Brown and blue

Sooo sorry it has been such a long time since our last post!  You would think we have been busy or something!  A couple weeks ago now Josh had a few days off so we decided to take a trip into our bordering country, Germany.

Maybe you have heard of the Disney World castle?!?! Well we went to the castle that it was based off of.  The Neuschwanstein castle is about 6 1/2 hours from our house in the Netherlands.  So not too terrible but still quite a trip with a 7 month old in the car. 

Along the way we stopped at the Mercedes Benz museum which was pretty neat.  Kind of a boy thing to do but fun to see all the old cars!!

Then we were back on the road and heading into the mountains.  It was the perfect time of year to go with all the leaves turning colors!  We made it to the hotel just as the sun was starting to go down making the moutain view even more beautiful!

While visiting the castle we stayed in this very small village that survives off of the thousands of tourists that come through each day.  The only thing you see there are hotels, restaurants and gift shops!

We took a couple tours through the castles by hiking our way up the mountain and on our way down stopped to treat ourselves with a little pizza and beer! 

We stayed 2 nights and were back on the road.  On our way back we made a slight detour and followed the German wine road.  It is 55 km of grapes, vineyards and fun little villages to go through. It was pretty amazing to see, we didn't do much (well really any) tasting since we had a big drive ahead of us.  But we did buy a few wines that have yet to be tasted.

Germany really is a beautiful country and we had a great time visiting!  As always it was nice to be back in our own beds!!

Next trip: Home for Christmas :)
