Throughout the entire week I had been beyond excitement: Ludwig's castles, forests, mountains and long, green valleys.Those were the things I have always dreamed of and which enforced my imagination.
It took us eight hours to arrive at our destination and we were greeted by the wonderful Alps and a heavy rain.
|The nearby "Pöllatschlucht": very loud, but still amazing|
Schloss Neuschwanstein was our first stop, even though we did not go inside this time (photos will follow in a latr post). Sundays are simply too busy.
Then we went around the Alpsee, a lake which offers a good view over the castles Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein. At first everything was very crowded, because of all the tourists who came from all over the world, but after a while there were only few encounters with other people.

My parents complained greatly about this "unfortunate" weather, but it was very much to my liking. Of course I did not like the feeling of wet undies, but the lake looked simply beautiful with the rain disrupting the surface and the mist coming closer and closer to the water.

What are you grateful for this week?
