Ah, Bavaria .... and the finale of our honeymoon tales

Friday, December 31, 2010

From ze Swiss, we went through Austria and found our way to Edelweiss -- a resort exclusive to military and their families, perfectly situated at the base of the Bavarian Alps at the edge of Garmisch (GARMISCH!!!!! Sorry, inside joke). They have an outdoor jacuzzi the size of our apartment that overlooks the gorgeous mountains completely surrounding the area. The huge lodge continously plays the soundtrack to Dances with Wolves. Ha, we kid you not! We had those songs burned in our head so badly that when we came home we HAD to watch it. They had american bars throughout the lodge with some of the best beer we've ever had from Germany & Austria (coors is in a league of its own) & drank huge mugs of it in the jacuzzi aweing at the view. We went on a day trip to King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein Castle and hiked in the Bavarian Alps ... tried German cuisine like potato pancakes & apple strudal ... and relaxed for a few days before getting on a train across Germany to the Air Base at Ramstein to come home.

We saved stories and details for when we see you in person....
It was the most amazing month traveling together as newlyweds across an expanse of absolutely incredible places and we're so thankful for it...

Our combined list of where we want to go next in the world is too long to put on this blog...
