neuschwanstein castle!



the day after our epic thanksgiving celebration and feast in munich, the ten of us wrights traveled on a tram and then a train and then a bus to get to neuschwanstein castle!

when i went to neuschwanstein last year with my mom and sisters, ian was a bit green with envy because he had always wanted to see that spectacular castle himself. so when we decided to go to munich for thanksgiving, we knew that making the day trip to neuschwanstein was a must!

for weeks before we left for germany, i hoped and hoped that we would have snow at neuschwanstein ... can you imagine how magical that would be?! instead we got a foggy, grey, dry day ... but i'm going to go ahead and call it mystical and enchanting :)

moses and i hung out around the grounds of the castle while the rest of the crew went inside (since i had been inside last year, i didn't want to pay for a ticket again). after ian and hyrum's family finished the tour, we all hiked up to the bridge to take in the famous vista across the gorge to the castle. i was so excited for going on the bridge because it was closed when i went to neuschwanstein last year! the visibility wasn't great but it was still so pretty! i asked ian to take some photos of moses and i in our matching hats on the bridge, and he took about seventy five :)

we all walked back down the hill through the woods together and agreed that our visit was well worth the trip!

  2. Charity - I live in Utah and love the hats you and your little one have on in the picture by the castle. Where did you find one small enough for your sweet little guy and one to fit you? I'd love to order some. Thanks!
