Guten Morgen! I am fresh off a crazy day of travel, and thought I’d take a moment to tell you about my time at Neuschwanstein Castle. As you may know, Neuschwanstein is the castle that inspired Walt Disney to build the original Disney Castle in Disneyland. It was built in the 17th century for the king of Bavaria, who never lived in it because he died before it was completed. It is perched onto of a hill in the south of Germany, overlooking a valley of rivers and waterfalls. I describe it this way based on pictures I’ve seen, because we didn’t actually get to see the castle yesterday. Unfortunately, the snow storm was so fierce, everything was completely whited out and hidden from view. Oh well- we had fun playing in the snow next to the castle! I hope to return another time in the summer to see it in all it’s lush grander and glory. Below is a picture of the castle in June! After our snowy adventure, we made our way to Munich for dinner at one of the famous Brew Houses. This was my first time to Munich, and I was thoroughly impressed. It is a large city with quaint, quintessentially German character. All in all, a cold but enjoyable experience. I shall return for you again, Neuschwanstein- mark my words!
