    Linderhof Palace

    July 21, 2017 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    On Friday, we went and rode the Alpine Coaster, which is really awesome. You ride a sky lift way up the mountain and then ride in a little car, powered by gravity on a track back down the mountain. You are able to control your speed with a brake, but you can reach up to 25mph. After riding in the Alpine Coaster, we decided to head over to Garmisch to try and check out the gorge, but it started pouring rain, so we headed over to Linderhof Palace. Linderhof also belonged to King Ludwig II and was the only castle/palace that was completed while he was alive.Read more

    Oberammergau

    July 18, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    While Alex was in class, I spend most of my days strolling the streets, checking out little shops and just observing the people. Oberammergau is well known not only for their wood carvings but for their Passion Theater. Every decade, they hold one of the world's largest Passion plays. In order to be a cast member one must be either born in Oberammergau or have lived in town for 20 years. The next Passion play here will be in 2020.Read more
