After leaving Venice on a sleeper train, we arrived bright and early back in Nuremberg where my uncle picked us up and took us to my aunt house. We spent the morning resting for a while on an actual bed and taking showers before heading out again with my uncle Gerold. He took us to Rothenburg for the afternoon where he sat in a cafe and got some work done while we explored the town! This little town is surrounded by a wall that you can walk on and is nicknamed Germany’s fairytale town. They’re also famous for Schneeballen (snowball in English) which are pastry dough rolled into balls, fried, and then covered with chocolate and powder sugar…I always get one when we go to Rothenburg! They are the best!
We headed home early that day because the next morning we had an early wake up time for our anniversary pictures with Nadia Meli in Nuremberg! If you haven’t seen them yet, you should check out her blog! Her work is incredible! I’ll be sharing my favorites and a little bit about the experience on the blog sometime soon…
We wrapped up our time in Germany by spending a few days with my aunt in the Alps…We visited Neuschwanstein Castle then stayed at the sweetest little hotel in the foothills of the Alps. I love that area of Germany so much! We went row boating on a beautiful mountain lake named the Alpsee, road a ski lift up a mountain where we had lunch at a lodge, then road a summer sled on roller coaster tracks down the mountain! One of the things I’m missing most about this place right about now is the weather…It was in the 60’s most of the time we were there and it was so beautiful! I’m so ready for Fall!
These were the last few days that I got to spend with my family and I’m so glad we had this time…I’m so thankful for them and for my German heritage. We are already dreaming of when we will get to go back and visit next! I didn’t take nearly enough pictures with my actual camera, but these are some of my favorites!
Part 4 will be on the blog soon…I can’t wait to share about our time in Paris! Happy Tuesday!
