Day 5 of 5-Day Challenge

Schloss Neuschwanstein, the stuff fantasy is made of

Schloss Neuschwanstein, the stuff fantasy is made of

For the last day of this challenge, I’ve chosen a childhood fantasy: Schloss Neuschwanstein, near Fussen, Germany.

Like many people my age, I was fascinated and enchanted by the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang: I think I went to the cinema about 8 times to see it with different people as I just couldn’t get enough of it. This castle, of course, features in it as the home of the Baron and I knew one day I would get to visit it. Well, that dream came true 3 years ago, in the summer of 2012, when DH and I finally made it to Bavaria, a stunning region whose beauty cannot be described in words and to which we’re returning this year.

I would now like to nominate Pedmar10 from http://paris1972-versailles2003.com/ for this challenge. Pedmar is a keen traveller based in the Morbihan, Brittany, France, with many a story to tell and photographs to share.

The challenge is: Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.

Gruissan Marina in the afternoon sun

Gruissan Marina in the afternoon sun

For the fourth day of this challenge I’ve chosen another of my favourite photos, taken in Gruissan, in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in south east France in December 2012.

I’ve chosen this photo because it reminds me of the beautiful winter light and the lovely long walk we took around the Marina in that glowing and warm afternoon. The buildings in the background are sun-kissed, intensifying the warm terracotta and pink colours, all perfectly reflected in the water, just like a mirror, so that one can enjoy this utterly charming sight twice at the same time.

I would now like to nominate Shimon from https://thehumanpicture.wordpress.com/ for this Five Day Photo Challenge. Shimon is a retired photography teacher who lives in Jerusalem and always has wonderful stories, experiences and photographs to share with his readers.

The challenge is: Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
