    Default Milan, Verona, Neuschwantstein trip

    I love this city - Milan. My second time and I think I would live here.

    We drove about 8hrs, but travelled about 14 due to stops for lunch and the mountain coaster in the black forest. Little tip? If you live in south or central-west germany, take a date to Lucerne for lunch. Lucerne is incredible. Most are just phone snapshots, sorry.


    Got into Milan about 20:30 - set up my camera to have folks selfie-shoot right in my shot! jerks


    Todtnau, germany @Trigg and @Nukeman will see this place soon.

    I loved Neuschwanstein. Visited the castle with the family while stationed in Germany.

    Nuke and i had an amazing time traveling around Germany with Darin. I loved seeing the castles and wondering around the adorable cities and towns. I'm pretty sure I had a permanent grin on my face the entire 5 days. I guarantee we wouldn't have found half of the places he took us if we were left to our own devices.
