Burg Hohenzollern, Germany,
November 30, 2014.
Honestly I didn't expect to visit another castle in Germany especially when I had my thesis submission deadline on the next day, plus, I will leave Germany in a few weeks.
It was kinda last minute decision when I coincidentally met our program coordinator at the train station, and she persuaded me to join the christmas excursion, the more the merrier (or the more the cheaper we pay for bus and entrance fee hahaa). So yea, I stayed up till 4 in the morning to prepare my last minute poster for submission, just because I want to join them! After all, this would be my last get together with fellow coursemates, I guess. Sobs.
So, my #misimencariistana continues here, Hohenzollern Castle, located approximately 50 kilometres south of Stuttgart, on top of Berg Hohenzollern, at an elevation of 855 metres above sea level, 234 metres above the towns. And now lets get to the castle's history.

It was such a lovely evening, though a bit colder since we were above the cloud! But it was fascinatingly beautiful. I was in awe.

The nice blue sky turned into grey and dark, and freezing COLD! So we stayed in the church, but didn't take long until we get back to the bus.
It was very unfortunate that they were having Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market) at the castle area, and the guided tour inside the castle was not available in the meantime. Ohh dear.
Nevertheless, it was great to join and have fun with coursemates I haven't met for quite a long time (5 months perhaps?) since I didn't attend any class for this final semester.
P.s. Did I mention tomorrow is the deadline for my thesis report submission??? OMG.
