Okay, so last we chatted I was nursing a cold and promised to try and get you caught up a bit on our adventures!
Well, I felt a bit better waking up Friday and so I spent the day Friday with the fam...we went to Ramstein to do some first of the month errands like get our fuel card renewed, renew the car rental, yada yada yada. We also met up with a friend of ours who's husband is stationed here in Germany...we only got to spend about ten minutes with her but it was great to see her and we are planning a longer get together soon!
After lunch we decided to go see Burg Nanstein in Landstuhl...a totally awesome castle from the mid 1100's (more on this later).
Anywhooo, by the time we were done I had OVER done it and I paid for it yesterday. I didn't get off the couch but for a quick shower all day yesterday. I have a wicked cold...the kind that makes everything hurt...I have swollen lymph nodes on the sides of my neck the size of almonds!!! My eyes hurts yesterday so I didn't even get on the computer to resize photos. But I feel a bit better this morning and got atleast one day's worth of photos done...so here's the additional photos of when we were in Bavaria at Schloss Neuschwanstein.
Here's the castle in all it's glory!
This was a beautiful wall of wooden doors in the village below the castle that I just fell in love with.
Aren't the scrolling hinges beautiful?
Lil decided to pose for the camera...but it always gives you a sense of just how HUGE the wall was and how large the hinges were!!!
Prior to making the trek up the mountainside to the castle we thought it might be a good idea to use the restroom...well here we encountered our first "pay to pee" restroom! Yes - it was .30 Euros PER PERSON....just to use the restroom! LOL But pay we did and then we were on our way up the mountain!
As we got closer to the castle I was impressed by all the details we were seeing. The "ornateness" (if that's a word) was just awesome!
Quick shot of the girly girls at the top while we waited for our tour time in English. We were not allowed to take photos while IN the castle so here are a few shots of the outer details that I loved!
