Where I stayed
On the way to the farm, Johnny Cash´s "Ring of Fire" was playing and it was followed by John Denver`s "Country Roads." This is about what Pinswang looked like.
We spent Saturday at the famous Ludwig castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Yes, Sleeping Beauty´s castle at Disneyland is taken from Neuschwanstein
After the castle visit, we hiked back to our ´farmhouse´ over an old Roman trade route from the Castles. The hike only took an hour and a half and led us past Ludwig´s favorite Lake, Alpsee, and across the German/Austrian border.
We were expecting to leave the next morning via a hotel shuttle, but ended up getting a ride from a German man who dropped off some supplies at the Schluxen. So picture this: I am crammed in the back seat of a 1970´s style Volkswagen truck with a 5 month old hunting dog who wants to make me his best friend. In the meantime, Mom is in the front seat with the driver´s shotgun resting against her legs. Needless to say, we did make it to the train station.
