I was invited recently by Ting from My Travel Monkey to take part in her “Holiday Snapshots” series. It’s a great format – Ting interviews bloggers about a favourite holiday and includes some special snapshots. I chose to do our recent trip to Munich and Bavaria and it was very hard to choose only a few photos! To read the full “Le Chic En Rose” interview head over to Ting at Holiday Snapshots #38 Munich. In the meantime here is a montage of some of my favourite Munich memories.
We visited the Residenz, the magnificent home of the Wittelsbachs, the imperial family who ruled over the Bavarian lands from 1180 to 1918.
If I had to pick a highlight (and there were many) it would be the wonderful day we spent in the Bavarian Alps visiting the stunning Neuschwanstein Castle – a creation dreamt up by the so-called Mad King Ludwig, Ludwig II of Bavaria. Mlle, our daughter, had joined us from London by this point and after some inclement weather the previous few days, we were rewarded with a perfect, sunny spring day for our day trip from Munich.
Talking of holidays, Monsieur Le Chic and yours truly are heading off after the weekend for a short break at Yallingup, down in the beautiful south west of WA. Mobile and internet coverage is sporadic in those parts so I’ll be offline for a little while. However I’ll have plenty of photos and stories to share on my return as well as finishing off my German series. If you missed my previous posts on our Munich and Bavarian trip you can find them here!
I’ll leave you with a photo of the pretty streets of the Munich Altstadt at night – we stayed right in the heart of this lovely area and since it was still crisp and cold in the evenings we often had the streets more or less to ourselves. This street was one of the little ones leading off the Marienplatz – the tower of the Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) is in the background.
