I am a recent college graduate with a degree in art education and to the dismay of some friends and family I have chosen to turn down a great job and travel for a little while around the U.S. with some friends from college.

As we sadly left Toblach, we looked forward to the next phase of out trip. After a night in Innsbruck, Austria we were off to Germany for one final week. Starting in the very south of Bavaria we spent a night and day in Fussen, the location of the fairytale castle of Neuschweintstein. This was to be our last night in hotels and we had a nice place just outside of the village. We spent sometime exploring ... Read More »

The villa this time was situated near the center of a beautiful Spanish colonia... Read More »
