SIGHTSEEING CASTLES

Warning! You are about to be slapped in the face with an absurd amount of pictures of the same castles over and over again. You've been warned ...

We've been in Germany now for a little over a week, and boy how time flies! I feel like Eric and I have seen so much already that it surprises me that there could possibly be more! I'm telling you Europe, you have got a treasure here for sure! Castles, history, great food, incredible fashion. It will be hard to leave you next week! 

Over the weekend the mister and I hit up some of the most touristy things you can do in these parts: tour the Neuschwanstein & Hohenschwangau Castles, visit the Dachau Concentration Camp and walk around the Deutsches Museum. More on those last two later. Let's get to these beauties found above. We arrived in the quaint town of F├╝ssen by train and then hoped a bus over to our location. The weather could not have been more fairy tale like (is that even a real phrase?). The fog was so picturesque, although we were a little afraid while we were hiking up that we wouldn't be able to get a great photo. Luckily the clouds positioned themselves properly and we got our picture (or maybe 50). I'm telling you these photos do not do them justice. If only we were aloud to take pictures inside!! I mean, there is even a cave in the Neuschwanstein Castle. It doesn't get more disney then that people! As you walk around the rooms you hear the stories of King Ludwig II of Bavaria; his childhood, his upbringing, his personal life and struggles, his inspiration for the castle, all the way to his mysterious death. I feel like I could hear them over and over again. The best part, however, is when you reach the merchandise room. What? Why do they have something like that inside? Too funny! If you ever travel to this area, we highly recommend using this company for your guided tour, ask for Jonathan. Our guide was super funny and knew the ins and outs of the rooms we didn't get to tour as well as so much knowledge on King Ludwig. Plus, it didn't hurt that he had a dreamy British accent and looked just like Prince William! (when he still had hair that is...) Just saying ::winks::
