You are Maria Von Trapp, wife of Captain Georg Von Trap of the Austrian Navy. You fell in love and married the widowed Captain shortly after coming into their home as a Governess to their 7 wonderful children: Liesl, Friedrich, Louisa, Kurt, Brigitta, Marta, and Gretl.
It is the year 1938 and Germany is preparing to annex Austria and form the Greater German Reich, but the Captain wants no part in this. As Captain in the Navy, he knows he must obey Nazi orders or suffer the consequences. He is preparing an escape mission out of Salzburg for all of you, as soon as possible. It must be quick and quiet since Nazi partisans are everywhere.
Having just returned from your honeymoon, you decide to let the Captain deal with the details of the escape and take the kids out for a fun day out around Salzburg. These are your final days in the city after all, even if the children do not know this.
You start your day in the Kurgarten, close to Schloss Mirabell, your children's favorite playground.
