Germany trip #3: Castles!!
We got up pretty early for a trip to Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau -- two castles at the same location. Both are so booked up and difficult to get into that you have to show up way early for your booked tour, and you're out of luck if you're late. So we took a shuttle bus most of the way up the mountain, and walked from there. Amazing, gorgeous views, just incredible. It was either raining or hot, and I had to schlep my dang sweatshirt all day and only wore it a little bit (this was a theme throughout the trip -- mostly I was hot from the much higher humidity, and usually sorry I'd brought the sweatshirt).
