It’s been just under a month since I made the big move to Madrid and my first venture to Europe! In that time, I’ve had the privilege of seeing Madrid, London, Paris, Munich, Augsburg, Geneva (from the airport), and a few other cities that I will not soon forget. In short, it’s been pretty busy… 😉
One of the best parts of being abroad so far is the incredible people that I’m meeting. On a daytrip to a smaller town in Germany, I got to spend some extra time with a girl from my teaching program, the lovely Emily Cline. This determined girl was dead set on seeing the Neuschwanstein Castle, whether anyone came or not. I decided to tag along for this trek, and after quite a few close calls, getting to practice our German accents (Owwwgsbug Howptinhof!!), eating Bratwurst like it was our jobs, and watching most of the Sound of Music in desolate train stations, I’d say we got some good bonding time in.
Emily and I did not realize that we would be hiking 80 minutes roundtrip to see this castle once we arrived in Schwangau, Germany, but I’m so glad that we did. As the sun was setting and we were surrounded by a canopy of trees, we stopped and captured a few shots to help wrap up the day.
Emily, I had such a great time exploring Germany with you. Thanks for letting me be a little silly with my camera. Looking forward to a great year abroad!
