server, and a talented musician entertaining us. One of our best memories from this trip.
We stayed at New York, New York and had a great experience there, including my favorite place to eat this trip...Chin Chin Café and Sushi Bar. The sushi was delicious.
I love the energy of this city.

Schloss Mirabelle, Gardens
The linden trees caught my eye immediately, and we watched as workers trimmed the branches back, a process I later learned is called "pollarding"
View of gardens with fortress in background, taken from entrance off Bernhard Paumgartner Weg.
Well known as a movie location for the "Sound of Music", Mirabell Gardens isn't just for fans. Although it was fun to see the same spots that were in some of the scenes, the gardens themselves are well worth a visit. Unfortunately, in early March, we missed out on the beautiful flowers. I've seen photos of the gardens in peak season, and I hope someday to return to Salzburg during a better time to see Mirabell in full bloom.

Altstadt Confiserie on Munzgasse
One item on my to do list for Salzburg was to try a Mozartkugel, preferably handmade. As we wandered around Old Town Salzburg, we came across this candy shop, with a window full of Mozartkugels. Inside we went, where they were wrapping the candies we wanted to buy. Small and round, made with pistachio marzipan and hazelnut nougat and covered in dark chocolate, they were soon to become a new favorite of mine. As I sit here typing this, I'm wishing we'd bought dozens to bring home because they were so good. And I'd really like to have one or two (or three) more.
