Where: “Mad” King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany
When: May 2002
How Did We Get There: We flew into Frankfurt, rented an Audi, drove on the Romantic Road to Rothenburg ob der Tauber and then took the Autobahn south to Bavaria.
About the Photo Op: We walked out to the Marienbrucke, which is the suspension bridge over the Pollat Gorge, and a dashing German was standing there wearing a traditional Tyrolean Fedora and Trachten wool jacket. Of course I looked at him thinking, “I want him in the photo with me.” He guessed what I was thinking and said in perfect English, “Would you like a photo?” DANKE!
