    Traveling While Black

    There are two cities that really stir my heart when I go down memory lane: Barcelona and Salzburg. They are where I have felt the most at ease and at home.

    Salzburg really has ALL the sights and experiences. It felt like we did it all, but obviously there’s so much more. It’s a city of art, your senses are filled everywhere you go, even in the corridors and mountain passes. I love visiting cathedrals, and I just couldn’t get enough. The catacombs, the beautiful graveyards, the Volksgarten (Peoples Garden), the Sound of Music museum, Mozart’s home. We had the pleasure of seeing William Kentridge works. We walked through the university. It was the first time that I had zucchini chocolate cake; the baker appreciated this and came to chat to us about this thing of beauty.

    And then we devoured the nightlife. It all happens on the main center’s side of the bridge. You’ll understand when you get there. I don’t know the name of the club, I only remember descending the stairs to the basement, and when it got started it was pumping!!! Salsa, Kizomba, Bachata, Zouk. We left drenched. And it wasn’t the only one. The bars are intimate; we met a lovely (lonely) regular, Charlotte, nostalgic about her younger days, she’d speak to anyone who’d give her a moment.

    Our accommodation was Airb&b, a lovely old house. Wifi was a bit unreliable but with everything there is to do and enjoy, I hardly found myself on my phone. We went shopping for meal ingredients at the local Spar. That was interesting. Some people don’t like to see happy black people, especially when they themselves are struggling.

    That said, Salzburg is highly recommended as a place of vivid and rich culture, and vibrant nightlife. When in non black places, you know it’s gonna be a party when the bouncers are BLACK! The young people, especially, are really chilled. Enjoy the chocolate. Enjoy the beer. Go dancing with your love. Respect the people, the culture and the environment, and have a great time.

    Traveling While Black

    I did a day trip from Munich, Germany to Salzburg, Austria with a tour group. It was about 3 hours by train to get to Salzburg and then we did a walking tour throughout the city for a couple of hours. For all my Sound of Music fans out there you will appreciate this city as a lot of major scenes took place here. We walked through St. Peter’s Monastery & Cemetery & Catacombs which by the way is stunning. It’s very quiet and peaceful as you walk through it. I also saw Residenzplatz Square & Residence Fountain as well as Leopoldskron Palace. At the time that I went it was already midday and of course there were a lot of people taking pictures. If you’re like me and don’t like having random tourists in your pictures, I would recommend going earlier in the morning. Maybe you’ll have better luck than I did but it was totally worth seeing because the architecture and design is breathtaking.

    During this walking tour we were also able to see the birthplace and home of Mozart. I was able to dine at Mozart’s favorite cafe where they serve the world’s best chocolate cake, Cafe Tomaselli. The cafe is a total zoo and no one waits to be seated. It’s first come, first serve so you better have eyes like a hawk to snag a table quickly. The chocolate cake is delicious. I love chocolate and I fell in love with this piece of cake. Across the plaza are two small shops that make the famous Mozart balls. This is where they originated. One of the shops lets you walk in and watch how they’re made. They’re a little pricey but you can only buy the real stuff in Salzburg. I was told not to bother buying it anywhere else so when in Salzburg, why not treat yo self?

    Just a few feet away from Cafe Tomaselli there is a long street with tons of shops and places to eat. When our walking tour ended and we had free time I had myself a little shopping spree. Even if you’re not a big shopper you have to go to Getreidegasse because it is such a beautiful site with the cobble stone and the architecture and iron guild signs for all of the stores. I mean even McDonald’s has a pretty impressive iron sign.

    Hohensalzburg Fortress is another place to check out while you’re in Salzburg. I, unfortunately was unable to go to the top to see the views from the fortress as I chose to shop but half the people from the tour group I was in went and they loved it. They were able to see views of the entire city. Getting to the top is a climb though so you’ll need a couple of hours to go to the top, take pictures and go back down. If you have a chance to go to Salzburg I say go and pair it up with Vienna too!!
