Fairy Neuschwanstein

Incredibly sunny, bright green fields, flat, warm, funny. And there, at the limit, the high mountains of the Alps, imponent, majestic, brushed with clear white snow, even elegant. To represent you how it was like, I can only think about the Heidi place, jumping and running happily across that surrounding product of nature.
Mostly known as the Crazy King, Ludwig II ordered to build that castle. The Castle. Visited every year by more than one million of tourists, it is said to be the most famous castle in the world and the inspiration source of Disney. Hardly pronounced by non-german speakers, Neuschwanstain Schloss pays tribute to its name, it is an enormus architecture challenge in the middle of the steep rocky surface. And then you are there, listening the silence of the nature, imagining the great Wagner playing freely between that walls, feeling the cold soft wind touching your face, you find yourself living in a fairy tale, forgetting that this sensation could have an end.
Last Easter I visited New York, and the most breathtaking feeling from the American Capital that I lived was the moment at the Top of The Rock, observing the views of Manhattan from the Observation Deck. Now, this year, I have been to a much different scenario but, I promise, the feeling is the same.

Having my boyfriend's car in Germany was an advantage to get to Füssen, in the region of Baviera, the nearest village to the Castle. I flight to Basel, then we drove through southern Germany charming roads and we stopped at Uberlingen (near Lake Konstanz) to sleep at a Landhotel that was perfectly adapted to our conditions: cheap and nice. The following day, we led ourselves to Neuschwanstein, giving uncountable thanks to the weather that the morning offered that day.
