Today started off on a very sad note, as we had to say goodbye to Natalie. It is so weird being with someone for every second of the day (waking and sleeping) for three weeks and then, poof, they're gone. Unfortunately, we also had to bid farewell to Steve a few hours later as well, leaving just Kat and I. I cannot tell you how strange it is to go from traveling with four people down to two!
We decided to venture to the Bavarian countryside and visit the Neuschwanstein Castle before we took an overnight train to Paris. After making our reservation on the night train to Paris, the ticket agent informed us that the next train to Fussen was leaving in 3 minutes. With our packs on, we awkwardly sprinted, which was more like waddle running, to our train. We made it just in time and I spent the next two hours recovering from my Oktoberfest hangover and horrible sprint. The train ride to Fussen was very scenic and I never realized the German countryside was so beautiful.
