One last trip

My last trip before the start of the exam marathon will be towards the south of Germany. I am planning on going to the Bodensee for a few days of relaxation. On the way, my plan is to pay a visit to the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. The excitement of the trip forced me to make some research about the destinations I would like to travel. Actually, one should always have an overall idea about the structures or landscapes he/she likes to visit, this makes the experience much more intense and meaningful in my opinion.

The construction of the Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned by Ludwig II. The castle was planned as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner, who was a composer and a theatre director. I also learned that Ludwig used his own wealth for the construction of the palace rather than using the Bavarian public funds.

The figure of the castle was somehow familiar to me, after reading some articles on the internet I found out that the Neuschwanstein Castle was inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. It must have been hidden for a long time in my subconsciousness. The construction of the castle started in 1869 and finished in roundabout three decades. I think that is astonishing given to the pictures of the castle.

Bodensee is called “Lake Constance” in English. It is a lake on the River Rhine, located at the northern skirts of the Alps. Germany, Switzerland and Austria are sharing borders to the lake. It provides fresh water to many cities in south Germany. My plan is to do some cycling alongside the Lake Constance, depending on the weather of course. I also want to do some hiking and explore the nature.

I believe this trip is going to give me the motivation for the preparation of the exams and also it will help me to get rid of the anxiety which was caused by the workload over the few months. Germany has a fantastic nature and I believe it should not be overseen. I am looking forward to this trip. Ta-ta!
