As one of the coldest and rainiest springs in Germany is slowly passing by, I am thinking back to the trip we made about the same time one year ago.

Schloss Neuschwanstein is one every organized tour agenda, but despite of the tourist crowds it still remains one of the most impressive castles in Germany and perhaps in the whole world. Here are some photo memories about a beautiful sunny day when we visited! Hope the good weather is coming back again this year…

We were nominated to participate in Capture the Colour travel photo contest by two great fellow bloggers: Irina of Trips That Work and Henry of Fotoeins. Great thanks for this! It is tight, but we managed to select our favourite blue, green, red, white and yellow photos just a couple of days before the deadline. Phew – we are in and here is the result of our selection:



Dear readers and participants of the 46th Travel Photo Roulette!

Our sincere apologies for the delay in announcing the winner and therefore the next host of the contest, but now the time has come. This was a very difficult decision to make. Many of the photos touched our hearts, but unfortunately there can only be one winner. You’ll find out who it is in a second, but first let us list our top 5 favourties (in no particular order)…


On the weekend we hiked along the picturesque Mühlenwanderweg, which takes you around a tiny village of Simonswald in Southern Black Forest. This was the perfect thing to do just one week before Catalin’s departure to India. This hike is a great way to see rural Germany just the way it’s described in tour guides and I’m hoping this is the way Catalin will remember it in the next 3 months when being far away in Asia :-)

To our huge surprize last week our photo of a monuments in the Gobi desert won the 45th round of the  Travel Photo Roulette with the theme “Surreal”. We are extremely honoured and of course very proud of ourselves (the competition was tough!) – great thanks go to Skinny Backpacker for picking us!
