A fairy tale birthday

Once upon a time in a land far away, a middle-aged woman celebrated her 43rd birthday…

She hopped on an air-conditioned bus in Munich with her “bestie” and off they traveled through verdant countryside.  Along the way, she saw bell wearing bovines, farmers in their fields, and flowers overflowing from window boxes.  She could not contain herself!

Her excitement grew more and more with each hairpin turn and as the hills began to grow and the Alpine background came into view she began to wonder if she were dreaming.  Tucked in the folds of the mountains was a castle, Neuschwanstein to be exact, and though the front side was covered in scaffolding (something that happens only once every 30 years for cleaning) she was awed nonetheless.  The adventure had begun!
