Camping In The German Alps!

So You Call Yourself A Homeschooler?

For those of you who have read our testimony in the 5-part series Marriage, Family, And Homeschooling – you know that we are embarking on our 5th long deployment in the last 8 years. We were blessed with the opportunity to spend some of our last days prior to the deployment together camping in the German Alps :)


Here are some pictures of the highlights!

Some info about the castle….

 


This was our “first” family camping trip, so it was fun, BUT we did cut it a bit short. We only stayed 4 days as the weather was a bit rainy and cold so we decided to pack up camp early and come on home! We will try camping again when Daddy gets home next year – next destination – Europa Park (Europe’s answer to Disneyworld!).

    OH, how I remember our time there with our children when they were little. My daughter wanted to live there forever in the castle (truth be told she still does). Enjoy the rest of your 'vacation'.

    Your photos are so clear and bright. The lake you visited looks like it is in a beautiful setting. We’ve also been to Neuschwanstein as we live in Germany too. Thanks for linking-up with I Saw it on Vacation.
