    Neuschwanstein Castle

    August 7, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    It's no surprise at all why Walt Disney was inspired while visiting this Castle years ago. I've seen a lot of beautiful buildings on my travels but this one absolutely took my breath away! I joined a tour group for this adventure thinking it would be the easiest way to ensure I captured the full experience and what an adventure it was! The 2 hour train journey turned into a 5 hour journey after the train broke down and the connecting buses were running late. Luckily I made friends with two Aussie couples and killed the time chatting with them. We finally got to the castle, with five minutes to spare before our time slot to go inside, only to find the tour company had cancelled our reservation. I was so gutted because I really wanted to go inside knowing it'd probably be my only chance unless I bring my kids back one day but we made the most of our time here nonetheless. We were given 30 minutes to view the bridge which had a huge line but I took a gamble and clambered up this rockface to get the best view of the castle. Making sure I wasn't the one to hold up the bus, I ran down the hill all worried only to be the first one back all sweaty for nothing! Once we got back to Munich, I went to Augustiner Beer Garden, the largest Beer Garden in Europe, with the Aussie couples for dinner and beer of course! It wrapped up a fun day of adventure and it was nice to have some cool people to hang out with.Read more
