Once upon a time…

Did you know that Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle was inspired by Neuschwanstein Castle? ❤

Actually the castle always reminds me more of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and some sources say it also was the inspiration for this. I’m not sure what’s true. Anyway.. since I’d known about this I always wanted to visit this castle in Bavaria. It’s been some years since I visited this place together with my boyfriend but I remember this trip pretty well because it wasn’t trouble-free.. As usually we booked a room via airbnb and we were told that it’s okay if we arrive later in the evening. As we got stuck in a traffic jam we got to our accommodation quite late. We ringed the bell and called our host on the phone but noone opened and we couldn’t reach her. I have to admit this upset me a little as she told us it’s okay to arrive late. We were really tired and just wanted to take a shower and have a good sleep so that we could get up early and be fit for our hike the next day. In the end there was no other possibility than to sleep in the car though. At least we could see the castle from where we parked..Weiterlesen »

Discovering your local nature.

This weekend I went on a bike ride and this made me think about how beautiful it is where I live. In everday life I often forget about this and don’t appreciate the beauty that is around me. I guess many of you feel similar.

We often complain about our homeland not to be interesting and beautiful enough but even in your familiar environment it’s always possible to discover new things. Just look who we surprisingly met:

Of course I’d rather see these animals in their original country but it made me really happy to see them anyway. 🙂 So if you are complaining about where you live but you don’t have enough time or money at the moment (just like me) to travel somewhere else, stop complaining, start discovering your local nature instead and enjoy what it has to offer.
