There are some very high mountains outside my tent door, up to 9000ft, and the tops ...
... Eventually sleep was found again until I woke up around 6am. Gen and I got ready and walked to the main train station where we were meeting our Royal Castles Tour group. We arrived very early and opted to buy some fruit for breakfast. It's cheaper to eat bread/pastries, but there comes a point where you just want something fresh. We caught our English bus tour and so began our 11+ hour day of travelling to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein, two of Ludvig II's castles. The first was just ...
