Europe this Week
It is hard to keep the blog up to date when travelling. Even though we have internet access most days, by the time we all check our emails and Facebook, there is no time for me to blog.
we spent a week in France and saw some of their greatest castles (chateaux), bought some stuff at the Mall of Europe, had dinner at Disney Village, etc
My highlight for France was the village of Chablis, where guess what, they make Chablis wine. We stayed there for one night, then headed to Bern, Switzerland, and from there to a castle/Bible School where they welcomed us for a night. We all had a ton of fun exploring this huge castle at night all by ourselves. We were the first of the season and only guests that night, so we could explore the witches cellar and all the other mysterious rooms. Something we will always remember.
Now we are in Salzburg. We went to the MB church here met missionaries Richard and Hazel Funk, and celebrated Richard's birthday. In the afternoon we explored the big high castle on the hill and Justin, Martha and I went to the Sound of Salzburg sing-along dinner show. Enjoyed it very much. Alayna and Kara went to the Mozart dinner Show.
Tomorrow, Monday, we are booked on the Sound of Music Tour, and then we head out to Oberammergau, for the Passion Play that happens every 10 years. The performance starts Tuesday 2:30 PM and runs late into the evening.
Wednesday we plan to see the Neuschwanstein castle, spend Thursday in Munich, and then fly home on Friday.
Keep checking back. I'm tired and Martha wants to Facebook. I will be posting a lot of pictures.
