On our day trip to Epernay, Nick and I had the opportunity to take a private tour at Moet and Chandon. We started the day with a simple goal of being able to say that we drank champagne in Champagne France, but we left with a completely new and profound appreciation for the bubbly wine.
I’ve been dying to go to a futbol (soccer) game ever since that time I was in Buenos Aires and one of the local teams lost, causing them to drop to a lower division. The fans were so pissed that they attempted to lock the opposing team’s fans in the stadium and burn it to the ground.
When researching day trips from Barcelona I discovered Montserrat, and being a sucker for a good view there was no need to look any further.
La Sagrada Familia has over 102,000 reviews on TripAdvisor with an almost 5 star average. To put these numbers in perspective, Machu Picchu only has 14,000 reviews and Angkor Wat currently has 29,000.
We began our stay in Germany by spending a few days in Munich, and then Fussen. From there, we did as most Bavarian road-tripping tourists do and headed North to explore the Romantic Road.
“Rainwater shower, fresh garden and a prerequisite for loving animals.” This was all I needed to read before immediately booking a night at Bettina’s Arthouse- a peaceful, 7 acre escape in Ohlstadt, Germany (only 40 minutes from Munich).
Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber is Germany’s best preserved walled town. This picturesque medieval village is one of the highlights on the Romantic Road, and it receives over 2.5 million visitors a year.
Germany’s Romantic Road is a popular tourist route that spans 220 miles (350km) between Wurzburg and Fussen. Along the way, you have the option to stop at dozens of picturesque villages and medieval walled towns.
Fussen is a charming Bavarian town at the end (or beginning) of the Romantic Road. Just about everyone passes through here on their way to Neuschwanstein Castle, but most don’t stop. Nick and I decided to stay the night in Füssen at an AirBnB, and I’m so glad we did.
Nestled in the hills of Bavaria, just above the village of Hohenschwangau, lies a beautiful fairytale castle fit for the pages a story-book. Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned by King Ludwig II in 1869.
