Summer in Deutschland: Part VII

We woke, one morning, and got ready to take a tour of our last castle.


We piled into the car and made our way, one last time, into Luxembourg and Vianden Castle.

  1. Very beautiful pictures. I love that one of you standing there with your camera around your neck and it looks like you are looking in your bag or something. Very pretty! Hope you have a great day. Love ya!

  2. Beautiful pictures!  That sky is gorgeous, so is the look down into the valley.  I love how you get your aunt and uncle in some of the shots, so they aren’t just of the castle.Did you get your new buddy’s address so you can keep in contact? 

  3. WOW!  Such amazing pictures and breathtaking views!  You have the most beautiful scenery there!  I am so jealous!  We have pretty scenery here in Ontario, but NOTHING like that!
