After a quick stop in Salzburg, the rest of our family left to go back home, leaving just Blair, Lauren, and I for another week before Blair too was set to head back home. As they flew west across the Atlantic, the three of us hopped on a train going the opposite direction toward Romania….
Meeting Evelin’s Parents! St. Veit im Pongau, Austria
