Home Sweet Home

We had a lot of driving to accomplish yesterday, as we started the day in Venice, and needed to catch our plane in Zurich this morning. The Hubster graciously agreed to allow me one last side trip, to the lovely fairyland castle of King Ludwig II.

It all looked So-o-o simple on the map, but it turned into a real driving marathon! We left Venice at 8am and drove north, hitting Innsbruck, Austria around noon. We continued on the main highway a bit further, then rambled through the country side for an hour and a half to reach the environs of Schloss Neuschwanstein.

Unfortunately, we had to wait 90 minutes until the next available tour. It was definitely worth it - but it made for a LONG day, as we didn't get into Zurich until about 9, and then couldn't find our hotel!

This morning we got up at the crack of dawn - the equivalent of 9pm last night here in Seattle. I got 2 hours of sleep on the flight home, and I'm a bit tired now, so more pictures and travelogue will have to wait.

I'm off to sleep now - in my own bed .. Yay!
