SkyWatch Friday


Standing by the Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World and looking straight up. It was a gorgeous winter day in central Florida, especially because I was sharing it with my daughter and two oldest grandkids. This castle was inspired by a number of real and fictional palaces, and I'm planning a visit to one of them, Neuschwanstein Castle, this summer. Linking to SkyWatch Friday.

Neuschwanstein Castle is a weird castle. It is really like a Disney castle. You know the owner was a mad men? You can see it how he had this castle built. But it is funny to visit.

biebkriebels, yes, I know all about Neuschwanstein Castle and Mad Ludwig. It just happens to be one of the stops on my tour of several countries. It should be fun!

This is lovely and you would be lucky to see the real one. I passed by a long time ago, but there were an incredible line of cars, so I had to skip it!

Oh, you will love visiting Neuschwanstein. I toured it back in the 80's way before digital photography so I'd love to go back and get some good photos. It is the ultimate fairy tale castle.
