As each year passes we get the opportunity to celebrate life. If you’re going to live in Europe you might as well celebrate your birthday in a castle, like a true princess! Krissy moved here last year and quickly became one of my closest friends (and neighbors) in Germany. We were delighted to help her celebrate another successful year of living life to the fullest. We booked reservations at this beautiful old castle that was built around the year 1200 (ish). It has a beautiful restaurant that overlooks the lush green hills of Germany, including a herd of cows grazing on the hill next to it.
The food was delicious and we enjoyed various ice cream desserts afterwards. It was pretty dark when we left so we didn’t get a chance to tour the castle. After we got all the way home and I realized I left my favorite aviator sunglasses on the table. Luckily most German people are incredibly honest and when I called the restaurant they said “Of course we will hold them for you.”
I went back to get my sunnies today with the intention of picking them up and leaving. However, it was such a beautiful sunny day, I couldn’t resist walking around the huge castle ruins. I hope you enjoy a few snaps of this beautiful historical place.
We are very lucky to live in Deutschland, the land of the castles. So we are starting a new tradition of celebrating birthdays in castles because sometimes…life really is a real time fairytale.
