A few highlights from my recent trip
Kehlsteinhaus, also known as the Eagle's Nest, which was Hitler's mountain retreat, built by the Nazis as a gift for his 50th birthday. It is located just over the border from Salzburg near Berchtesgaden, Germany. This is the only Nazi structure that was not destroyed by bombs after the liberation of Germany after World War II. I took this picture from the terrace.
Neuschwanstein Castle which is located above the German village of Hohenschwangau in the Bavarian Alps. I took this picture while standing on a footbridge on the way up to the castle.
Fern Pass. You can see part of a pretty alpine lake near the bottom right in the picture.
Please note: I will be extending my blogging break because I will have all of my grandchildren with me for a few weeks during the rest of the summer. We are planning many exciting adventures, so I don't feel that I can devote the time I usually do to my blog. I hope to be back soon!
