Almost Home

OK, some of you have guessed one of the cities I've visited! The country that it's in borders the one where we've actually spent the most time. Karl's brother is in the army and is stationed there. One of the castles we visited is the inspiration for the one in Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Today we just got back from touring a city in another neighboring country. This city is known "City of 100 Towers" and is one of the oldest on the continent. Among other things, it is also famous for its crystal (yes I've been shopping).

Ruth asked about the contest and indeed that's the surprise I've been planning. I've tried to leave some clues. If you can name these three places and the countries they are in, a prize will arrive in your mailbox:

(1) The ski resort town with the dairy product name
(2) The castle that Disney emulated for the Magic Kingdom
(3) The Heart of Europe (with the crystal)

Bonus if you can name the town where we've spent the most time...there's an army base and it includes the name of what is considered the country's "lucky animal" which is what a lot of their local dishes are made from.

All right, must go. We are leaving tomorrow for home so it's time to pack up.

Tschuss!

Your trip sounds like it was a lot of fun.
Here are my guesses

1. Lucerne, Switzerland
2.Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany
3. Prague, Czech Republic
and the bonus answer is Schweinfurt, Germany where the pig is the "lucky animal"

Even if I'm wrong, I've learned a lot more random trivia. Thanks.

Ooooh, thank you. Never won anything before. The wash cloths are from that magazine and they are super easy to make. They go really quick too. They are my guilty pleasure, quick little something when I can't resist casting on.
