Visit a Castle with Mom

One of the things my mom would really like to do is visit a “real” castle.  Since, she probably won’t splurge on that kind of thing for herself, I’d like to be able to take her.

Some of the castles I find particularly intriguing are:

Neuschwanstein Castle
Burghausen Castle
Hohenschwangau Castle

Ultimately, it will be my mom’s pick, but since there are multiple castles I’d like to see in Germany, that would be my first choice.

Money is of course the main barrier to checking this one off the list. A rough estimate of how much money I’ll need to save up for a week long trip for two is:

Lodging: $1200
Food: $300
Travel: $2000
Misc: $1000
Total: $4500

I will update the blog when I’m ready to start making plans.
