So I was thinking about my trip to Europe last year, and realized that was before I had a blog, so I thought I would post some pictures for you ladies country by country!
Germany wasn’t a country I was expecting a lot from. I had never heard anyone rave about how beautiful it was. But looking back, it was certainly one of my favorite places. We spent a lot of time in Bavaria visiting Neuschwanstein Castle. Bavaria was really like being in a fairytale. You start to see why our fairy tales came from this area. It is gorgeous.
You have to hike up to the castle, which was amazing and fun. This is the view from before we started.
Once you get up there the hike was totally worth it. Jaw dropping in it’s beauty much?!
Then you realize you are standing on an ancient rickety wooden bridge. So you take a picture of the scary drop. You can’t tell how high it is from this picture, but trust me…it’s high.
I took these from the balcony of the castle.
This view is my favorite from this location.
This painted house was in a village called Oberammergau. All of the buildings in the village have scenes painted on them. This village has an interesting story. During the black plague, the people promised God that if their village was sparred, every ten years they would hold a passion play depicting the life of Christ. The village escaped the plague, and ever since 1634 they have held a passion play every ten years! The next one is in 2020.
This is inside the local chapel. Amazing! It was a tiny village, but the church was so incredibly beautiful.
These last few are from a graveyard outside our hotel. It was very old and so beautiful.
