I remember doing the drawing, who I was with, and while not of great importance just thinking I should—never knowing that the location would be changed and that the drawing would mean a little more for reasons only some will understand.

German vacation 1

The bizarre wooden castle “Schachenhaus” sits atop an Alpine mountain peak in the German state of Bavaria, a lesser-known but by no means less surreal figment of King Ludwig II’s imagination (famous for Neuschwanstein, aka Disney’s Cinderella castle). Unlike Ludwig’s other “fairytale” castles, you can only get to this gem via a hellish 5-hour hike, […]
