Neuschwanstein Castle - Germany
The talk of next year's family vacation has switched from a cruise around the Mediterranean to spending about a week in Germany. Well twist my arm! I'm a smidge German and would love to explore my homeland. To prep for this trip-in-progress, I've taken to reading up on what's best to see and do in Germany. In my studies, I came across this castle, casually known as one of "Mad" King Ludwig's castles. Just take a look at that picture. Yeah, I have to go there. Like now. It was the inspiration for Disney's famous Sleeping Beauty's Castle, so naturally it's magical. Neuschwanstein or bust!
