This past weekend was a shorter trip than normal. We took a two day trip to Salzburg, Austria to see what all the buzz was about.

The first day there, we explored the city a little bit and visited the Red Bull Hangar 7. Since Red Bull was founded and made in Austria, Red Bull is everywhere. Hangar 7 is a really cool art gallery and airplane hangar with Red Bull sponsored power sport stuff like cars, airplanes, race cars and more. It was a lot of fun. We even enjoyed some delicious Red Bull inspired mixed drinks. I had a Flying Bull which consisted of grenadine, lemon, Red Bull and vodka, it was pretty amazing, tasted a little bit like a sour watermelon drink or something along those lines.

After the Hangar 7 experience we went back into the town and went to a quaint little Irish Pub where I have honestly experienced the most delicious bacon cheeseburger in my entire life. It was absolutely amazing, im not even lying, words cannot describe. I think at least 5 of us plan to take a day trip back there just to indulge in the burger again.

After the most amazing burger ever, we walked around just to see what was going on and we stumbled upon an outdoor concert and skating rink combo. The concert was really cool while we just chilled for a little bit, and Brandon, Ethan and Billy skated for a bit as well. It wasnt an ice rink, but they used high density polyethylene instead which has a surface almost like ice so people can actually skate without frozen water, its pretty cool. (Polymers class payed off).

The next day we visited the Salzburg castle on the top of the hill which was pretty amazing, it was essentially a city within a city. It had some amazing views of the surrounding city as well as some of the mountains of the alps.

The big group split up and 4 of us went to the Salzburg Zoo before we decided to head home. We got to see all kinds of animals which was nice because I havent been to a zoo in like 8 years. I have some cool videos of Snow Leopards playing with each other. Plus all kinds of pictures of monkeys, reptiles, foxes, lions, rhinos, deer and a bunch more, it was a lot of fun.

Stayed tuned for the massive post I will be making for my trip to Italy!

There aren't many people who can say they've traveled Europe and found the most amazing cheeseburger! I was expecting some traditional Austrian foods to become a favorite. Too funny!!
