We interupt this regularly scheduled post to give you an ‘awwwwwwww’ moment.
A few weeks ago, a co-worker approached me because her daughter, Daniela, wanted an American penpal. She asked if I had any girls about her age in my family…..
We are mostly girls in my family so that was easy…..I was able to give her two penpals: my Goddaughter Christina and my neice Katelyn. Daniela, according to her mother, has been over the moon happy with her new friends. Apparently she gets up even earlier for school to check her email.
Anyway, my co-worker pulled me aside today to tell me that her daughter has been so happy that she wanted to thank me:
She baked me a cake! Also, she wrote a sweet little thank you note to go along with it. It definitely tugged at my heart strings. I didn’t expect such a thank you. I just enjoyed that I could bring two worlds together among these girls 🙂
And now for something completely different….
So the next part of T and my craaaaaazy Saturday, after our descent from Hohenkrähen, we stopped at Radolfzell for a quick bite to eat:
Anyway, I didn’t take photos of our food because we were starving by the time it came and we wanted to eat!
So afterwards, we hopped back in the car and headed towards Singen where our next castle was: Hohentwiel.
Hohentwiel was a beast compared to Hohenkrähen. It is actually the largest ruined fortress in Germany and they weren’t kidding:
This is what Hohenltwiel looks like on a good day:
Unfortunately the day we went was not one of those days. Also, after climbing Hohenkrähen it was a workout.
After a climb we came a crossed the entrance. Through the tunnel took us to another entrance:
There were also people dressed in costume! Why? Well you will have to tune in on Friday to get the answer to that questions!
It was such a cool castle. Hohenkrähen reminded me of Rohan as we climbed it but Hohentwiel reminded me of the Eyrie.
Do you know what I am talking about?
Well, for the non-nerds out there: Rohan is the a kingdom of Men from Lord of the Rings.
But I still think it is more like the Eyrie from George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire:
Ok….so maybe they are a little different, but the climb appeared just as extreme 😉
Tune in Friday where you will find out why there was someone dressed as though they were an extra on Outlander…
