Travel Photo of the Week – Week 8

Each week I’ll be showcasing one of my favorite photographs from my travels. Some are new, some are old. Some were taken on my phone (by necessity). Some are from Philadelphia, some from much farther than that… This week’s photograph was taken at Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany in 2018.

Built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, Neuschwanstein Castle is a fairy tale like castle (that actually inspired Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle!) and the subject of probably millions of photos. That’s why when my boyfriend suggested I accompany him to Munich on a business trip, I immediately decided that I wanted to travel to Füssen to see the castle for myself.
