Munich-Salzburg travel cost was zero

Yes you read it right and no we didn’t travel without tickets. Nine-euro ticket is traveller’s lottery these days in Germany, its one transport ticket that is valid for an entire month. For 9 euros, one can travel unlimited times throughout Germany on local/regional trains/transport services for a whole month in June, July or August. Last Thursday we visited the DB information office at Munich central station to book our tickets for Salzburg on Friday. There was a sign saying “9 euros ticket includes travelling to Salzburg on 2.class on regional trains”. My husband got it confirmed at the ticket counter and got an itinerary. Hurrah!!! One could see an increased demand for certain local/regional trains. Munich-Salzburg is one of the popular routes.

What am I (we) running from

We wish to enjoy a couple of real summer days, soak ourselves in early morning sunlight. Looking at our weather reports this may not happen any soon. We do get sunshine which is quite unpredictable and is inadequate.

We have a certain plan for coming days, at least from our side I can say. The situation these days adds some ambiguity to it but so is life. If we are lucky enough, we shall land in a sunny city. We don’t need to worry about the garden as we have some friends in the weather forecast department who have given us a green signal.

I hope to get good internet connection and shall try to update my Instagram page which I am not good at. May be I need some motivation 😀

Be happy and enjoy summer! See you next week.

Let cat out of the bag!
