It is very difficult to keep track of days! Is it Monday or Tuesday? Whatever day it is we have had a wonderful day in Austria & Germany. After breakfast we met our guide for a 3 mile hike to Neuwanstein (sp) Castle across the German border. The walk was fantastic! Much of it was along a beautiful, clear lake where we could see fish swimming many feet down. After touring the castle we hiked up to a suspension bridge to take pictures of the castle and the surrounding valley, then we hiked along a beautiful gorge with a waterfall. After a picnic lunch in town, our bus driver took us to the Tegelburg Luge. What fun!! The boys loved it and were able to go down 3 times. We got back to the hotel around 3:30 where the boys rented mountain bikes and rode down to the river to play along the shore. My pedometer says we have walked 9.88 miles (22,332 steps). We had a delicious traditional Austrian dinner of schnitzel.
