Wikipedia sites the design of Neuschwanstein inspired both Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella’s castles.

Souvenir choices from London and Neuschwanstein

Souvenir choices from London and Neuschwanstein

For a non-traditional seasonal post, I decided to photograph souvenirs from this year’s travels for several reasons.

  • Elfcroft loves fabrics.
  • Neither of the trips were even dreams at this time last year.  This is a reminder of surprises and possibilities of a new year….a British Jubilee and Bavarian Alps.
  • The sunburst pattern was on the ceiling in the castle throne room.  As a symbol, it is in contrast to the shortest day/longest night of the year.  Perhaps, I should use it again for the summer solstice.
  • Also, there is an expression that the sun never sets on the British Commonwealth.

(When the gift stores sell pillow covers without the insert, there are no worries with packing for the return flight 🙂  Love them!
