Welcome to August and the beautiful people who joined me this month.
Summer is here!
August 1st: Neuschwanstein
Spain, South America and Central America were in the house 23 strong. We also had a nice mix of native English speakers and Japanese. Also 3 Italians. It was a great day. It was cool and sunny which is a nice break for a lot of people suffering harsh summers.
August 3rd: Linderhof Castle
We were a great group today. The weather was changeable as the photo shows. But we didn't get too wet. Thanks for coming!
Team Isabella worked on the quiz most the day. Their efforts were rewarded with Evian.

A summer day at its best. Not too hot but great beer garden and touring weather. Cool people were on board today.
Hugo, Alex, Dina and Susanne teamed up They all got a sip.
My day ended with friends at the Augustiner Biergarten.
August 6th: Linderhof Castle
We were 66 on a journey today. The temperature was in the 90's F. The bus got a little warm. The cool thing was that we were all on time so we could be rolling with the A/C on. Punctuality is being considerate. Well done!
August 7th: Neuschwanstein
72 great people were on tour today. We had a Spanish/Japanese/Mandarin tour and an English tour. The forecast was for lightning and thunder. We escaped most of it. Thank you all for a nice day.
August 10th: Innsbruck
It was a nice sunny day in Austria while it was raining in Munich. The Alps are unpredictable. I had one native English speaker. We had every continent represented.
August 11th: Lake St. Wolfgang, Austria
It was not the best weather. We were a group of 70. This was my largest group ever to Salzburg. Everyone was on time and we were in a good mood despite the rain.
August 13th: Linderhof Castle
It was about as fine a day as it gets. And so many nice, savvy adventurers. We sailed thru one of the busiest days of the year at Neuschwanstein.

August 17th: Eagle's Nest
Why is it sometimes the best groups get the worst weather? In short, it was brutal. There was rain and cold and no view.
But we had Norway onboard. We had newlyweds. Malta was in the house. Team England won water. North Carolina was on their third trip with me. It was a great mix of people.
Thanks you all for making the best of things.

We were a small and brave group. Rain, or the threat of rain, was a constant throughout the day. However it was somewhat dry in the afternoon during our tour of Neuschwanstein.

August 21st: Neuschwanstein
It was one of those days when I could not get us all together for a picture. It is high season and I had to hustle Italian, German and English groups to their destinations with tickets in hand. I am sorry I don't have a picture because I had the nicest group.

What a great day! It was about an equal mix of Spanish, Italian, Japanese and English speakers. Thank you for a nice day.
And so ends August. It was hard work helping my people enjoy themselves with the pressures of the crowds of summer. In most cases I succeeded.
