Welcome to June and the beautiful people who joined me this month.
Summer is here!
June 1st: Linderhof Castle
We had some rain but it could have been worse. It was a pretty tough bunch today. We had to leave 3 behind. A couple and their college-aged daughter got separated. (He hired a taxi to drive to the castle and they all proceeded to the train)
Quiz Winners! Amy and Jenn Laurie and Matt John and Judy
This fine couple was sitting behind me. They said that they intentionally left their camera at home. So this picture is proof that they were here.
June 2nd: Lake St. Wolfgang, Austria.
What a lucky day. Rain was expected but we cruised the entire day without a drop. 21 of us had a good time.

My biggest group ever was today. Every seat was taken plus babies were in laps. We had rain in Linderhof but the sun came out in the afternoon. LaGrange, Texas was in the house along with 14 other languages.
Cody and Tony learned about geography. I expect great things from these two winners.
June 13th: Linderhof Castle
We had nice weather until a violent thunder/rain storm hit while we were atop the mountain at Neuschwanstein. A tough group it was on the anniversary of King Ludwig's death.
It was a battle royal over my geography quiz. These six groups were part of the most competitive game of the year.
June 15th: Linderhof Castle
The weatherman predicted the worst. We got off lucky with a little rain at the end of the tour. A young lady guest fell down and went with her party to the hospital. She had a few stitches.
June 16th: Lake St. Wolfgang
We defied the weather forecast by having nice weather all day. It was a great day. Teacher Clark and crew from Springfield, Oregon were very cool. Thank you all.

We were a fantastic group. But we were hit with thunder showers near the end of the day. (Sorry about that). Still, it was an enjoyable, relaxing day.

The forecast was rain. It didn't happen. We deserved some luck. We were a large, international group of nice, savvy travelers.
June 25th: Linderhof Castle
We were a nice English speaking group enjoying some nice weather in the morning. The rain and lightning tried to slow us down in the afternoon. But we were not to be hindered. Thank you for a nice day.
