Schloss Lichtenstein with Ulla and Manfred

Today was a fun way to spend a Monday; ie: not at work or at university. We totally just chilled out with Ulla and Manfred, who treated us to a full, fun day of fun and exploring something new.
Ulla and Manfred picked us up from outside the front gate of our base and drove us about an hour south to Schloss Lichtenstein. I have lost count of the number of castles we have visited during our time here in Germany. For a girl who loves castles, today´s excursion was a perfect way to end our time in lovely Deutschland. Don´t you just love the drawbridge?
I told Zev that he could call me Princess Fifi if he wanted to.
Do you see the little dwarves holding up the stool?
We did a castle tour and then had lunch in a traditional German restaurant overlooking the castle. Zev had the Paniertes Schnitzel with SpƤtzle and a side salad and I had the "Reh" (venison) with "Pfifferlinge" (chanterelle mushrooms) and a side salad.
Although the sun shone sproadically, the wind really picked up at the top of the mountain. It was still a fun day trip nonetheless.
I can see Ulla and Manfred visiting us in the US. I can´t wait to explore our new location in Virginia, which apparently has lots of great historical battlefields!
Now we need to get started packing! Hope your week is going well.
God bless, The Yorks
