This is May 18th, the day after Heidelberg castle. About.... 3 weeks ago ;)
Debby and Dennie decided to show us another, smaller, castle! But first, Talia and I went on a walk, in search of the beautiful Muckenloch cemetery.
|Woke up to a beautiful sunny day. This is a picture of Muckenloch from the kitchen window.|
|We found a lonely cow on the way.|
|And then a scary looking forest. We debated whether or not to go in...|
|I'm glad we did, because just past the scary forest was this lovely glade!|
|We never actually found the cemetery, so we turned back to the big scary forest.|
|There were a couple of soccer games going on just outside my aunt and uncle's neighborhood.|
|There was an awesome tower that lead to the paths along the upper wall|
|View from the stair case leading up to the wall|
|Another window from the stair case|
|Half of tower|
|This was the breath taking view of the valley surrounding the castle ^v|
|Staircase leading up to the wall|
|THUMBS UP! It was a successful tour :D ... My thumb looks really long. O.o|
|We decided to go to the Pippifox cafe for ice cream, and set out on the cobblestone path back to the village.|
|A wedding party was having their reception in a nearby restaurant while we were touring the town|
|Milk shakes at Pippifox. Omnomnomnom :3|
|I think Talia might have been a little too excited for her milkshake...|
|I'm not quite sure why she took so many pictures of her milkshake, other than trying to get an odd expression from me in the background|
|This is my first European crepe! It was delicious. It had salmon in it. And horse radish. It was just plain taste-bud changing!|
|This is Talia's crepe! She got a ham and cheese one. ;)|
|.... Talia went a lil crazy with the pictures...|
|The grandparents decided tot ake the scenic route back to Muckenloch. These were the stairs leading to the forest trails|
|Can you see the monkey?|
|A the end of the trail, we found the lock and dam, and crossed. It was an interesting thought knowing that the only thing separating me from a long drop was wire mesh. Sorry all these photo's are greenish. I forgot to change the setting on my camera!|
|Talia and I found an awesome spot on the pavement for shadow pictures when we crossed the dam. ;)|
Anyway, after I came home, I sat back and relaxed for the rest of the day. Talia took the camera back into her possession and took random pictures of me doing things. :P
|Writing a postcard to my family|
|Ready for bed, and updating my blog!|
At the moment, I'm about 35 hours from being home in Minnesota. Yeah, I counted. :P I'm sad to leave, but also super excited to see my family and friends whom I haven't seen in 4 WHOLE WEEKS!
Talia left on Friday, so I'm all alone with no one here beside me. :( I'm missing her like crazy!
Anyway, y'all won't read this for another 7 hours or so, seeing as you're all asleep.
This will be my last post in Europe! I didn't have enough time to upload all of my pictures from May 19th, so I guess you'll have to wait 35 hours for the rest!
Can't wait to be home :D
